    Unhappy Intersection of two Rectangles

    Hey, Im struck trying to write some code.
    Im trying to use the Intersection method , to print out the dimensions + position of the new rectangle(r3) that the intersection of two rectangles (randRectangle and box) makes. (hope that makes sense).
    I already know how to create my two rectangles but I do not know how to do the intersection part and i must only use: import java.awt.Rectangle;

    randRectangle and box are my two created rectangles

    This is what i have so far...
    Java Code:
        Rectangle r3 = randRectangle.intersection(box);
        System.out.println(r3.toString());


    Thanks

    Read the API documentation for the Rectangle class; you're almost there.

    kind regards,

    Ok thanks Ill have a look now!
    Also I tried to do an If, else statement for if there there is intersection or not but I wasn't sure what to write as I've only ever used booleans for them. Any pointers?

    It's all in the API documentation for the Rectangle class; read about it in the isEmpty() method (two Rectangles that don't intersect return an empty Rectangle).
