Py5Graphics.line()#

Draws a line (a direct path between two points) to the Py5Graphics drawing surface.

Description#

Draws a line (a direct path between two points) to the Py5Graphics drawing surface. The version of line() with four parameters draws the line in 2D. To color a line, use the Py5Graphics.stroke() function. A line cannot be filled, therefore the Py5Graphics.fill() function will not affect the color of a line. 2D lines are drawn with a width of one pixel by default, but this can be changed with the Py5Graphics.stroke_weight() function. The version with six parameters allows the line to be placed anywhere within XYZ space. Drawing this shape in 3D with the z parameter requires the P3D renderer.

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

Underlying Processing method: PGraphics.line
