2D Shapes(Objects) Intersection Operation


Advertisements


This operation takes two or more shapes as inputs and returns the intersection area between them as shown below.

Intersection Operation

You can perform an intersection operation on the shapes using the method named intersect(). Since this is a static method, you should call it using the class name (Shape or its subclasses) as shown below.

Shape shape = Shape.intersect(circle1, circle2); 

Following is an example of the intersection operation. In here, we are drawing two circles and performing a intersection operation on them.

Example

import javafx.application.Application; 
import javafx.scene.Group; 
import javafx.scene.Scene; 
import javafx.scene.paint.Color; 
import javafx.stage.Stage; 
import javafx.scene.shape.Circle; 
import javafx.scene.shape.Shape; 
         
public class IntersectionExample extends Application { 
   @Override 
   public void start(Stage stage) { 
      //Drawing Circle1 
      Circle circle1 = new Circle();
      
      //Setting the position of the circle 
      circle1.setCenterX(250.0f); 
      circle1.setCenterY(135.0f); 
      
      //Setting the radius of the circle 
      circle1.setRadius(100.0f); 
      
      //Setting the color of the circle 
      circle1.setFill(Color.DARKSLATEBLUE);     
       
      //Drawing Circle2 
      Circle circle2 = new Circle();         
      
      //Setting the position of the circle 
      circle2.setCenterX(350.0f); 
      circle2.setCenterY(135.0f); 
      
      //Setting the radius of the circle  
      circle2.setRadius(100.0f); 
      
      //Setting the color of the circle 
      circle2.setFill(Color.BLUE);  
       
      //Performing intersection operation on the circle 
      Shape shape = Shape.intersect(circle1, circle2); 
      
      //Setting the fill color to the result 
      shape.setFill(Color.DARKSLATEBLUE); 
       
      //Creating a Group object  
      Group root = new Group(shape); 
         
      //Creating a scene object 
      Scene scene = new Scene(root, 600, 300);  
      
      //Setting title to the Stage 
      stage.setTitle("Intersection 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); 
   } 
}       

Compile and execute the saved java file from the command prompt using the following commands.

javac IntersectionExample.java
