All Implemented Interfaces:
Shape, Cloneable
Direct Known Subclasses:
Arc2D, Ellipse2D, Rectangle2D, RoundRectangle2D

public abstract class RectangularShape
extends Object
implements Shape, Cloneable

RectangularShape is the base class for a number of Shape objects whose geometry is defined by a rectangular frame. This class does not directly specify any specific geometry by itself, but merely provides manipulation methods inherited by a whole category of Shape objects. The manipulation methods provided by this class can be used to query and modify the rectangular frame, which provides a reference for the subclasses to define their geometry.

1.2

contains

public boolean contains(Point2D p)
Tests if a specified Point2D is inside the boundary of the Shape.

contains in interface Shape

p - the specified Point2D to be tested
Returns:
true if the specified Point2D is inside the boundary of the Shape; false otherwise.
Since:
1.2

intersects

public boolean intersects(Rectangle2D r)
Tests if the interior of the Shape intersects the interior of a specified Rectangle2D. The Shape.intersects() method allows a Shape implementation to conservatively return true when: This means that for some Shapes this method might return true even though the Rectangle2D does not intersect the Shape. The Area class performs more accurate computations of geometric intersection than most Shape objects and therefore can be used if a more precise answer is required.

Specified by:
intersects in interface Shape
Parameters:
r - the specified Rectangle2D
Returns:
true if the interior of the Shape and the interior of the specified Rectangle2D intersect, or are both highly likely to intersect and intersection calculations would be too expensive to perform; false otherwise.
Since:
1.2
See Also:
Shape.intersects(double, double, double, double)

contains

public boolean contains(Rectangle2D r)
Tests if the interior of the Shape entirely contains the specified Rectangle2D. The Shape.contains() method allows a Shape implementation to conservatively return false when: This means that for some Shapes this method might return false even though the Shape contains the Rectangle2D. The Area class performs more accurate geometric computations than most Shape objects and therefore can be used if a more precise answer is required.

Specified by:
contains in interface Shape
Parameters:
r - The specified Rectangle2D
Returns:
true if the interior of the Shape entirely contains the Rectangle2D; false otherwise or, if the Shape contains the Rectangle2D and the intersects method returns true and the containment calculations would be too expensive to perform.
Since:
1.2
See Also:
Shape.contains(double, double, double, double)

getBounds

public Rectangle getBounds()
Returns an integer Rectangle that completely encloses the Shape. Note that there is no guarantee that the returned Rectangle is the smallest bounding box that encloses the Shape, only that the Shape lies entirely within the indicated Rectangle. The returned Rectangle might also fail to completely enclose the Shape if the Shape overflows the limited range of the integer data type. The getBounds2D method generally returns a tighter bounding box due to its greater flexibility in representation.

Specified by:
getBounds in interface Shape
Returns:
an integer Rectangle that completely encloses the Shape.
Since:
1.2
See Also:
Shape.getBounds2D()

getPathIterator

public PathIterator getPathIterator(AffineTransform at,
                                    double flatness)
Returns an iterator object that iterates along the Shape object's boundary and provides access to a flattened view of the outline of the Shape object's geometry.

Only SEG_MOVETO, SEG_LINETO, and SEG_CLOSE point types will be returned by the iterator.

The amount of subdivision of the curved segments is controlled by the flatness parameter, which specifies the maximum distance that any point on the unflattened transformed curve can deviate from the returned flattened path segments. An optional AffineTransform can be specified so that the coordinates returned in the iteration are transformed accordingly.

Specified by:
getPathIterator in interface Shape
Parameters:
at - an optional AffineTransform to be applied to the coordinates as they are returned in the iteration, or null if untransformed coordinates are desired.
flatness - the maximum distance that the line segments used to approximate the curved segments are allowed to deviate from any point on the original curve
Returns:
a PathIterator object that provides access to the Shape object's flattened geometry.
Since:
1.2

clone

public Object clone()
Creates a new object of the same class and with the same contents as this object.

Overrides:
clone in class Object
Returns:
a clone of this instance.
Throws:
OutOfMemoryError - if there is not enough memory.
Since:
1.2
See Also:
Cloneable
