Sets the style for rendering line endings in a Py5Shape object.

Examples#

example picture for set_stroke_cap()
 1def setup():
 2    s = py5.create_shape()
 3    s.begin_shape()
 4    s.stroke_weight(12.0)
 5    s.vertex(20, 0)

10    s.set_stroke_cap(py5.SQUARE)
11    py5.shape(s, 0, 50)
12    s.set_stroke_cap(py5.PROJECT)
13    py5.shape(s, 0, 70)

Description#

Sets the style for rendering line endings in a Py5Shape object. These ends are either squared, extended, or rounded, each of which specified with the corresponding parameters: SQUARE, PROJECT, and ROUND. The default cap is ROUND.

This method differs from Py5Shape.stroke_cap() in that it is only to be used outside the Py5Shape.begin_shape() and Py5Shape.end_shape() methods.

Underlying Processing method: PShape.setStrokeCap

Syntax#

set_stroke_cap(cap: int, /) -> None

Parameters#

  • cap: int - either SQUARE, PROJECT, or ROUND
