Explain the smooth property of 2D shapes in JavaFX

JavaObject Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The smooth property specifies whether antialiasing hints are used or not. You can set the value to this property using the setSmooth() method of the javafx.scene.shape.Shape class.

This method accepts a boolean value and if you pass true the edges of the shape will be smoothened.

Example

import javafx.application.Application;
import javafx.scene.Group;
import javafx.scene.Scene;
import javafx.scene.paint.Color;
import javafx.scene.shape.Polygon;
import javafx.scene.shape.StrokeLineJoin;
import javafx.scene.text.Font;
import javafx.scene.text.FontPosture;
import javafx.scene.text.FontWeight;
import javafx.scene.text.Text;
import javafx.stage.Stage;
public class SmoothExample extends Application {
   public void start(Stage stage) {
      Font font = Font.font("verdana", FontWeight.BOLD, FontPosture.REGULAR, 12);
      Text label2 = new Text("Smooth: true");
      label2.setFont(font);
      label2.setX(80.0);
      label2.setY(250.0);
      Polygon shape1 = new Polygon(100.0, 75.0, 50.0, 200.0, 200.0, 200.0);
      shape1.setStroke(Color.BLUE);
      shape1.setStrokeWidth(20);
      shape1.setStrokeLineJoin(StrokeLineJoin.MITER);
      shape1.setSmooth(true);
      Text label3 = new Text("Smooth: false");
      label3.setFont(font);
      label3.setX(370.0);
      label3.setY(250.0);
      Polygon shape2 = new Polygon(450.0, 75.0, 350.0, 200.0, 500.0, 200.0);
      shape2.setStroke(Color.BLUE);
      shape2.setStrokeWidth(20.0);
      shape2.setStrokeLineJoin(StrokeLineJoin.MITER);
      shape2.setSmooth(false);
      //Creating a Group object
      Group root = new Group(label2, label3, shape1, shape2);
      //Creating a scene object
      Scene scene = new Scene(root, 595, 310);
      //Setting title to the Stage
      stage.setTitle("Smooth Example");
      //Adding scene to the stage
      stage.setScene(scene);
      //Displaying the contents of the stage
      stage.show();
   }
   public static void main(String args[]){
      launch(args);
   }
}
