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

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>

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)

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 600)

ignoreChildInput : boolean

If ignoreChildInput is false it will allow this objects children to be considered as valid for Input events.

If this property is true then the children will not be considered as valid for Input events.

Note that this property isn't recursive: only immediate children are influenced, it doesn't scan further down.
