# DrawFlipImage – flipping an image on one or both axes

``' Flip an image on one or both axes. 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")'   DrawFlipImage(gr, bmp, 100, 20, False, False)'   DrawFlipImage(gr, bmp, 300, 20, True, False)'   DrawFlipImage(gr, bmp, 100, 120, False, True)'   DrawFlipImage(gr, bmp, 300, 120, True, True)'   bmp.Dispose()'   gr.Dispose()Sub DrawFlipImage(ByVal gr As Graphics, ByVal bmp As Bitmap, ByVal x As Single, _    ByVal y As Single, ByVal flipX As Boolean, ByVal flipY As Boolean)    ' Start with values of parallelogram's vertex as if no flipping occurs.
