PyCairo – How we can get clip extents ?
In this article, we will learn how we can get clip extents using PyCairo in python. This module computes a bounding box in user coordinates covering the area inside the current clip. The current clip masks out any changes to the surface.
Pycairo is a Python module providing bindings for the cairo graphics library.This library is used for creating SVG i.e vector files in python. The easiest and quickest way to open an SVG file to view it (read only) is with a modern web browser like Chrome, Firefox, Edge, or Internet Explorer—nearly all of them should provide some sort of rendering support for the SVG format.
SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphics. It basically defines vector-based graphics in XML format. SVG graphics do NOT lose any quality if they are zoomed or resized. Every element and every attribute in SVG files can be animated.
In order to this, we will use the clip_extents() method with the Context object
Syntax : context.clip_extents()
Argument : It takes no arguments
Return : (x1, y1, x2, y2), all float
(0.0, 0.0, 700.0, 700.0)
