Paint controls options applied when drawing and measuring. Paint collects all options outside of the Canvas_Clip and Canvas_Matrix.

Various options apply to text, strokes and fills, and images.

Some options may not be implemented on all platforms; in these cases, setting the option has no effect. Some options are conveniences that duplicate Canvas functionality; for instance, text size is identical to matrix scale.

Paint options are rarely exclusive; each option modifies a stage of the drawing pipeline and multiple pipeline stages may be affected by a single Paint.

Paint collects effects and filters that describe single-pass and multiple-pass algorithms that alter the drawing geometry, color, and transparency. For instance, Paint does not directly implement dashing or blur, but contains the objects that do so.

The objects contained by Paint are opaque, and cannot be edited outside of the Paint to affect it. The implementation is free to defer computations associated with the Paint, or ignore them altogether. For instance, some GPU implementations draw all Path geometries with Anti_Aliasing, regardless of how SkPaint::kAntiAlias_Flag is set in Paint.

Paint describes a single color, a single font, a single image quality, and so on. Multiple colors are drawn either by using multiple paints or with objects like Shader attached to Paint.

Return Value

default initialized Paint

Example


SkPaint(const SkPaint& paint)

Makes a shallow copy of SkPaint. SkTypeface, SkPathEffect, SkShader, SkMaskFilter, SkColorFilter, SkDrawLooper, and SkImageFilter are shared between the original paint and the copy. Objects containing SkRefCnt increment their references by one.

The referenced objects SkPathEffect, SkShader, SkMaskFilter, SkColorFilter, SkDrawLooper, and SkImageFilter cannot be modified after they are created. This prevents objects with SkRefCnt from being modified once SkPaint refers to them.

Parameters

paint original to copy

Return Value

shallow copy of paint

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ SK_ColorRED == paint1.getColor() SK_ColorBLUE == paint2.getColor() ~~~~


SkPaint(SkPaint&& paint)

Implements a move constructor to avoid increasing the reference counts of objects referenced by the paint.

After the call, paint is undefined, and can be safely destructed.

Parameters

paint original to move

Return Value

content of paint

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ path effect unique: true ~~~~


void reset()

Sets all SkPaint contents to their initial values. This is equivalent to replacing SkPaint with the result of SkPaint().

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ paint1 == paint2 ~~~~


~SkPaint()

Decreases SkPaint SkRefCnt of owned objects: SkTypeface, SkPathEffect, SkShader, SkMaskFilter, SkColorFilter, SkDrawLooper, and SkImageFilter. If the objects containing SkRefCnt go to zero, they are deleted.


SkPaint& operator=(const SkPaint& paint)

Makes a shallow copy of SkPaint. SkTypeface, SkPathEffect, SkShader, SkMaskFilter, SkColorFilter, SkDrawLooper, and SkImageFilter are shared between the original paint and the copy. Objects containing SkRefCnt in the prior destination are decreased by one, and the referenced objects are deleted if the resulting count is zero. Objects containing SkRefCnt in the parameter paint are increased by one. paint is unmodified.

Parameters

paint original to copy

Return Value

content of paint

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ SK_ColorRED == paint1.getColor() SK_ColorRED == paint2.getColor() ~~~~


SkPaint& operator=(SkPaint&& paint)

Moves the paint to avoid increasing the reference counts of objects referenced by the paint parameter. Objects containing SkRefCnt in the prior destination are decreased by one; those objects are deleted if the resulting count is zero.

After the call, paint is undefined, and can be safely destructed.

Parameters

paint original to move

Return Value

content of paint

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ SK_ColorRED == paint2.getColor() ~~~~


bool operator==(const SkPaint& a, const SkPaint& b)

Compares a and b, and returns true if a and b are equivalent. May return false if SkTypeface, SkPathEffect, SkShader, SkMaskFilter, SkColorFilter, SkDrawLooper, or SkImageFilter have identical contents but different pointers.

Parameters

a SkPaint to compare
b SkPaint to compare

Return Value

true if SkPaint pair are equivalent

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ paint1 == paint2 paint1 != paint2 ~~~~

See Also

operator!=(const SkPaint& a, const SkPaint& b)


bool operator!=(const SkPaint& a, const SkPaint& b)

Compares a and b, and returns true if a and b are not equivalent. May return true if SkTypeface, SkPathEffect, SkShader, SkMaskFilter, SkColorFilter, SkDrawLooper, or SkImageFilter have identical contents but different pointers.

Parameters

a SkPaint to compare
b SkPaint to compare

Return Value

true if SkPaint pair are not equivalent

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ paint1 == paint2 paint1 == paint2 ~~~~

See Also

operator==(const SkPaint& a, const SkPaint& b)


uint32_t getHash()const

Returns a hash generated from SkPaint values and pointers. Identical hashes guarantee that the paints are equivalent, but differing hashes do not guarantee that the paints have differing contents.

If operator==(const SkPaint& a, const SkPaint& b) returns true for two paints, their hashes are also equal.

The hash returned is platform and implementation specific.

Return Value

a shallow hash

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ paint1 == paint2 paint1.getHash() == paint2.getHash() ~~~~


void setHinting(SkFontHinting hintingLevel)

SkFontHinting::kNormal, SkFontHinting::kFull

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ paint1 == paint2 ~~~~


SkFontHinting getHinting()const

Returns level of glyph outline adjustment.

Return Value

one of: SkFontHinting::kNone, SkFontHinting::kSlight, SkFontHinting::kNormal,

SkFontHinting::kFull

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ SkFontHinting::kNormal == paint.getHinting() ~~~~

The bit values stored in Flags. The default value for Flags, normally zero, can be changed at compile time with a custom definition of SkPaintDefaults_Flags. All flags can be read and written explicitly; Flags allows manipulating multiple settings at once.

Constants

Flags default to all flags clear, disabling the associated feature.

SkPaint::kLCDRenderText_Flag 0x0200 mask for setting Font_Anti_Alias
SkPaint::kEmbeddedBitmapText_Flag 0x0400 mask for setting Font_Embedded_Bitmaps
SkPaint::kAutoHinting_Flag 0x0800 mask for setting Font_Force_Hinting
SkPaint::kAllFlags 0xFFFF mask of all Flags, including private flags and flags reserved for future use


uint32_t getFlags()const

Returns paint settings described by SkPaint::Flags. Each setting uses one bit, and can be tested with SkPaint::Flags members.

Return Value

zero, one, or more bits described by SkPaint::Flags

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ (SkPaint::kAntiAlias_Flag & paint.getFlags()) != 0 ~~~~


void setFlags(uint32_t flags)

Replaces SkPaint::Flags with flags, the union of the SkPaint::Flags members. All SkPaint::Flags members may be cleared, or one or more may be set.

Parameters

flags union of SkPaint::Flags for SkPaint

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ paint.isAntiAlias() paint.isDither() ~~~~


Anti_Alias drawing approximates partial pixel coverage with transparency. If kAntiAlias_Flag is clear, pixel centers contained by the shape edge are drawn opaque. If kAntiAlias_Flag is set, pixels are drawn with Color_Alpha equal to their coverage.

The rule for Aliased pixels is inconsistent across platforms. A shape edge passing through the pixel center may, but is not required to, draw the pixel.

Raster_Engine draws Aliased pixels whose centers are on or to the right of the start of an active Path edge, and whose center is to the left of the end of the active Path edge.

A platform may only support Anti_Aliased drawing. Some GPU-backed platforms use Supersampling to Anti_Alias all drawing, and have no mechanism to selectively Alias.

The amount of coverage computed for Anti_Aliased pixels also varies across platforms.

Anti_Alias is disabled by default. Anti_Alias can be enabled by default by setting SkPaintDefaults_Flags to kAntiAlias_Flag at compile time.

Example

A red line is drawn with transparency on the edges to make it look smoother. A blue line draws only where the pixel centers are contained. The lines are drawn into Bitmap, then drawn magnified to make the Aliasing easier to see.


bool isAntiAlias()const

Returns true if pixels on the active edges of SkPath may be drawn with partial transparency.

Equivalent to getFlags() masked with kAntiAlias_Flag.

Return Value

kAntiAlias_Flag state

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ paint.isAntiAlias() == !!(paint.getFlags() & SkPaint::kAntiAlias_Flag) paint.isAntiAlias() == !!(paint.getFlags() & SkPaint::kAntiAlias_Flag) ~~~~


void setAntiAlias(bool aa)

Requests, but does not require, that edge pixels draw opaque or with partial transparency.

Sets kAntiAlias_Flag if aa is true. Clears kAntiAlias_Flag if aa is false.

Parameters

aa setting for kAntiAlias_Flag

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ paint1 == paint2 ~~~~


Dither increases fidelity by adjusting the color of adjacent pixels. This can help to smooth color transitions and reducing banding in gradients. Dithering lessens visible banding from kRGB_565_SkColorType and kRGBA_8888_SkColorType gradients, and improves rendering into a kRGB_565_SkColorType Surface.

Dithering is always enabled for linear gradients drawing into kRGB_565_SkColorType Surface and kRGBA_8888_SkColorType Surface. Dither cannot be enabled for kAlpha_8_SkColorType Surface and kRGBA_F16_SkColorType Surface.

Dither is disabled by default. Dither can be enabled by default by setting SkPaintDefaults_Flags to kDither_Flag at compile time.

Some platform implementations may ignore dithering. Set SK_IGNORE_GPU_DITHERto ignore Dither on GPU_Surface.

Example

Dithering in the bottom half more closely approximates the requested color by alternating nearby colors from pixel to pixel.

Example

Dithering introduces subtle adjustments to color to smooth gradients. Drawing the gradient repeatedly with SkBlendMode::kPlus exaggerates the dither, making it easier to see.

See Also

Gradient kRGB_565_SkColorType


bool isDither()const

Returns true if color error may be distributed to smooth color transition.

Equivalent to getFlags() masked with kDither_Flag.

Return Value

kDither_Flag state

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ paint.isDither() == !!(paint.getFlags() & SkPaint::kDither_Flag) paint.isDither() == !!(paint.getFlags() & SkPaint::kDither_Flag) ~~~~


void setDither(bool dither)

Requests, but does not require, to distribute color error.

Sets kDither_Flag if dither is true. Clears kDither_Flag if dither is false.

Parameters

dither setting for kDither_Flag

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ paint1 == paint2 ~~~~

kRGB_565_SkColorType


Font_Anti_Alias and Font_Subpixel increase the precision of glyph position.

When set, Flags kLCDRenderText_Flag takes advantage of the organization of RGB stripes that create a color, and relies on the small size of the stripe and visual perception to make the color fringing imperceptible. Font_Anti_Alias can be enabled on devices that orient stripes horizontally or vertically, and that order the color components as RGB or BGR.

Flags kSubpixelText_Flag uses the pixel transparency to represent a fractional offset. As the opaqueness of the color increases, the edge of the glyph appears to move towards the outside of the pixel.

Either or both techniques can be enabled. kLCDRenderText_Flag and kSubpixelText_Flag are clear by default. Font_Anti_Alias or Font_Subpixel can be enabled by default by setting SkPaintDefaults_Flags to kLCDRenderText_Flag or kSubpixelText_Flag (or both) at compile time.

Example

Four commas are drawn normally and with combinations of Font_Anti_Alias and Font_Subpixel. When Font_Subpixel is disabled, the comma Glyphs are identical, but not evenly spaced. When Font_Subpixel is enabled, the comma Glyphs are unique, but appear evenly spaced.

Font_Linear selects whether text is rendered as a Glyph or as a Path. If Font_Linear is set, it has the same effect as setting Hinting to SkFontHinting::kNormal. If Font_Linear is clear, it is the same as setting Hinting to SkFontHinting::kNone.


bool isLinearText()const

Returns true if text is converted to SkPath before drawing and measuring.

Equivalent to getFlags() masked with kLinearText_Flag.

Return Value

kLinearText_Flag state

Example

See Also

setLinearText Hinting


void setLinearText(bool linearText)

Requests, but does not require, that glyphs are converted to SkPath before drawing and measuring. By default, kLinearText_Flag is clear.

Parameters

linearText setting for kLinearText_Flag

Example

isLinearText Hinting

Flags kSubpixelText_Flag uses the pixel transparency to represent a fractional offset. As the opaqueness of the color increases, the edge of the glyph appears to move towards the outside of the pixel.


bool isSubpixelText()const

Returns true if glyphs at different sub-pixel positions may differ on pixel edge coverage.

Equivalent to getFlags() masked with kSubpixelText_Flag.

Return Value

kSubpixelText_Flag state

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ paint.isSubpixelText() == !!(paint.getFlags() & SkPaint::kSubpixelText_Flag) paint.isSubpixelText() == !!(paint.getFlags() & SkPaint::kSubpixelText_Flag) ~~~~


void setSubpixelText(bool subpixelText)

Requests, but does not require, that glyphs respect sub-pixel positioning.

Sets kSubpixelText_Flag if subpixelText is true. Clears kSubpixelText_Flag if subpixelText is false.

Parameters

subpixelText setting for kSubpixelText_Flag

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ paint1 == paint2 ~~~~

When set, Font_Anti_Alias takes advantage of the organization of RGB stripes that create a color, and relies on the small size of the stripe and visual perception to make the color fringing imperceptible. Font_Anti_Alias can be enabled on devices that orient stripes horizontally or vertically, and that order the color components as RGB or BGR.


bool isLCDRenderText()const

Returns true if glyphs may use LCD striping to improve glyph edges.

Returns true if SkPaint::Flags kLCDRenderText_Flag is set.

Return Value

kLCDRenderText_Flag state

#### Example Output ~~~~ paint.isLCDRenderText() == !!(paint.getFlags() & SkPaint::kLCDRenderText_Flag) paint.isLCDRenderText() == !!(paint.getFlags() & SkPaint::kLCDRenderText_Flag) ~~~~


void setLCDRenderText(bool lcdText)

Requests, but does not require, that glyphs use LCD striping for glyph edges.

Sets kLCDRenderText_Flag if lcdText is true. Clears kLCDRenderText_Flag if lcdText is false.

Parameters

lcdText setting for kLCDRenderText_Flag

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ paint1 == paint2 ~~~~


Font_Embedded_Bitmaps allows selecting custom sized bitmap Glyphs. Flags kEmbeddedBitmapText_Flag when set chooses an embedded bitmap glyph over an outline contained in a font if the platform supports this option.

FreeType selects the bitmap glyph if available when kEmbeddedBitmapText_Flag is set, and selects the outline glyph if kEmbeddedBitmapText_Flag is clear. Windows may select the bitmap glyph but is not required to do so. OS_X and iOS do not support this option.

Font_Embedded_Bitmaps is disabled by default. Font_Embedded_Bitmaps can be enabled by default by setting SkPaintDefaults_Flags to kEmbeddedBitmapText_Flag at compile time.

Example

The "hintgasp" TrueType font in the Skia resources/fonts directory includes an embedded bitmap Glyph at odd font sizes. This example works on platforms that use FreeType as their Font_Engine. Windows may, but is not required to, return a bitmap glyph if kEmbeddedBitmapText_Flag is set.
SkBitmap bitmap; bitmap.allocN32Pixels(30, 15); bitmap.eraseColor(0); SkCanvas offscreen(bitmap); SkPaint paint; paint.setAntiAlias(true); paint.setTextSize(13); paint.setTypeface(MakeResourceAsTypeface("fonts/hintgasp.ttf")); for (bool embedded : { false, true}) { paint.setEmbeddedBitmapText(embedded); offscreen.drawString("A", embedded ? 5 : 15, 15, paint); } canvas->drawBitmap(bitmap, 0, 0); canvas->scale(10, 10); canvas->drawBitmap(bitmap, -2, 1);


bool isEmbeddedBitmapText()const

Returns true if font engine may return glyphs from font bitmaps instead of from outlines.

Equivalent to getFlags() masked with kEmbeddedBitmapText_Flag.

Return Value

kEmbeddedBitmapText_Flag state

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ paint.isEmbeddedBitmapText() == !!(paint.getFlags() & SkPaint::kEmbeddedBitmapText_Flag) paint.isEmbeddedBitmapText() == !!(paint.getFlags() & SkPaint::kEmbeddedBitmapText_Flag) ~~~~


void setEmbeddedBitmapText(bool useEmbeddedBitmapText)

Requests, but does not require, to use bitmaps in fonts instead of outlines.

Sets kEmbeddedBitmapText_Flag if useEmbeddedBitmapText is true. Clears kEmbeddedBitmapText_Flag if useEmbeddedBitmapText is false.

Parameters

useEmbeddedBitmapText setting for kEmbeddedBitmapText_Flag

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ paint1 == paint2 ~~~~

If Hinting is set to SkFontHinting::kNormal or SkFontHinting::kFull, Font_Force_Hinting instructs the Font_Manager to always hint Glyphs. Font_Force_Hinting has no effect if Hinting is set to SkFontHinting::kNone or SkFontHinting::kSlight.

Font_Force_Hinting only affects platforms that use FreeType as the Font_Manager.


bool isAutohinted()const

Returns true if SkPaint::Hinting is set to SkFontHinting::kNormal or SkFontHinting::kFull, and if platform uses FreeType as the font manager. If true, instructs the font manager to always hint glyphs.

Equivalent to getFlags() masked with kAutoHinting_Flag.

Return Value

kAutoHinting_Flag state

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ paint.isAutohinted() == !!(paint.getFlags() & SkPaint::kAutoHinting_Flag) paint.isAutohinted() == !!(paint.getFlags() & SkPaint::kAutoHinting_Flag) ~~~~

See Also

setAutohinted Hinting


void setAutohinted(bool useAutohinter)

Sets whether to always hint glyphs. If SkPaint::Hinting is set to SkFontHinting::kNormal or SkFontHinting::kFull and useAutohinter is set, instructs the font manager to always hint glyphs. useAutohinter has no effect if SkPaint::Hinting is set to SkFontHinting::kNone or SkFontHinting::kSlight.

Only affects platforms that use FreeType as the font manager.

Sets kAutoHinting_Flag if useAutohinter is true. Clears kAutoHinting_Flag if useAutohinter is false.

Parameters

useAutohinter setting for kAutoHinting_Flag

Example

Font_Embolden approximates the bold font style accompanying a normal font when a bold font face is not available. Skia does not provide font substitution; it is up to the client to find the bold font face using the platform Font_Manager.

Use Text_Skew_X to approximate an italic font style when the italic font face is not available.

A FreeType based port may define SK_USE_FREETYPE_EMBOLDEN at compile time to direct the font engine to create the bold Glyphs. Otherwise, the extra bold is computed by increasing the stroke width and setting the Style to kStrokeAndFill_Style as needed.

Font_Embolden is disabled by default.

Example


bool isFakeBoldText()const

Returns true if approximate bold by increasing the stroke width when creating glyph bitmaps from outlines.

Equivalent to getFlags() masked with kFakeBoldText_Flag.

Return Value

kFakeBoldText_Flag state

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ paint.isFakeBoldText() == !!(paint.getFlags() & SkPaint::kFakeBoldText_Flag) paint.isFakeBoldText() == !!(paint.getFlags() & SkPaint::kFakeBoldText_Flag) ~~~~


void setFakeBoldText(bool fakeBoldText)

Increases stroke width when creating glyph bitmaps to approximate a bold typeface.

Sets kFakeBoldText_Flag if fakeBoldText is true. Clears kFakeBoldText_Flag if fakeBoldText is false.

Parameters

fakeBoldText setting for kFakeBoldText_Flag

Filter_Quality trades speed for image filtering when the image is scaled. A lower Filter_Quality draws faster, but has less fidelity. A higher Filter_Quality draws slower, but looks better. If the image is drawn without scaling, the Filter_Quality choice will not result in a noticeable difference.

Filter_Quality is used in Paint passed as a parameter to

SkCanvas::drawBitmap
SkCanvas::drawBitmapRect
SkCanvas::drawImage
SkCanvas::drawImageRect

and when Paint has a Shader specialization that uses Image or Bitmap.

Filter_Quality is kNone_SkFilterQuality by default.

Example


SkFilterQuality getFilterQuality()const

Returns SkFilterQuality, the image filtering level. A lower setting draws faster; a higher setting looks better when the image is scaled.

Return Value

one of: kNone_SkFilterQuality, kLow_SkFilterQuality,

kMedium_SkFilterQuality, kHigh_SkFilterQuality

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ kNone_SkFilterQuality == paint.getFilterQuality() ~~~~


void setFilterQuality(SkFilterQuality quality)

Sets SkFilterQuality, the image filtering level. A lower setting draws faster; a higher setting looks better when the image is scaled. Does not check to see if quality is valid.

Parameters

quality one of: kNone_SkFilterQuality, kLow_SkFilterQuality,

kMedium_SkFilterQuality, kHigh_SkFilterQuality

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ kHigh_SkFilterQuality == paint.getFilterQuality() ~~~~

name description
getColor returns Color_Alpha and RGB, one drawing color
setColor sets Color_Alpha and RGB, one drawing color

Color specifies the red, blue, green, and Color_Alpha values used to draw a filled or stroked shape in a 32-bit value. Each component occupies 8-bits, ranging from zero: no contribution; to 255: full intensity. All values in any combination are valid.

Color is not Premultiplied; Color_Alpha sets the transparency independent of RGB: red, blue, and green.

The bit positions of Color_Alpha and RGB are independent of the bit positions on the output device, which may have more or fewer bits, and may have a different arrangement.

bit positions Color_Alpha red blue green
31 - 24 23 - 16 15 - 8 7 - 0

Example


SkColor getColor()const

Retrieves alpha and RGB, unpremultiplied, packed into 32 bits. Use helpers SkColorGetA(), SkColorGetR(), SkColorGetG(), and SkColorGetB() to extract a color component.

Return Value

unpremultiplied ARGB

Style specifies if the geometry is filled, stroked, or both filled and stroked. Some shapes ignore Style and are always drawn filled or stroked.

Set Style to kFill_Style to fill the shape. The fill covers the area inside the geometry for most shapes.

Set Style to kStroke_Style to stroke the shape.

The stroke covers the area described by following the shape edge with a pen or brush of Stroke_Width. The area covered where the shape starts and stops is described by Stroke_Cap. The area covered where the shape turns a corner is described by Stroke_Join. The stroke is centered on the shape; it extends equally on either side of the shape edge.As Stroke_Width gets smaller, the drawn path frame is thinner. Stroke_Width less than one may have gaps, and if kAntiAlias_Flag is set, Color_Alpha will increase to visually decrease coverage.

See Also

Path_Fill_Type Path_Effect Style_Fill Style_Stroke


Stroke_Width of zero has a special meaning and switches drawing to use Hairline. Hairline draws the thinnest continuous frame. If kAntiAlias_Flag is clear, adjacent pixels flow horizontally, vertically,or diagonally.

Path drawing with Hairline may hit the same pixel more than once. For instance, Path containing two lines in one Path_Contour will draw the corner point once, but may both lines may draw the adjacent pixel. If kAntiAlias_Flag is set, transparency is applied twice, resulting in a darker pixel. Some GPU-backed implementations apply transparency at a later drawing stage, avoiding double hit pixels while stroking.

    enum Style : uint8_t {
        kFill_Style,
        kStroke_Style,
        kStrokeAndFill_Style,
    };

    static constexpr int kStyleCount = kStrokeAndFill_Style + 1;

Set Style to fill, stroke, or both fill and stroke geometry. The stroke and fill share all paint attributes; for instance, they are drawn with the same color.

Use kStrokeAndFill_Style to avoid hitting the same pixels twice with a stroke draw and a fill draw.

Constants

Const Value Description
SkPaint::kFill_Style 0 Applies to Rect, Region, Round_Rect, Circles, Ovals, Path, and Text. Bitmap, Image, Patches, Region, Sprites, and Vertices are painted as if kFill_Style is set, and ignore the set Style. The Path_Fill_Type specifies additional rules to fill the area outside the path edge, and to create an unfilled hole inside the shape. Style is set to kFill_Style by default.
SkPaint::kStroke_Style 1 Applies to Rect, Region, Round_Rect, Arcs, Circles, Ovals, Path, and Text. Arcs, Lines, and points, are always drawn as if kStroke_Style is set, and ignore the set Style. The stroke construction is unaffected by the Path_Fill_Type.
SkPaint::kStrokeAndFill_Style 2 Applies to Rect, Region, Round_Rect, Circles, Ovals, Path, and Text. Path is treated as if it is set to SkPath::kWinding_FillType, and the set Path_Fill_Type is ignored.
SkPaint::kStyleCount 3 May be used to verify that Style is a legal value.


Style getStyle()const

Returns whether the geometry is filled, stroked, or filled and stroked.

Return Value

one of:kFill_Style, kStroke_Style, kStrokeAndFill_Style

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ SkPaint::kFill_Style == paint.getStyle() ~~~~

See Also

Style setStyle


void setStyle(Style style)

Sets whether the geometry is filled, stroked, or filled and stroked. Has no effect if style is not a legal SkPaint::Style value.

Parameters

style one of: kFill_Style, kStroke_Style, kStrokeAndFill_Style

Example

See Also

Style getStyle


Stroke_Width sets the width for stroking. The width is the thickness of the stroke perpendicular to the path direction when the paint style is set to kStroke_Style or kStrokeAndFill_Style.

When width is greater than zero, the stroke encompasses as many pixels partially or fully as needed. When the width equals zero, the paint enables hairlines; the stroke is always one pixel wide.

The stroke dimensions are scaled by the canvas matrix, but Hairline stroke remains one pixel wide regardless of scaling.

The default width for the paint is zero.

Example

The pixels hit to represent thin lines vary with the angle of the line and the platform implementation.


SkScalar getStrokeWidth()const

Returns the thickness of the pen used by SkPaint to outline the shape.

Return Value

zero for hairline, greater than zero for pen thickness

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ 0 == paint.getStrokeWidth() ~~~~


void setStrokeWidth(SkScalar width)

Sets the thickness of the pen used by the paint to outline the shape. Has no effect if width is less than zero.

Parameters

width zero thickness for hairline; greater than zero for pen thickness

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ 5 == paint.getStrokeWidth() ~~~~


Miter_Limit specifies the maximum miter length, relative to the stroke width.

Miter_Limit is used when the Stroke_Join is set to kMiter_Join, and the Style is either kStroke_Style or kStrokeAndFill_Style.

If the miter at a corner exceeds this limit, kMiter_Join is replaced with kBevel_Join.

Miter_Limit can be computed from the corner angle using: miter limit = 1 / sin ( angle / 2 ).

Miter_Limit default value is 4. The default may be changed at compile time by setting SkPaintDefaults_MiterLimit in “SkUserConfig.h” or as a define supplied by the build environment.

Here are some miter limits and the angles that triggers them.

miter limit angle in degrees
10 11.48
9 12.76
8 14.36
7 16.43
6 19.19
5 23.07
4 28.96
3 38.94
2 60
1 180

Example

This example draws a stroked corner and the miter length beneath. When the miter limit is decreased slightly, the miter join is replaced by a bevel join.


SkScalar getStrokeMiter()const

Returns the limit at which a sharp corner is drawn beveled.

Return Value

zero and greater miter limit

    enum Cap {
        kButt_Cap,
        kRound_Cap,
        kSquare_Cap,
        kLast_Cap = kSquare_Cap,
        kDefault_Cap = kButt_Cap,
    };

    static constexpr int kCapCount = kLast_Cap + 1;

Stroke_Cap draws at the beginning and end of an open Path_Contour.

Constants

Const Value Description
SkPaint::kButt_Cap 0 Does not extend the stroke past the beginning or the end.
SkPaint::kRound_Cap 1 Adds a circle with a diameter equal to Stroke_Width at the beginning and end.
SkPaint::kSquare_Cap 2 Adds a square with sides equal to Stroke_Width at the beginning and end. The square sides are parallel to the initial and final direction of the stroke.
SkPaint::kLast_Cap 2 Equivalent to the largest value for Stroke_Cap.
SkPaint::kDefault_Cap 0 Stroke_Cap is set to kButt_Cap by default.
SkPaint::kCapCount 3 May be used to verify that Stroke_Cap is a legal value.

Stroke describes the area covered by a pen of Stroke_Width as it follows the Path_Contour, moving parallel to the contour direction.

If the Path_Contour is not terminated by SkPath::kClose_Verb, the contour has a visible beginning and end.

Path_Contour may start and end at the same point; defining Zero_Length_Contour.

kButt_Cap and Zero_Length_Contour is not drawn. kRound_Cap and Zero_Length_Contour draws a circle of diameter Stroke_Width at the contour point. kSquare_Cap and Zero_Length_Contour draws an upright square with a side of Stroke_Width at the contour point.

Stroke_Cap is kButt_Cap by default.

Example


Cap getStrokeCap()const

Returns the geometry drawn at the beginning and end of strokes.

Return Value

one of: kButt_Cap, kRound_Cap, kSquare_Cap

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ kButt_Cap == default stroke cap ~~~~

Stroke_Cap getStrokeCap

Stroke_Join draws at the sharp corners of an open or closed Path_Contour.

Stroke describes the area covered by a pen of Stroke_Width as it follows the Path_Contour, moving parallel to the contour direction.

If the contour direction changes abruptly, because the tangent direction leading to the end of a curve within the contour does not match the tangent direction of the following curve, the pair of curves meet at Stroke_Join.

Example


    enum Join : uint8_t {
        kMiter_Join,
        kRound_Join,
        kBevel_Join,
        kLast_Join = kBevel_Join,
        kDefault_Join = kMiter_Join,
    };

    static constexpr int kJoinCount = kLast_Join + 1;

Join specifies how corners are drawn when a shape is stroked. Join affects the four corners of a stroked rectangle, and the connected segments in a stroked path.

Choose miter join to draw sharp corners. Choose round join to draw a circle with a radius equal to the stroke width on top of the corner. Choose bevel join to minimally connect the thick strokes.

The fill path constructed to describe the stroked path respects the join setting but may not contain the actual join. For instance, a fill path constructed with round joins does not necessarily include circles at each connected segment.

Constants

Const Value Description
SkPaint::kMiter_Join 0 Extends the outside corner to the extent allowed by Miter_Limit. If the extension exceeds Miter_Limit, kBevel_Join is used instead.
SkPaint::kRound_Join 1 Adds a circle with a diameter of Stroke_Width at the sharp corner.
SkPaint::kBevel_Join 2 Connects the outside edges of the sharp corner.
SkPaint::kLast_Join 2 equivalent to the largest value for Stroke_Join
SkPaint::kDefault_Join 1 Stroke_Join is set to kMiter_Join by default.
SkPaint::kJoinCount 3 May be used to verify that Stroke_Join is a legal value.

Fill_Path creates a Path by applying the Path_Effect, followed by the Style_Stroke.

If Paint contains Path_Effect, Path_Effect operates on the source Path; the result replaces the destination Path. Otherwise, the source Path is replaces the destination Path.

Fill Path can request the Path_Effect to restrict to a culling rectangle, but the Path_Effect is not required to do so.

If Style is kStroke_Style or kStrokeAndFill_Style, and Stroke_Width is greater than zero, the Stroke_Width, Stroke_Cap, Stroke_Join, and Miter_Limit operate on the destination Path, replacing it.

Fill Path can specify the precision used by Stroke_Width to approximate the stroke geometry.

If the Style is kStroke_Style and the Stroke_Width is zero, getFillPath returns false since Hairline has no filled equivalent.

Style_Stroke Stroke_Width Path_Effect


bool getFillPath(const SkPath& src, SkPath* dst, const SkRect* cullRect, SkScalar resScale = 1)const

Returns the filled equivalent of the stroked path.

to favor speed and size

Return Value

true if the path represents style fill, or false if it represents hairline

Example

A very small Quad stroke is turned into a filled path with increasing levels of precision. At the lowest precision, the Quad stroke is approximated by a rectangle. At the highest precision, the filled path has high fidelity compared to the original stroke.


bool getFillPath(const SkPath& src, SkPath* dst)const

Returns the filled equivalent of the stroked path.

Replaces dst with the src path modified by SkPathEffect and style stroke. SkPathEffect, if any, is not culled. stroke width is created with default precision.

Parameters

src SkPath read to create a filled version
dst resulting SkPath dst may be the same as src, but may not be nullptr

Return Value

true if the path represents style fill, or false if it represents hairline

Example


Shader defines the colors used when drawing a shape. Shader may be an image, a gradient, or a computed fill. If Paint has no Shader, then Color fills the shape.

Shader is modulated by Color_Alpha component of Color. If Shader object defines only Color_Alpha, then Color modulated by Color_Alpha describes the fill.

The drawn transparency can be modified without altering Shader, by changing Color_Alpha.

int textToGlyphs(const void* text, size_t byteLength, SkGlyphID glyphs[])const

Converts text into glyph indices. Returns the number of glyph indices represented by text. SkTextEncoding specifies how text represents characters or glyphs. glyphs may be nullptr, to compute the glyph count.

Does not check text for valid character codes or valid glyph indices.

If byteLength equals zero, returns zero. If byteLength includes a partial character, the partial character is ignored.

If SkTextEncoding is kUTF8_SkTextEncoding and text contains an invalid UTF-8 sequence, zero is returned.

Parameters

text character storage encoded with SkTextEncoding
byteLength length of character storage in bytes
glyphs storage for glyph indices; may be nullptr

Return Value

number of glyphs represented by text of length byteLength

Example


int countText(const void* text, size_t byteLength)const

Returns the number of glyphs in text. Uses SkTextEncoding to count the glyphs. Returns the same result as textToGlyphs().

Parameters

text character storage encoded with SkTextEncoding
byteLength length of character storage in bytes

Return Value

number of glyphs represented by text of length byteLength

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ count = 5 ~~~~


bool containsText(const void* text, size_t byteLength)const

Returns true if all text corresponds to a non-zero glyph index. Returns false if any characters in text are not supported in SkTypeface.

If SkTextEncoding is kGlyphID_SkTextEncoding, returns true if all glyph indices in text are non-zero; does not check to see if text contains valid glyph indices for SkTypeface.

Returns true if byteLength is zero.

Parameters

text array of characters or glyphs
byteLength number of bytes in text array

Return Value

true if all text corresponds to a non-zero glyph index

containsText succeeds for degree symbol, but cannot find a glyph index corresponding to the Unicode surrogate code point.

Example Output

0x00b0 == has char
0xd800 != has char

Example

containsText returns true that glyph index is greater than zero, not that it corresponds to an entry in Typeface.

Example Output

0x01ff == has glyph
0x0000 != has glyph
0xffff == has glyph

void glyphsToUnichars(const SkGlyphID glyphs[], int count, SkUnichar text[])const

Converts glyphs into text if possible. Glyph values without direct Unicode equivalents are mapped to zero. Uses the SkTypeface, but is unaffected by SkTextEncoding; the text values returned are equivalent to kUTF32_SkTextEncoding.

Only supported on platforms that use FreeType as the font engine.

Parameters

glyphs array of indices into font
count length of glyph array
text storage for character codes, one per glyph
Convert UTF-8 text to glyphs; then convert glyphs to Unichar code points.


SkScalar measureText(const void* text, size_t length, SkRect* bounds)const

Returns the advance width of text. The advance is the normal distance to move before drawing additional text. Uses SkTextEncoding to decode text, SkTypeface to get the font metrics, and text size, text scale x, text skew x, stroke width, and SkPathEffect to scale the metrics and bounds. Returns the bounding box of text if bounds is not nullptr. The bounding box is computed as if the text was drawn at the origin.

Parameters

text character codes or glyph indices to be measured
length number of bytes of text to measure
bounds returns bounding box relative to (0, 0) if not nullptr

Return Value

advance width or height

Example


SkScalar measureText(const void* text, size_t length)const

Returns the advance width of text. The advance is the normal distance to move before drawing additional text. Uses SkTextEncoding to decode text, SkTypeface to get the font metrics, and text size to scale the metrics. Does not scale the advance or bounds by fake bold or SkPathEffect.

Parameters

text character codes or glyph indices to be measured
length number of bytes of text to measure

Return Value

advance width or height

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ default width = 5 double width = 10 ~~~~


int getTextWidths(const void* text, size_t byteLength, SkScalar widths[], SkRect bounds[] = nullptr)const

Retrieves the advance and bounds for each glyph in text, and returns the glyph count in text. Both widths and bounds may be nullptr. If widths is not nullptr, widths must be an array of glyph count entries. if bounds is not nullptr, bounds must be an array of glyph count entries. Uses SkTextEncoding to decode text, SkTypeface to get the font metrics, and text size to scale the widths and bounds. Does not scale the advance by fake bold or SkPathEffect. Does include fake bold and SkPathEffect in the bounds.

Parameters

text character codes or glyph indices to be measured
byteLength number of bytes of text to measure
widths returns text advances for each glyph; may be nullptr
bounds returns bounds for each glyph relative to (0, 0); may be nullptr

Return Value

glyph count in text

Example

Bounds of Glyphs increase for stroked text, but text advance remains the same. The underlines show the text advance, spaced to keep them distinct.

Text_Path describes the geometry of Glyphs used to draw text.


void getTextPath(const void* text, size_t length, SkScalar x, SkScalar y, SkPath* path)const

Returns the geometry as SkPath equivalent to the drawn text. Uses SkTextEncoding to decode text, SkTypeface to get the glyph paths, and text size, fake bold, and SkPathEffect to scale and modify the glyph paths. All of the glyph paths are stored in path. Uses x, y, to position path.

Parameters

text character codes or glyph indices
length number of bytes of text
x x-axis value of the origin of the text
y y-axis value of the origin of the text
path geometry of the glyphs

Example

Text is added to Path, offset, and subtracted from Path, then added at the offset location. The result is rendered with one draw call.


void getPosTextPath(const void* text, size_t length, const SkPoint pos[], SkPath* path)const

Returns the geometry as SkPath equivalent to the drawn text. Uses SkTextEncoding to decode text, SkTypeface to get the glyph paths, and text size, fake bold, and SkPathEffect to scale and modify the glyph paths. All of the glyph paths are stored in path. Uses pos array to position path. pos contains a position for each glyph.

Parameters

text character codes or glyph indices
length number of bytes of text
pos positions of each glyph
path geometry of the glyphs

Example

Simplifies three Glyphs to eliminate overlaps, and strokes the result.


bool nothingToDraw()const

Returns true if SkPaint prevents all drawing; otherwise, the SkPaint may or may not allow drawing.

Returns true if, for example, SkBlendMode combined with alpha computes a new alpha of zero.

Return Value

true if SkPaint prevents all drawing

Example

#### Example Output ~~~~ initial nothing to draw: false blend dst nothing to draw: true blend src over nothing to draw: false alpha 0 nothing to draw: true ~~~~
