The brush's viewbox specifies the portion of a source image or visual to be used as the tile image.

The coordinates of the brush's viewbox are relative to the source content, such that (0,0) specifies the upper-left corner of the source content. For images, dimensions specified by the brush's viewbox are expressed in the units of 1/96". The corresponding pixel coordinates in the source image are calculated as follows:

In the illustration that follows, the image on the left is an example of a source image, the image in the center shows the selected viewbox, and the image on the right shows the resulting brush.

An illustration that shows a viewbox example If the source image resolution is 96 by 96 dots per inch and image dimensions are 96 by 96 pixels, the values of fields in the viewbox parameter would be:

The preceding parameter values correspond to the source image as:

SourceLeft = 96 × 48 / 96 = 48 pixels from the left side
SourceTop = 96 × 4 / 96 = 24 pixels from the top
SourceWidth = 96 × 24 / 96 = 24 pixels wide
SourceHeight = 96 × 48 / 96 = 48 pixels high
