One can do the modification of the graphic attributes so that for performing these graphic primitives in graphic 2D context.
Transform attribute is defined by the instance of class AffineTransform. Parallel lines are found to be parallel no matter if the transformation has been done in affine transformation.
Graphics 2D class provides number of methods to change the transform attribute. Graphic2Dtransform can be changed by calling transform, at new AffineTransform.
For construction of new transforms, these factory methods are used.
For transformation, these methods are used:
- rotate —Angle of rotation is specified, in radian.
- scale —scaling factor is specified in the x & y direction
- shear —shearing facto is specified in the x & y direction
- translate —translation offset is specified in the x & y direction
