JavaFX | Ellipse with examples

Ellipse class is a part of the JavaFX library. The ellipse class creates an ellipse on providing the center and X and Y radius. Ellipse class extends Shape class.

Constructors of the class are:

  1. Ellipse(): creates an empty instance of ellipse
  2. Ellipse(double X, double Y): creates a ellipse with the given x and y radius
  3. Ellipse(double x, double y, double X, double Y): creates a ellipse with given center and radius

Commonly used methods:



method explanantion
getCenterX() returns the X coordinate of the center of ellipse
getCenterY() returns the Y coordinate of the center of ellipse
getRadiusX() returns the value of X Radius(along major axis)
getRadiusY() returns the value of Y Radius(along minor axis)
setCenterX(double v) sets the X coordinate of the center of ellipse
setCenterY(double v) sets the Y coordinate of the center of ellipse
setRadiusX(double v) returns the value of X Radius(along major axis)
setRadiusY(double v) returns the value of Y Radius(along minor axis)
setFill(Color c) sets the fill of the ellipse

Below programs will illustrate the use of ellipse class:

  1. Java program to create ellipse by passing the coordinates of the center and radius as arguments in constructor:

    This program creates a Ellipse indicated by the name ellipse( the coordinates of the center and the radius is passed as arguments). The Ellipse 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 ellipse is attached. The group is attached to the scene. Finally, the show() method is called to display the final results.

  2. Java program to create ellipse by passing the coordinates of the center and radius using functions setCenterX(), setCenterY() etc.:

    This program creates a Ellipse indicated by the name ellipse.The coordinates of the center and the radius will be set using functions setCenterX(), setCenterY(), setRadiusX(), and setRadiusY() functions. The Ellipse 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 ellipse is attached.The group is attached to the scene. Finally, the show() method is called to display the final results.
