Py5Graphics.background()#

The background() function sets the color used for the background of the Py5Graphics object.

Description#

The background() function sets the color used for the background of the Py5Graphics object. The default background is 100% transparent.

An image can also be used as the background, although the image’s width and height must match that of the Py5Graphics object. Images used with background() will ignore the current Py5Graphics.tint() setting. To resize an image to the size of the Py5Graphics object, use image.resize(width, height).

This method is the same as background() but linked to a Py5Graphics object. To see example code for how it can be used, see background().

Underlying Processing method: PGraphics.background
