Class Overview

Defines a generic graphical "shape." Any Shape can be drawn to a Canvas with its own draw() method, but more graphical control is available if you instead pass it to a ShapeDrawable.

Public Constructors

public Shape ()

Added in API level 1

Public Methods

public Shape clone ()

Added in API level 1

Creates and returns a copy of this Object. The default implementation returns a so-called "shallow" copy: It creates a new instance of the same class and then copies the field values (including object references) from this instance to the new instance. A "deep" copy, in contrast, would also recursively clone nested objects. A subclass that needs to implement this kind of cloning should call super.clone() to create the new instance and then create deep copies of the nested, mutable objects.

Returns
Shape a copy of this object.
Throws
CloneNotSupportedException

public abstract void draw (Canvas canvas, Paint paint)

Added in API level 1

Draw this shape into the provided Canvas, with the provided Paint. Before calling this, you must call resize(float, float).

Parameters
canvas the Canvas within which this shape should be drawn
paint the Paint object that defines this shape's characteristics

public final float getHeight ()

Added in API level 1

Returns the height of the Shape.

Returns
float

public void getOutline (Outline outline)

Added in API level 21

Compute the Outline of the shape and return it in the supplied Outline parameter. The default implementation does nothing and outline is not changed.

Parameters
outline The Outline to be populated with the result. Should not be null.

public final float getWidth ()

Added in API level 1

Returns the width of the Shape.

Returns
float

public boolean hasAlpha ()

Added in API level 1

Checks whether the Shape is opaque. Default impl returns true. Override if your subclass can be opaque.

Returns
boolean true if any part of the drawable is not opaque.

public final void resize (float width, float height)

Added in API level 1

Resizes the dimensions of this shape. Must be called before draw(Canvas, Paint).

Parameters
width the width of the shape (in pixels)
height the height of the shape (in pixels)

Protected Methods

protected void onResize (float width, float height)

Added in API level 1

Callback method called when resize(float, float) is executed.

Parameters
width the new width of the Shape
height the new height of the Shape
