 To avoid specifying a width or height every time, you can call [[functions:HudSetVirtualSize]] once and then call [[functions:HudLeft]], [[functions:HudRight]], [[functions:HudTop]] and [[functions:HudBottom]]. To avoid specifying a width or height every time, you can call [[functions:HudSetVirtualSize]] once and then call [[functions:HudLeft]], [[functions:HudRight]], [[functions:HudTop]] and [[functions:HudBottom]].

 +===== HUD borders =====
 +Borders are the areas of the screen that are not covered by the aforementioned rectangle. Horizontal and vertical border width can be retrieved using [[functions:HudBorderXFor]] and [[functions:HudBorderYFor]].
 +
 +As with screen boundaries, you can just call [[functions:HudSetVirtualSize]] once and then use [[functions:HudBorderX]] and [[functions:HudBorderY]] without specifying the size of the HUD coordinate system every time.

 +===== Examples =====
 +
 +Put a message in the top left corner of the screen:
 +<code>
 +HudSetVirtualSize(640.0, 480.0);
 +x = HudLeft(); // This will be negative in widescreen.
 +y = 0.0;
