# FilledCurve

FilledCurve[{segment1, segment2, ...}]
represents a filled curve consisting of followed by etc.

FilledCurve[{component1, component2, ...}]
represents a list of separate filled component curves , , etc.

## Details and OptionsDetails and Options

• FilledCurve can be used in Graphics (two-dimensional graphics).
• FilledCurve[segment] is equivalent to FilledCurve[{segment}].
• Possible forms of include:
•  Line[{pt1,pt2,...}] lines BezierCurve[{pt1,pt2,...},...] Bézier curve BSplineCurve[{pt1,pt2,...},...] B-spline curve
• The first point on is taken to be the last point on . FilledCurve[{pr1[{p1, ..., pi}], pr2[{q1, ..., qj}], ...}] is equivalent to FilledCurve[{pr1[{p1, ..., pi}], pr2[{pi, q1, ..., qj}], ...}].
• Filled curves can be non-convex and intersect themselves. Self-intersecting curves are filled according to an even-odd rule that alternates between filling and not at each crossing.
• FilledCurve[{component1, component2, ...}] treats each component curve as a separate closed curve, but the filling behavior is determined as if they were part of the same curve.
• The coordinates can be specified using:
•  {x,y} ordinary coordinates Scaled[{x,y}] scaled coordinates ImageScaled[{x,y}] image scaled coordinates Offset[{dx,dy},{x,y}] absolute offset coordinates
• Individual coordinates and lists of coordinates in segments can be Dynamic objects.
• FaceForm and EdgeForm can be used to specify how the interiors and boundaries should be rendered.
• Edge thickness can be specified using Thickness or AbsoluteThickness, as well as Thick, Thin, etc. in EdgeForm.
• Edge dashing can be specified using Dashing or AbsoluteDashing, as well as Dashed, Dotted, etc. in EdgeForm; for FilledCurve the dashing will be computed across all segments for each component curve.
• Edge coloring and transparency can be specified using CMYKColor, GrayLevel, Hue, Opacity, or RGBColor in EdgeForm.
• Joining of curve segments can be specified using JoinForm.
• Face coloring and transparency can be specified using CMYKColor, GrayLevel, Hue, Opacity, or RGBColor in FaceForm.
• VertexColors and VertexNormals options to Line will have no effect within a FilledCurve construct.
