Ellipse

function Ellipse(const rec: TRect; steps: integer = 0): TPathD; overload;

function Ellipse(const rec: TRectD; steps: integer = 0): TPathD; overload;

function Ellipse(const rec: TRectD; pendingScale: double): TPathD; overload;


Note: the optional pendingScale parameter indicates likely future scaling of the returned path. This allows the function to anticipate an appropriate degree of precision for curve generation. (Inadequate precision will degrade a curve into an obvious series of straight edges, while excessive precision will degrade rendering performance.
