p5.js | quad() Function
  • Last Updated : 12 Apr, 2019

The quad() function is an inbuilt function in p5.js which is used to draw a quadrilateral. A quadrilateral is a four-sided polygon. It function creates a shape similar to rectangle, but the angles between two edges are not constrained to 90 degrees.

Syntax:

quad(x1, y1, x2, y2, x3, y3, x4, y4)

or

quad(x1, y1, z1, x2, y2, z2, x3, y3, z3, x4, y4, z4)

Parameters: This function accepts twelve parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • x1: This parameter takes the x-coordinate of the first point.
  • y1: This parameter takes the y-coordinate of the first point.
  • z1: This parameter takes the z-coordinate of the first point.
  • x2: This parameter takes the x-coordinate of the second point.
  • y2: This parameter takes the y-coordinate of the second point.
  • z2: This parameter takes the z-coordinate of the second point.
  • x3: This parameter takes the x-coordinate of the third point.
  • y3: This parameter takes the y-coordinate of the third point.
  • z3: This parameter takes the z-coordinate of the third point.
  • x4: This parameter takes the z-coordinate of the fourth point.
  • y4: This parameter takes the z-coordinate of the fourth point.
  • z4: This parameter takes the z-coordinate of the fourth point.

Below programs illustrates the quad() function in P5.js:



Example 1: This example uses quad() function to create a polygon without using z-coordinate.

    // Set the background color
    background(220);
      
    noStroke();
      
    // Set the fill color
    fill('green');
      
    // x1, y1 = 38, 31; x2, y2 = 300, 20;
    // x3, y3 = 100, 63; x4, y4 = 130, 250
    quad(38, 31, 300, 20, 100, 63, 130, 250); 
}
