DrawRotateImage - rotating an image by a specified angle

``````' Rotate an image by a specified angle (in degrees)
' The x and y parameters are the coordinates of the upper-left point
' Note: requires Imports System.Drawing.Imaging
'
' Example:
'   Dim gr As Graphics = Me.CreateGraphics
'   gr.Clear(Color.White)
'   Dim bmp As New Bitmap("logo.bmp")
'   DrawRotateImage(gr, bmp, 100, 220, 45)
'   DrawRotateImage(gr, bmp, 300, 220, 90)
'   DrawRotateImage(gr, bmp, 500, 220, 135)
'   bmp.Dispose()
'   gr.Dispose()

Sub DrawRotateImage(ByVal gr As Graphics, ByVal bmp As Bitmap, _
ByVal x As Single, ByVal y As Single, ByVal angle As Single)
' Convert the angle in degrees.
angle = angle / (180 / Math.PI)
' Find the position of (x1,y1) and (x2,y2).
Dim x1 As Single = x + bmp.Width * Math.Cos(angle)
Dim y1 As Single = y + bmp.Width * Math.Sin(angle)
Dim x2 As Single = x - bmp.Height * Math.Sin(angle)
Dim y2 As Single = y + bmp.Height * Math.Cos(angle)

' Create the points array.
Dim points() As Point = {New Point(x, y), New Point(x1, y1), New Point(x2, _
y2)}
' Draw the rotated image
gr.DrawImage(bmp, points)
End Sub
