JavaFX | Ellipse with examples
  • Last Updated : 31 Oct, 2019

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:

methodexplanation
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.






    // Java program to create ellipse by passing the
    // coordinates of the center and radius as arguments in constructor
    import javafx.application.Application;
    import javafx.scene.Scene;
    import javafx.scene.control.Button;
    import javafx.scene.layout.*;
    import javafx.event.ActionEvent;
    import javafx.scene.shape.Ellipse;
    import javafx.scene.control.*;
    import javafx.stage.Stage;
    import javafx.scene.Group;
    public class ellipse_0 extends Application {
      
        // launch the application
        public void start(Stage stage)
        {
            // set title for the stage
            stage.setTitle("creating ellipse");
      
            // create a ellipse
            Ellipse ellipse = new Ellipse(200.0f, 120.0f, 150.0f, 80.f);
      
            // create a Group
            Group group = new Group(ellipse);
      
            // create a scene
            Scene scene = new Scene(group, 500, 300);
      
            // set the scene
            stage.setScene(scene);
      
            stage.show();
        }
      
        public static void main(String args[])
        {
            // launch the application
            launch(args);
        }
    }

    Output:

  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.

    // coordinates of the center and radius using
    // functions setCenterX(), setCenterY() etc.

    import javafx.scene.shape.Ellipse;
    import javafx.scene.control.*;
    import javafx.stage.Stage;
    import javafx.scene.Group;
    public class ellipse_1 extends Application {
      
        // launch the application
        public void start(Stage stage)
        {
            // set title for the stage
            stage.setTitle("creating ellipse");
      
            // create a ellipse
            Ellipse ellipse = new Ellipse();
      
            // set center
            ellipse.setCenterX(150.0f);
            ellipse.setCenterY(120.0f);
      
            // set radius
            ellipse.setRadiusX(130.0f);
            ellipse.setRadiusY(100.0f);
      
            // create a Group
            Group group = new Group(ellipse);
      
            // create a scene
            Scene scene = new Scene(group, 500, 300);
      
            // set the scene
            stage.setScene(scene);
      
            stage.show();
        }
      
        public static void main(String args[])
        {
            // launch the application
            launch(args);
        }
    }
