Class Ellipse2D

java.lang.Object
  extended by java.awt.geom.RectangularShape
      extended by java.awt.geom.Ellipse2D
All Implemented Interfaces:
Shape, Cloneable
Direct Known Subclasses:
Ellipse2D.Double, Ellipse2D.Float

public abstract class Ellipse2D
extends RectangularShape

The Ellipse2D class describes an ellipse that is defined by a framing rectangle.

This class is only the abstract superclass for all objects which store a 2D ellipse. The actual storage representation of the coordinates is left to the subclass.

Since:
1.2

Nested Class Summary

Constructor Detail

Ellipse2D

protected Ellipse2D()
This is an abstract class that cannot be instantiated directly. Type-specific implementation subclasses are available for instantiation and provide a number of formats for storing the information necessary to satisfy the various accessor methods below.

Since:
1.2
See Also:
Ellipse2D.Float, Ellipse2D.Double
Method Detail

contains

public boolean contains(double x,
                        double y)
Tests if the specified coordinates are inside the boundary of the Shape.

Parameters:
x - the specified X coordinate to be tested
y - the specified Y coordinate to be tested
Returns:
true if the specified coordinates are inside the Shape boundary; false otherwise.
Since:
1.2

intersects

public boolean intersects(double x,
                          double y,
                          double w,
                          double h)
Tests if the interior of the Shape intersects the interior of a specified rectangular area. The rectangular area is considered to intersect the Shape if any point is contained in both the interior of the Shape and the specified rectangular area.

The Shape.intersects() method allows a Shape implementation to conservatively return true when:

This means that for some Shapes this method might return true even though the rectangular area does not intersect the Shape. The Area class performs more accurate computations of geometric intersection than most Shape objects and therefore can be used if a more precise answer is required.

Parameters:
x - the X coordinate of the upper-left corner of the specified rectangular area
y - the Y coordinate of the upper-left corner of the specified rectangular area
w - the width of the specified rectangular area
h - the height of the specified rectangular area
Returns:
true if the interior of the Shape and the interior of the rectangular area intersect, or are both highly likely to intersect and intersection calculations would be too expensive to perform; false otherwise.
Since:
1.2

Area

contains

public boolean contains(double x,
                        double y,
                        double w,
                        double h)
Tests if the interior of the Shape entirely contains the specified rectangular area. All coordinates that lie inside the rectangular area must lie within the Shape for the entire rectanglar area to be considered contained within the Shape.

The Shape.contains() method allows a Shape implementation to conservatively return false when:

This means that for some Shapes this method might return false even though the Shape contains the rectangular area. The Area class performs more accurate geometric computations than most Shape objects and therefore can be used if a more precise answer is required.

Parameters:
x - the X coordinate of the upper-left corner of the specified rectangular area
y - the Y coordinate of the upper-left corner of the specified rectangular area
w - the width of the specified rectangular area
h - the height of the specified rectangular area
Returns:
true if the interior of the Shape entirely contains the specified rectangular area; false otherwise or, if the Shape contains the rectangular area and the intersects method returns true and the containment calculations would be too expensive to perform.

1.2

getPathIterator

public PathIterator getPathIterator(AffineTransform at)
Returns an iteration object that defines the boundary of this Ellipse2D. The iterator for this class is multi-threaded safe, which means that this Ellipse2D class guarantees that modifications to the geometry of this Ellipse2D object do not affect any iterations of that geometry that are already in process.

Parameters:
at - an optional AffineTransform to be applied to the coordinates as they are returned in the iteration, or null if untransformed coordinates are desired
Returns:
the PathIterator object that returns the geometry of the outline of this Ellipse2D, one segment at a time.
Since:
1.2

hashCode

public int hashCode()
Returns the hashcode for this Ellipse2D.

Overrides:
hashCode in class Object
Returns:
the hashcode for this Ellipse2D.
Since:
1.6

equals

public boolean equals(Object obj)
Determines whether or not the specified Object is equal to this Ellipse2D. The specified Object is equal to this Ellipse2D if it is an instance of Ellipse2D and if its location and size are the same as this Ellipse2D.

Overrides:
equals in class Object
Parameters:
obj - an Object to be compared with this Ellipse2D.
Returns:
true if obj is an instance of Ellipse2D and has the same values; false otherwise.
Since:
1.6
