rright(
RECTANGLE
)

The rright( function extracts the position of the right edge of a rectangle (see rectangle(, Graphic Coordinates).

Parameters

This function has one parameter:

rectangle – is the rectangle you want to get information about.

Description

This function returns the position of the right edge of the rectangle (in points). This position is expressed as a floating point number.

Error Messages

rright( function requires a binary parameter. – The input to this function must be a binary value generated by the rectangle( function (or any other function that generates a binary rectangle value)
