In previous chapters we discussed rectangles and how to draw and fill them using the draw and fill methods of the Graphics class. In this chapter we will discuss additional functionality of rectangles and regions.
We will cover the following key topics:
A rectangle has three properties: starting point, height, and width. Figure 6.1 shows these properties where the starting point is the top left.
Figure 6.1. A rectangle
Suppose you wanted to draw a rectangle from point (1, 2) with height 7 and width 6. The final rectangle would look like Figure 6.2.
Figure 6.2. A rectangle with starting point (1, 2), height 7, and width 6
The filled rectangle occupies the entire area within the range of its height and width.
