This library, with the Class source code, extends the Canvas functionalities.

Some time ago I was playing with B4J Canvas with methods not exposed directly to B4J.

There was a question in the forum for a routine to draw rectangles with round corners.

So, I think it may be useful for others.

**Version:**1**CanvasExt****Functions:****appendSVGPath**(SVGPath As String) As String

*Appends a SVGPath string to the current path*

M = moveTo

L = lineTo

H = horizontal lineTo

V = vertical lineTo

C = curveto

S = smooth curveto

Q = quadratic Bézier curve

T = smooth quadratic Bézier curveto

A = elliptical arc

Z = closePath

All of the commands above can also be expressed with lower letters.

Capital letters means absolutely positioned, lower cases means relatively positioned.

https://www.w3schools.com/graphics/svg_path.asp**arc**(CenterX As Double, CenterY As Double, RadiusX As Double, RadiusY As Double, StartAngle As Double, Lenght As Double) As String

*Adds an arc to the arc end point in the current path*

CenterX, CenterY coordinates of the center

RadiusX and RadiusY X and Y radius

StartAngle

Length length of the arc

Adds path elements to the current path to make an arc that uses Euclidean degrees.

This Euclidean orientation sweeps from East to North, then West, then South, then back to East.

The coordinates are transformed by the current transform as they are added to the path.**arcTo**(x1 As Double, y1 As Double, x2 As Double, y2 As Double, Radius As Double) As String

*Adds an arc to the next point (x2, y2) in the current path*

x1, y1 coordinates of point 1

x2, y2 coordinates of point 2
