Hello, I wanted to draw a pixel at position 1.6 and I am using method g.drawLine(x,y,x,y); but it needs ints in it how can I draw at position that includes floating points?

The coordinate system is in pixels, so how can you draw a pixel at a location that spans to pixels?

Same thing. A point maps to a pixel position on screen.

For simulating subpixel resolution, look into the *2D classes (Point2D, Line2D ...) along with Graphics2D and RenderingHints.


luck, db
There are no new questions, but there may be new answers.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
