Constructor

PIXI. Graphics

new Graphics()

The Graphics class contains methods used to draw primitive shapes such as lines, circles and rectangles to the display, and color and fill them.

Public Properties

alpha : number

The opacity of the object.

Inherited From
Source code: pixi/display/DisplayObject.js (Line 46)

blendMode : number

The blend mode to be applied to the graphic shape. Apply a value of PIXI.blendModes.NORMAL to reset the blend mode.

Default Value
  • PIXI.blendModes.NORMAL;
Source code: pixi/primitives/Graphics.js (Line 61)

boundsPadding : number

The bounds' padding used for bounds calculation.

Source code: pixi/primitives/Graphics.js (Line 96)

[readonly] children : Array.<DisplayObject>

[read-only] The array of children of this container.

Type
Inherited From
Source code: pixi/display/DisplayObjectContainer.js (Line 17)

fillAlpha : number

The alpha value used when filling the Graphics object.

Source code: pixi/primitives/Graphics.js (Line 18)

filterArea :Rectangle

The area the filter is applied to like the hitArea this is used as more of an optimisation rather than figuring out the dimensions of the displayObject each frame you can set this rectangle

Inherited From
Source code: pixi/display/DisplayObject.js (Line 164)

filters : Array.<Filter>

Sets the filters for the displayObject. IMPORTANT: This is a webGL only feature and will be ignored by the Canvas renderer.

To remove filters simply set this property to 'null'.

You cannot have a filter and a multiply blend mode active at the same time. Setting a filter will reset this objects blend mode to NORMAL.

Type
  • Array.<Filter>
Inherited From
Source code: pixi/display/DisplayObject.js (Line 307)

height : number

The height of the displayObjectContainer, setting this will actually modify the scale to achieve the value set

Inherited From
Source code: pixi/display/DisplayObjectContainer.js (Line 61)

hitArea :Rectangle | Circle | Ellipse | Polygon

This is the defined area that will pick up mouse / touch events. It is null by default. Setting it is a neat way of optimising the hitTest function that the interactionManager will use (as it will not need to hit test all the children)

Type
  • Rectangle | Circle | Ellipse | Polygon
Inherited From
Source code: pixi/display/DisplayObject.js (Line 62)

isMask : boolean

Whether this shape is being used as a mask.

Source code: pixi/primitives/Graphics.js (Line 88)

lineColor : string

The color of any lines drawn.

Default Value
  • 0
Source code: pixi/primitives/Graphics.js (Line 34)

lineWidth : number

The width (thickness) of any lines drawn.

Source code: pixi/primitives/Graphics.js (Line 26)

mask : PIXI.Graphics

Sets a mask for the displayObject. A mask is an object that limits the visibility of an object to the shape of the mask applied to it. In PIXI a regular mask must be a PIXI.Graphics object. This allows for much faster masking in canvas as it utilises shape clipping. To remove a mask, set this property to null.
