PolygonDrawingUtil

Download Android Arsenal

A compact Android utility for constructing and drawing rounded regular polygons.

Consumers can specify:

  • number of sides (≥ 3);
  • center coordinates;
  • outer radius (center to vertex);
  • corner rounding radius;
  • polygon rotation;
  • (optional) fill/stroke Paint;
  • (optional) target Path instance.

Demo

This video was captured using the sample application in this repository. It provides convenient controls for exploring PolygonDrawingUtil's capabilities.

Getting Started

  1. Specify PolygonDrawingUtil as a dependency in your build.gradle file:

    dependencies {
      implementation 'com.stkent:polygondrawingutil:1.1.0'
    }
  2. Create a new PolygonDrawingUtil instance and assign it to a field in your custom view class:

    private PolygonDrawingUtil polygonDrawingUtil = new PolygonDrawingUtil();
  3. Call polygonDrawUtil.drawPolygon in your onDraw method:

    @Override
    protected void onDraw(Canvas canvas) {
      super.onDraw(canvas);
    
      polygonDrawingUtil.drawPolygon(
          canvas,
          numberOfSides,
          centerX,
          centerY,
          polygonRadius,
          cornerRadius,
          rotation,
          polygonPaint);
    }

    Alternately, you can supply your own Path instance and ask PolygonDrawingUtil to fill it with a polygon:

    Path myPath = new Path();
    
    polygonDrawingUtil.constructPolygonPath(
        myPath,
        numberOfSides,
        centerX,
        centerY,
        polygonRadius,
        cornerRadius,
        rotation);

    This allows you to perform post-processing on the Path before drawing to a Canvas.
