i want to know how i can find the pixel postion of the corner points of a rectangular contour? With findcontours() and moments() i find the mass center of the contour but know i need the corner points.

Or even better is there a possibility to find the the angular orientation of the rectangle?

Please help it's important for me.

If the rectangle is not rotated, then use boundigRect.

If the rectangle may be rotated, then use minAreaRect; the corners can be computed from it.
