/drawpic Command - mIRC
< mirc‎ | commands

The /drawpic commmand draws a picture at the specified coordinates. The picture can be a graphics file, or an ico/exe/dll file.


/drawpic -ihmnoftsclgN <@win> [color] <x y [w h]> [x y w h] [N] [M] <filename>


  • -t - indicates that you have specified the [color] RGB value as a transparent color in the specified bitmap
  • -s - indicates that you have specified the first [w h] parameters to squeeze/stretch the bitmap
  • -c - indicates that the bitmap should be cached. This greatly speeds up subsequent references to this bitmap. If you specify -c and the bitmap is already in the cache, it is loaded and used from the cache, otherwise it is reloaded from the file. You can clear the entire cache with /drawpic -c
  • -l - tiles the picture
  • -m - changes the stretch mode quality when the picture is resized
  • -o - indicates that you have specified the [N] value before the filename, representing the index of the icon in the file, or the Nth frame in a GIF file.
  • -f - used with -o, indicate that you want to use the Mth frame in the Nth icon, eg /drawpic -of [N] [M]
  • -gN - attempts to load the large icon in an icon file, if none exists, it loads the small icon. If N is specified, N = 0 loads the small icon, N = 1 loads the large icon, and N = 2 loads the actual icon
  • -i - draws in inverse color mode. You can find the final color based on the two color by using $xor($xor(currentcolor,16777215),drawncolor). Drawing the same color gives white and may be used to create transparency effect.
  • -h - highlights the windows icon if it is minimized
  • -n - prevents the display from being updated immediately


  • <@win> - the window's name
  • [color] - if -t is used, the RGB color used for transparency
  • <x y [w h]> - the x y coordinates where you want to draw, if -s is used, [w h] is the width/height that will be used to squeeze/stretch the bitmap
  • [x y w h] - the area in the picture to be drawn
  • [N] - if -o is used, the index number of the icon in the file
  • [M] - if -fo is used, the index number of the frame in the icon.
  • <filename> - the filename for the picture
