PolygonDrawingUtil

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:1.2.0"
    }
  2. Create a new PolygonDrawingUtil instance and assign it to a property in your custom view class:

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

    override fun 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:

    private val myPath = 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.
