def setup():
    global s  # the Py5Shape object
    s = py5.create_shape()
    with s.begin_closed_shape():
        s.stroke_weight(5)
        s.no_fill()
        s.vertex(0, 0)
        s.vertex(0, 50)
        s.vertex(50, 0)


def draw():
    py5.shape(s, 25, 25)

Description

This method is used to start a custom closed shape created with the create_shape() function. It’s always and only used with create_shape().

This method should only be used as a context manager, as shown in the example. When used as a context manager, this will ensure that Py5Shape.end_shape() always gets called, just like when using Py5Shape.begin_shape() as a context manager. The difference is that when exiting, the parameter CLOSE will be passed to Py5Shape.end_shape(), connecting the last vertex to the first. This will close the shape. If this method were to be used not as a context manager, it won’t be able to close the shape by making the call to Py5Shape.end_shape().

Underlying Java method: PShape.beginShape

Syntax

begin_closed_shape() -> None
begin_closed_shape(kind: int, /) -> None

Parameters

  • kind: int - Either POINTS, LINES, TRIANGLES, TRIANGLE_FAN, TRIANGLE_STRIP, QUADS, or QUAD_STRIP
