## QuadCurve2D Example

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

*AWTGraphicsDemo*

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) { QuadCurve2D shape = new QuadCurve2D.Double(); shape.setCurve(250D,250D,100D,100D,200D,150D); Graphics2D g2 = (Graphics2D) g; g2.draw (shape); Font font = new Font("Serif", Font.PLAIN, 24); g2.setFont(font); g.drawString("Welcome to TutorialsPoint", 50, 70); g2.drawString("QuadCurve2D.Curve", 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
