Items of type rectangle appear as rectangular regions on
the display. Each rectangle may have an outline, a fill, or
both. Rectangles are created with widget commands of the
- pathName :create rectangle x1 y1 x2 y2 ?option value option value ...?
The arguments x1, y1, x2, and y2 give
the coordinates of two diagonally opposite corners of the rectangle
(the rectangle will include its upper and left edges but not
its lower or right edges).
After the coordinates there may be any number of option-value
pairs, each of which sets one of the configuration options
for the item. These same option\-value pairs may be
used in itemconfigure widget commands to change the item's
The following options are supported for rectangles:
- :fill color
- Fill the area of the rectangle with color, which may be
specified in any of the forms accepted by Tk_GetColor.
If color is an empty string (the default), then
then the rectangle will not be filled.
- :outline color
- Draw an outline around the edge of the rectangle in color.
Color may have any of the forms accepted by Tk_GetColor.
This option defaults to black.
If color is an empty string then no outline will be
drawn for the rectangle.
- :stipple bitmap
- Indicates that the rectangle should be filled in a stipple pattern;
bitmap specifies the stipple pattern to use, in any of the
forms accepted by Tk_GetBitmap.
If the :fill option hasn't been specified then this option
has no effect.
If bitmap is an empty string (the default), then filling
is done in a solid fashion.
- :tags tagList
- Specifies a set of tags to apply to the item.
TagList consists of a list of tag names, which replace any
existing tags for the item.
TagList may be an empty list.
- :width outlineWidth
- OutlineWidth specifies the width of the outline to be drawn around
the rectangle, in any of the forms described in the COORDINATES section above.
If the :outline option hasn't been specified then this option
has no effect.
Wide outlines are drawn centered on the rectangular path
defined by x1, y1, x2, and y2.
This option defaults to 1.0.
