Py5Graphics.rect()#

Draws a rectangle to the Py5Graphics drawing surface.

Description#

Draws a rectangle to the Py5Graphics drawing surface. A rectangle is a four-sided shape with every angle at ninety degrees. By default, the first two parameters set the location of the upper-left corner, the third sets the width, and the fourth sets the height. The way these parameters are interpreted, however, may be changed with the Py5Graphics.rect_mode() function.

To draw a rounded rectangle, add a fifth parameter, which is used as the radius value for all four corners.

To use a different radius value for each corner, include eight parameters. When using eight parameters, the latter four set the radius of the arc at each corner separately, starting with the top-left corner and moving clockwise around the rectangle.

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

Underlying Processing method: PGraphics.rect
