Examples#

example picture for find_child()
def setup():
    states = py5.load_shape("us_map.svg")
    new_york = states.get_child("NY")
    ohio = new_york.find_child("OH")
    ohio.disable_style()

    py5.background(192)
    py5.scale(0.1)
    py5.translate(25, 225)
    py5.shape(states, 0, 0)
    py5.fill(255, 0, 0)
    py5.shape(ohio, 0, 0)

Description#

Find a target Py5Shape object from anywhere within a Py5Shape object that is defined as a GROUP. This is similar to Py5Shape.get_child() in that it locates a child Py5Shape object, except that it can start the search from another child shape instead of the parent.

Underlying Processing method: PShape.findChild

Signatures#

find_child(
    target: str,  # name of child object
