The /drawcopy command copies part of a picture to a different position in the same window or to another window.


/drawcopy -ihmnt <@win> [color] <x y w h> <@win> <x y [w h]>


  • -t - indicates that you have specified the [color] RGB value as a transparent color in the source bitmap
  • -m - changes the stretch mode quality when the picture is resized
  • -i - draws in inverse mode
  • -h - highlights the windows icon if it is minimized
  • -n - prevents the display from being updated immediately
  • -r - indicates that the color is in RGB format


  • <@win> - the window's name to copy from
  • [color] - if -t is used, the RGB color used for transparency
  • <x y w h> - portion to copy
  • <@win> - the window's name to copy to
  • <x y [w h]> - the coordinate where to draw, if [w h] are specified, the picture is squeed/stretched to fit, they can be negative value to get a mirror effect:

-Assume @win has a bitmap area of 16*16 pixels containing this picture: File:drawpic&copy negative -If you copy the whole @win over @win1 at coordinate 50,50 you would get: drawcopy @win 0 0 16 16 @win1 50 50 16 16
