# How to consider only half of the image element?

• Hi i have following qml code with pole, wheel and root elements. I want to add half of the pole to the right hand side of the wheel. How can i break the pole element into half and keep it in the animation? It would be nice if someone guides and I am a beginner.

``````import QtQuick 2.6
import QtQuick.Window 2.2
Window {
visible: true!!
width: root.width
height: root.height
property real halfPoleHeight: pole.height/2
MouseArea{
anchors.fill: parent
onClicked: wheel.rotation += 360
}
Image {
id: root
source: "images/background.png"
Image {
id: pole
//anchors.centerIn: parent
anchors.horizontalCenter: parent.horizontalCenter
anchors.bottom: parent.bottom
source: "images/pole.png"
}
Image {
id: wheel
Behavior on rotation {
NumberAnimation {
duration: 250
}
}
anchors.centerIn: parent
source: "images/pinwheel.png"
}
}
}

You could use `anchors.horizontalCenterOffset` to the `pole` image to slightly offset its position.

P.S. No need to embed the `pole` and `wheel` images inside the `root` image. Just declare them alongside each other.

• @Diracsbracket Yeah. I tried, i can have two poles now, by using anchors.horizontalCenterOffset to the pole image to slightly offset its position. But my question is if i want to break the pole into two poles or reduce the length, can i use radius: property for my pole?

• @JennyAug13
Why don't you draw the pole yourself rather than to use an off-centered .png image with non-symmetric left and right transparent margins?
