JavaFX | Polygon with examples
  • Last Updated : 25 Oct, 2019

Polygon is a part of the JavaFX library. Polygon class creates a polygon with the given set of x and y coordinates. Polygon class inherits the shape class.

Constructors of the class are:

  1. Polygon(): creates a empty polygon with no set of defined coordinates of points(vertices)
  2. Polygon(double points[])creates a polygon with a set of defined coordinates of points(vertices)

Commonly used methods:

methodexplanation
getPoints()Gets the coordinates of the Polygon vertices.
setFill(Paint p)sets the fill for the polygon

Below programs will illustrate the Polygon class of JavaFX:

  1. Program to create a polygon with a given set of vertices: This program creates a Polygon indicated by the name polygon. The coordinates for the vertices of the polygon are passed as arguments. The Polygon 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 polygon is attached. The group is attached to the scene. Finally, the show() method is called to display the final results.




    // Java Program to create a polygon with a given set of vertices
    import javafx.application.Application;
    import javafx.scene.Scene;
    import javafx.scene.control.Button;
    import javafx.scene.layout.*;
    import javafx.scene.paint.Color;
    import javafx.scene.shape.Polygon;
    import javafx.scene.control.*;
    import javafx.stage.Stage;
      
    import javafx.scene.Group;
    public class polygon_0 extends Application {
      
        // launch the application
        public void start(Stage stage)
        {
            // set title for the stage
            stage.setTitle("creating polygon");
      
            // coordinates of the points of polygon
            double points[] = { 10.0d, 140.0d, 30.0d, 110.0d, 40.0d,
              50.0d, 50.0d, 40.0d, 110.0d, 30.0d, 140.0d, 10.0d };
      
            // create a polygon
            Polygon polygon = new Polygon(points);
      
            // create a Group
            Group group = new Group(polygon);
      
            // 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. Program to create a polygon with a given set of vertices and specified fill: This program creates a Polygon indicated by the name polygon. The coordinates for the vertices of the polygon are passed as arguments. The function set Fill() is used to set the fill of the polygon. The Polygon 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 polygon is attached. The group is attached to the scene. Finally, the show() method is called to display the final results.

                50.0d, 50.0d, 40.0d, 110.0d, 30.0d, 140.0d, 10.0d };
      
            // create a polygon
            Polygon polygon = new Polygon(points);
      
            // set fill for the polygon
            polygon.setFill(Color.BLUE);
      
            // create a Group
            Group group = new Group(polygon);
      
            // create a scene
            Scene scene = new Scene(group, 500, 300);
      
            // set the scene
