Hi Miklos,  hi others,

The needed calculation depends on the shape type, the handle and the 
parameter ( X, Y, Radius, Angle) of the handle. Different handles of a 
shape can need different calculations. On the other hand, different 
shapes can use the same calculation for their handles, e.g all those, 
which are correct with the current implementation.

My current idea is, to give to each calculation method, which I 
identify, a unique number. Then I use this number in a switch. And I 
have a listing, where on input of shape type, handle index and 
parameter, I get the calculation method number returned. Such listing 
would not change at run time.

Would that be OK? If yes, which are suitable C++ tools to do that and 
where should the parts be placed?

Kind regards
