public Rectangle getBounds()
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.
Note that the
definition of insideness can lead to situations where points
on the defining outline of the shape
may not be considered
contained in the returned bounds
object, but only in cases
where those points are also not considered contained in the original
shape
.
If a point
is inside the shape
according to the
contains(point)
method, then
it must be inside the returned Rectangle
bounds object
according to the contains(point)
method of the bounds
. Specifically:
shape.contains(x,y)
requires bounds.contains(x,y)
If a point
is not inside the shape
, then it might
still be contained in the bounds
object:
bounds.contains(x,y)
does not imply shape.contains(x,y)
