Py5Shape.set_visible()#

Sets the shape to be visible or invisible.

Examples#

def setup():
    global s
    # the file "bot.svg" must be in the data folder
    # of the current sketch to load successfully
    s = py5.load_shape("bot.svg")


def draw():
    py5.background(204)
    py5.shape(s, 10, 10, 80, 80)  # draw shape
    s.set_visible(py5.is_mouse_pressed)
    if s.is_visible() == False:  # or use: "if (!s.isVisible)"
        py5.no_fill()
        py5.rect(10, 10, 80, 80)

Description#

Sets the shape to be visible or invisible. This is determined by the value of the visible parameter.

The default visibility of a shape is usually controlled by whatever program created the SVG file. For instance, this parameter is controlled by showing or hiding the shape in the layers palette in Adobe Illustrator.

Underlying Processing method: PShape.setVisible

Signatures#

set_visible(
    visible: bool,  # ``False`` makes the shape invisible and ``True`` makes it visible
    /,
) -> None
