AWT Arc2D Class

Introduction

The Arc2D class is the superclass for all objects that store a 2D arc defined by a framing rectangle, start angle, angular extent (length of the arc), and a closure type (OPEN, CHORD, or PIE).

Class declaration

Following is the declaration for java.awt.Arc2D class:

public abstract class Arc2D
   extends RectangularShape

Field

Following are the fields for java.awt.geom.Arc2D class:

  • static int CHORD -- The closure type for an arc closed by drawing a straight line segment from the start of the arc segment to the end of the arc segment.

  • static int OPEN -- The closure type for an open arc with no path segments connecting the two ends of the arc segment.

  • static int PIE -- The closure type for an arc closed by drawing straight line segments from the start of the arc segment to the center of the full ellipse and from that point to the end of the arc segment.

Arc2D Example

Create the following java program using any editor of your choice in say D:/ > AWT > com > tutorialspoint > gui >

AWTGraphicsDemo.java
package com.tutorialspoint.gui;

import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import java.awt.geom.*;

public class AWTGraphicsDemo extends Frame {
       
   public AWTGraphicsDemo(){
      super("Java AWT Examples");
      prepareGUI();
   }

   public static void main(String[] args){
      AWTGraphicsDemo  awtGraphicsDemo = new AWTGraphicsDemo();  
      awtGraphicsDemo.setVisible(true);
   }

   private void prepareGUI(){
      setSize(400,400);
      addWindowListener(new WindowAdapter() {
         public void windowClosing(WindowEvent windowEvent){
            System.exit(0);
         }        
      }); 
   }    

   @Override
   public void paint(Graphics g) {
      Arc2D.Float arc = new Arc2D.Float(Arc2D.PIE);
      arc.setFrame(70, 200, 150, 150);
      arc.setAngleStart(0);
      arc.setAngleExtent(145);
      Graphics2D g2 = (Graphics2D) g; 
      g2.setColor(Color.gray);
      g2.draw(arc);
      g2.setColor(Color.red);
      g2.fill(arc);
      g2.setColor(Color.black);
      Font font = new Font("Serif", Font.PLAIN, 24);
      g2.setFont(font);
      g.drawString("Welcome to TutorialsPoint", 50, 70);
      g2.drawString("Arc2D.PIE", 100, 120); 
   }
}

Compile the program using command prompt. Go to D:/ > AWT and type the following command.

D:\AWT>javac com\tutorialspoint\gui\AwtGraphicsDemo.java

If no error comes that means compilation is successful. Run the program using following command.

D:\AWT>java com.tutorialspoint.gui.AwtGraphicsDemo

Verify the following output
