JavaFX | Circle with examples

Circle class is a part of the JavaFX library. Circle class creates a circle with a specified x and y position for the center of the circle, the specified radius for the circle and a specified fill.
The radius and the center of the circles are measured in pixels.

Constructors of the class are:

  1. Circle(): creates a empty instance of circle
  2. Circle(double r): creates a circle with a specified radius
  3. Circle(double X, double Y, double r): creates a circle with given X and y coordinates of the center of the circle, and the radius.
  4. Circle(double r, paint f) creates a circle with a specified radius and fill
  5. Circle(double X, double Y, double r, Paint f): creates a circle with given X and y coordinates of the center of the circle, and the radius and also a specified fill .

Commonly used methods:



method explanantion
getCenterX() returns the x coordinate of the center of the circle
getCenterX() returns the y coordinate of the center of the circle
getRadius() returns the radius of the circle
setCenterX(double c) sets the x coordinate of the center of the circle
setCenterY(double c) sets the y coordinate of the center of the circle
setRadius(double c) sets the radius of the circle
setFill(Paint p) sets the fill for the circle

Below programs illustrate the use of the Circle class:

  1. Java program to create a circle by passing the coordinates of the center and radius as arguments in constructor: This program creates a Circle indicated by the name circle( the coordinates of the center and the radius is passed as arguments). The Circle will be created inside a scene, which in turn will be hosted inside a stage. The function setTitle() is used to provide title to the stage. Then a Group is created, and the circle is attached. The group is attached to the scene. Finally, the show() method is called to display the final results.
