Gideros Studio has a simple way of creating graphics in the way of Shapes.
To create a shape, you draw it using line commands. Once created, the shape can be rotated, scaled, ...
local myShape = Shape.new() myShape:setLineStyle(2) myShape:setFillStyle(Shape.SOLID, 0x9900ff) myShape:beginPath() myShape:moveTo(1,1) myShape:lineTo(100,1) myShape:lineTo(100,100) myShape:lineTo(1,100) myShape:lineTo(1,1) myShape:endPath() stage:addChild(myShape)
This will draw a purple rectangle:
Manipulating your shape
myShape:setPosition(75,0) myShape:setRotation(45) myShape:setAlpha(0.5)
There are a few options for setFillStyle:
Shape.NONE = No fill
Shape.SOLID = Solid color fill
Shape.TEXTURE = Fill your shape with the content of a PNG
This will set the shape as solid with a blue color filling and a transparency of 0.25:
setFillStyle(Shape.SOLID, 0x0000ff, 0.25)
There are also a few options for setLineStyle:
