JavaFX | ImagePattern Class

  • Last Updated : 19 Sep, 2018

ImagePattern is a part of JavaFX. This class is used to fills a shape with an image pattern. A user may specify the anchor rectangle, which defines the position, width, and height of the image relative to the upper left corner of the shape. If the shape extends out of the anchor rectangle, the image is tiled.

Constructors of the class:

  1. ImagePattern(Image i): Creates a new instance of ImagePattern with the specified image.
  2. ImagePattern(Image i, double x, double y, double width, double height, boolean prop): Creates an image with specified x, y coordinate, a defined width and height and whether it is proportional or not.

Commonly Used Methods:

MethodExplanation
getHeight()Returns the height of the image pattern.
getWidth()Returns the width of image pattern.
getImage()Returns the image of the image pattern.
getX()Returns the X origin of the anchor rectangle.
getY()Returns the Y origin of the anchor rectangle.
isOpaque()Returns whether the paint is completely opaque or not.
isProportional()Returns whether the start and end locations is completely proportional or not.

Below programs illustrate the use of ImagePattern Class:

  1. Java Program to create a ImagePattern from a image and apply it to the rectangle: In this program we will create a ImagePattern named image_pattern from a image. Import the image using a FileInputStream. Add this image_pattern to the rectangle using the setFill() function. Create a VBox and add the rectangle to the vbox. Add the vbox to the scene and add the scene to the stage. Call the show() function to display the results.




    // Java Program to create a ImagePattern from
    // a image and apply it to the rectangle
    import javafx.application.Application;
    import javafx.scene.Scene;
    import javafx.scene.control.*;
    import javafx.scene.layout.*;
    import javafx.event.ActionEvent;
    import javafx.event.EventHandler;
    import javafx.scene.control.Label;
    import javafx.stage.Stage;
    import javafx.scene.image.*;
    import java.io.*;
    import javafx.scene.paint.*;
    import javafx.scene.shape.*;
      
    public class ImagePattern_1 extends Application {
      
        // launch the application
        public void start(Stage s) throws Exception
        {
      
            // set title for the stage
            s.setTitle("Creating ImagePattern");
      
            // create a input stream
            FileInputStream input = new FileInputStream("D:\\GFG.png");
      
            // create a image
            Image image = new Image(input);
      
            // create ImagePattern
            ImagePattern image_pattern = new ImagePattern(image);
      
            // create a Rectangle
            Rectangle rect = new Rectangle(100, 100, 200, 150);
      
            // set fill for rectangle
            rect.setFill(image_pattern);
      
            // create a VBox
            VBox vbox = new VBox(rect);
      
            // create a scene
            Scene sc = new Scene(vbox, 200, 200);
      
            // set the scene
            s.setScene(sc);
      
            s.show();
        }
      
        public static void main(String args[])
        {
      
            // launch the application
            launch(args);
        }
    }

Java Program to create an ImagePattern form an image, set the x, y coordinate, its height and width, and whether it is proportional or not and apply it to the rectangle: In this program we will create an ImagePattern named image_pattern from an image. Import the image using a FileInputStream. Specify the x, y coordinates of the anchor rectangle, its height, width and whether it is proportional or not bypassing the values as arguments of the constructor of ImagePattern. Add this image_pattern to the rectangle using the setFill() function. Create a VBox and add the rectangle to vbox. Add the vbox to the scene and add the scene to the stage. Call the show() function to display the results.
