getBounds2D

public Rectangle2D getBounds2D()
Returns a high precision and more accurate bounding box of the Shape than the getBounds method. Note that there is no guarantee that the returned Rectangle2D is the smallest bounding box that encloses the Shape, only that the Shape lies entirely within the indicated Rectangle2D. The bounding box returned by this method is usually tighter than that returned by the getBounds method and never fails due to overflow problems since the return value can be an instance of the Rectangle2D that uses double precision values to store the dimensions.

Returns:
an instance of Rectangle2D that is a high-precision bounding box of the Shape.
Since:
1.2

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.

createIntersection

public abstract Rectangle2D createIntersection(Rectangle2D r)
Returns a new Rectangle2D object representing the intersection of this Rectangle2D with the specified Rectangle2D.

Parameters:

intersect

public static void intersect(Rectangle2D src1,
                             Rectangle2D src2,
                             Rectangle2D dest)
Intersects the pair of specified source Rectangle2D objects and puts the result into the specified destination Rectangle2D object. One of the source rectangles can also be the destination to avoid creating a third Rectangle2D object, but in this case the original points of this source rectangle will be overwritten by this method.

Parameters:
src1 - the first of a pair of Rectangle2D objects to be intersected with each other
src2 - the second of a pair of Rectangle2D objects to be intersected with each other
dest - the Rectangle2D that holds the results of the intersection of src1 and src2

Parameters:
r - the Rectangle2D to be combined with this Rectangle2D
Returns:
the smallest Rectangle2D containing both the specified Rectangle2D and this Rectangle2D.

union

public static void union(Rectangle2D src1,
                         Rectangle2D src2,
                         Rectangle2D dest)
Unions the pair of source Rectangle2D objects and puts the result into the specified destination Rectangle2D object. One of the source rectangles can also be the destination to avoid creating a third Rectangle2D object, but in this case the original points of this source rectangle will be overwritten by this method.

Parameters:
src1 - the first of a pair of Rectangle2D objects to be combined with each other
src2 - the second of a pair of Rectangle2D objects to be combined with each other
dest - the Rectangle2D that holds the results of the union of src1 and src2

add

public void add(double newx,
                double newy)
Adds a point, specified by the double precision arguments newx and newy, to this Rectangle2D. The resulting Rectangle2D is the smallest Rectangle2D that contains both the original Rectangle2D and the specified point.

After adding a point, a call to contains with the added point as an argument does not necessarily return true. The contains method does not return true for points on the right or bottom edges of a rectangle. Therefore, if the added point falls on the left or bottom edge of the enlarged rectangle, contains returns false for that point.

Parameters:
newx - the X coordinate of the new point
newy - the Y coordinate of the new point
Since:
1.2

add

public void add(Point2D pt)
Adds the Point2D object pt to this Rectangle2D. The resulting Rectangle2D is the smallest Rectangle2D that contains both the original Rectangle2D and the specified Point2D.

After adding a point, a call to contains with the added point as an argument does not necessarily return true. The contains method does not return true for points on the right or bottom edges of a rectangle. Therefore, if the added point falls on the left or bottom edge of the enlarged rectangle, contains returns false for that point.

Parameters:
pt - the new Point2D to add to this Rectangle2D.
Since:
1.2

add

public void add(Rectangle2D r)
Adds a Rectangle2D object to this Rectangle2D. The resulting Rectangle2D is the union of the two Rectangle2D objects.

Parameters:
r - the Rectangle2D to add to this Rectangle2D.
Since:
1.2

getPathIterator

public PathIterator getPathIterator(AffineTransform at)
Returns an iteration object that defines the boundary of this Rectangle2D. The iterator for this class is multi-threaded safe, which means that this Rectangle2D class guarantees that modifications to the geometry of this Rectangle2D 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 Rectangle2D, one segment at a time.
Since:
1.2

getPathIterator

public PathIterator getPathIterator(AffineTransform at,
                                    double flatness)
Returns an iteration object that defines the boundary of the flattened Rectangle2D. Since rectangles are already flat, the flatness parameter is ignored. The iterator for this class is multi-threaded safe, which means that this Rectangle2D class guarantees that modifications to the geometry of this Rectangle2D object do not affect any iterations of that geometry that are already in process.

Specified by:
getPathIterator in interface Shape
Overrides:
getPathIterator in class RectangularShape
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
flatness - the maximum distance that the line segments used to approximate the curved segments are allowed to deviate from any point on the original curve. Since rectangles are already flat, the flatness parameter is ignored.
Returns:
the PathIterator object that returns the geometry of the outline of this Rectangle2D, one segment at a time.
Since:
1.2

hashCode

public int hashCode()
Returns the hashcode for this Rectangle2D.

Overrides:
hashCode in class Object
Returns:
the hashcode for this Rectangle2D.

Overrides:
equals in class Object
Parameters:
obj - an Object to be compared with this Rectangle2D.
