Class Geometry

Hierarchy

  • Geometry

The Geometry class is used to define the "shape" of a Shape. A Geometry can be simple straight lines, rectangles, or ellipses. A Geometry can also be an arbitrarily complex path, consisting of a list of PathFigures.

A Geometry must not be modified once it has been used by a Shape. However, a Geometry may be shared by multiple Shapes.

It is commonplace to create Geometries using geometry path string syntax: Geometry Path Strings. However it is much more efficient to create Geometries programmatically. One way to do that is illustrated by several of the samples that evaluate JavaScript such as:

new go.Geometry()
    .add(new go.PathFigure(p.x, p.y)
         .add(new go.PathSegment(go.PathSegment.Arc, -sweep/2, sweep, 0, 0, radius+layerThickness, radius+layerThickness))
         .add(new go.PathSegment(go.PathSegment.Line, q.x, q.y))
         .add(new go.PathSegment(go.PathSegment.Arc, sweep/2, -sweep, 0, 0, radius, radius).close()));

See samples that make use of Geometries in the samples index.

Constructors

constructor

  • new Geometry(type?: EnumValue): Geometry

Properties

Read-only bounds : Rect

  • This read-only property returns a rectangle that contains all points within the Geometry. The result will always contain the origin (0, 0).

defaultStretch : EnumValue

endX : number

  • Gets or sets the ending X coordinate of the Geometry if it is of type Line, Rectangle, or Ellipse. The initial value is zero.

endY : number

  • Gets or sets the ending Y coordinate of the Geometry if it is of type Line, Rectangle, or Ellipse. The initial value is zero.

figures : List<PathFigure>

  • Gets or sets the List of PathFigures that describes the content of the path for Geometries of type Path.

spot1 : Spot

  • Gets or sets the spot an "Auto" Panel will use for the top-left corner of any panel content when the Shape.spot1 value is Spot.Default. The default value is Spot.TopLeft, at the top-left point of the bounds of the Shape.

spot2 : Spot

  • Gets or sets the spot an "Auto" Panel will use for the bottom-right corner of any panel content when the Shape.spot2 value is Spot.Default. The default value is Spot.BottomRight, at the bottom-right point of the bounds of the Shape.

startX : number

  • Gets or sets the starting X coordinate of the Geometry if it is of type Line, Rectangle, or Ellipse. The initial value is zero.

startY : number

  • Gets or sets the starting Y coordinate of the Geometry if it is of type Line, Rectangle, or Ellipse. The initial value is zero.

type : EnumValue

Methods

add

  • Add a PathFigure to the figures list.

    since

    1.5

    Parameters

    • figure: PathFigure

      a newly allocated unshared PathFigure that will become owned by this Geometry

    Returns Geometry

    this

computeBoundsWithoutOrigin

  • computeBoundsWithoutOrigin(): Rect
  • Computes the Geometry's bounds without adding an origin point, and returns those bounds as a rect. This method does not modify the Geometry or its bounds.

    since

    1.1

    Returns Rect

Virtual copy

  • Create a copy of this Geometry, with the same values and figures.

    Returns Geometry

Static fillPath

  • fillPath(str: string): string
  • Given a SVG or GoJS path string, returns a congruent path string with each pathfigure filled. For instance, "M0 0 L22 22 L33 0" would become "F M0 0 L22 22 L33 0".

    since

    1.1

    Parameters

    • str: string

    Returns string

normalize

  • Normalizes the Geometry points in place by ensuring the top-left bounds of the geometry lines up with (0, 0), returning the Point (x, y) amount it was shifted. After this method is called there will be no negative X or Y value for the Geometry's bounds, and no empty space at the top-left of the Geometry.

    since

    1.1

    Returns Point

offset

  • offset(x: number, y: number): Geometry
  • Offsets the Geometry in place by a given (x, y) amount

    since

    1.1

    Parameters

    • x: number

      The x-axis offset factor.

    • y: number

      The y-axis offset factor.

    Returns Geometry

    this

Static parse

  • parse(str: string, filled?: boolean): Geometry
  • Produce a Geometry from a string that uses an SVG-like compact path geometry syntax. The syntax accepts all SVG Path Syntax (SVG Path Syntax (w3.org)), as well as three GoJS-specific tokens. Specifically, the following tokens are allowed:

    • M (x,y)+ - Move commands
    • L (x,y)+, H (x)+, V (y)+ Lines commands, including horizontal and vertical lines
    • C (x1 y1 x2 y2 x y)+, S (x2 y2 x y)+ Cubic bezier curves
    • Q (x1 y1 x y)+, T (x y)+ Quadratic bezier curves
    • A (rx ry x-axis-rotation large-arc-flag clockwise-flag x y)+ Arcs (following SVG arc conventions)
    • Z Denotes that the previous subpath is closed

    Additionally there are some tokens specific to GoJS:

    • B (startAngle, sweepAngle, centerX, centerY, radius)+ Arcs following GoJS canvas arc conventions
    • X Used before M-commands to denote separate PathFigures instead of a subpath
    • F Denotes whether the current PathFigure is filled (true if F is present)
    • U Denotes that the PathFigure is not shadowed

    See the Introduction page on Geometry Parsing for more details.

    Parameters

    • str: string
    • Optional filled: boolean

      whether figures should be filled. If true, all PathFigures in the string will be filled regardless of the presence of an "F" command or not. If false, all PathFigures will determine their own filled state by the presence of an "F" command or not. Default is false.

    Returns Geometry

rotate

  • rotate(angle: number, x?: number, y?: number): Geometry
  • Rotates the Geometry in place by a given angle, with optional x and y values to rotate the geometry about. If no x and y value are given, (0, 0) is used as the rotation point.

    since

    1.1

    Parameters

    • angle: number

      The angle to rotate by.

    • Optional x: number

      The optional X point to rotate the geometry about. If no point is given, this value is 0.

    • Optional y: number

      The optional Y point to rotate the geometry about. If no point is given, this value is 0.

    Returns Geometry

    this

scale

  • Scales the Geometry in place by a given (x, y) scale factor.

    If you want to flip a Geometry horizontally, call geo.scale(-1, 1). If you want to flip a Geometry vertically, call geo.scale(1, -1).

    since

    1.1

    Parameters

    • x: number

      The x-axis scale factor.

    • y: number

      The y-axis scale factor.

    Returns Geometry

    this

Static stringify

  • This static function can be used to write out a Geometry as a string that can be read by Geometry.parse.

    The string produced by this method is a superset of the SVG path string rules that contains some additional GoJS-specific tokens. See the Introduction page on Geometry Parsing for more details.

    since

    1.1

    Parameters

    Returns string
