Py5Graphics.stroke_weight()#

Sets the width of the stroke used for lines, points, and the border around shapes.

Description#

Sets the width of the stroke used for lines, points, and the border around shapes. All widths are set in units of pixels.

Using Py5Graphics.point() with strokeWeight(1) or smaller may draw nothing to the Py5Graphics drawing surface, depending on the graphics settings of the computer. Workarounds include setting the pixel using the Py5Graphics.pixels[] or Py5Graphics.np_pixels[] arrays or drawing the point using either Py5Graphics.circle() or Py5Graphics.square().

This method is the same as stroke_weight() but linked to a Py5Graphics object. To see example code for how it can be used, see stroke_weight().

Underlying Processing method: PGraphics.strokeWeight

Syntax#

stroke_weight(weight: float, /) -> None

Parameters#

  • weight: float - the weight (in pixels) of the stroke
