- Rect

There are four constructors: (), (Point, Point), (Point, Size), and four numbers for (x, y, width, height). The default constructor (no argument) results in a Rect(0,0,0,0).

#### Parameters

##### Optional x: number | Point

Top-left Point, or x value.

##### Optional y: number | Point | Size

Bottom-right Point or Size or y value.

##### Optional w: number

Width to be used if x,y are specified; must be non-negative.

##### Optional h: number

Height to be used if x,y are specified; must be non-negative.

#### Returns Rect

Gets or sets the y-axis value of the bottom of the Rect. This is equal to the sum of the y value and the height.

Gets or sets the Point at the center of this Rect. Setting this property just shifts the X and Y values.

Gets or sets the horizontal center X coordinate of the Rect.

Gets or sets the vertical center Y coordinate of the Rect.

Gets or sets the height of the Rect. The value must not be negative.

Gets or sets the leftmost value of the Rect. This is the same as the X value.

Gets or sets the x- and y-axis position of the Rect as a Point.

Gets or sets the x-axis value of the right of the Rect. This is equal to the sum of the x value and the width.

Gets or sets the width and height of the Rect as a Size.

Gets or sets the topmost value of the Rect. This is the same as the Y value.

Gets or sets the width of the Rect. The value must not be negative.

Gets or sets the top-left x coordinate of the Rect.

Gets or sets the top-left y coordinate of the Rect.

#### Returns Rect

this modified Rect.

Modify this Rect so that its width and height are changed on all four sides, equally on the left and right sides, and equally on the top and bottom sides. When the arguments are negative, this operation deflates this Rect, but not beyond zero.

##### h: number

The additional height on each side, top and bottom; may be negative.

#### Returns Rect

this.

##### h: number

#### Returns Rect

this.

Determine if this Rect partly or wholly overlaps the rectangle defined by x, y, w, h.

#### Parameters

##### x: number

##### y: number

##### w: number

##### h: number

#### Returns boolean

true if there is any overlap.

Determine if a given Rect is partly or wholly inside of this Rect.

#### Parameters

##### r: Rect

Rect to test intersection with.

#### Returns boolean

true if there is an intersection.

True if this Rect has a Width and Height of zero.

#### Returns boolean

True if this Rect has X, Y, Width, and Height values that are real numbers and not infinity.

#### Returns boolean

Modify this Rect by shifting its values with the given DX and DY offsets.

#### Parameters

##### dx: number

##### dy: number

#### Returns Rect

this.

Modify this Rect so that a given Spot is at a given (x,y) point using this Rect's size. Return this rectangle for which the spot is at that point, without modifying the size.

The result is meaningless if Spot.isNoSpot is true.

#### Parameters

##### y: number

the point where the spot should be.

##### spot: Spot

a Spot; Spot.isSpot must be true.

##### Optional w: number

The Width of the Rect to include in the new bounds, defaults to zero.

This static function can be used to read in a Rect from a string that was produced by Rect.stringify.

`go.Rect.parse("1 2 3 4")`

produces the Rect`new go.Rect(1, 2, 3, 4)`

.#### Parameters

##### str: string

#### Returns Rect

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

`go.Rect.stringify(new go.Rect(1, 2, 3, 4))`

produces the string "1 2 3 4".#### Parameters

##### val: Rect

#### Returns string

A Rect describes a rectangular two-dimensional area as a top-left point (x and y values) and a size (width and height values).

Use the static functions Rect.parse and Rect.stringify to convert to and from a standard string representation that is independent of the current locale.

When an instance of this class is the value of a property of a GraphObject class or Diagram or CommandHandler or a Tool class, you should treat the object as if it were frozen or read-only -- you cannot modify its properties. This allows the property to return a value without allocating a new instance. If you need to do your own calculations with the value, call copy to make a new instance with the same values that you can modify.

Many methods modify the object's properties and then return a reference to "this" object. The only instance method to allocate a new object is the copy method. The static Rect.parse method also allocates a new object. The center, position, and size properties all allocate and return a new object.

The "Debug" implementation of this class is significantly slower than the "Release" implementation, mostly due to additional error checking.

You cannot inherit from this class.
