getBounds
Returns an integerRectangle
that completely encloses theShape
. Note that there is no guarantee that the returnedRectangle
is the smallest bounding box that encloses theShape
, only that theShape
lies entirely within the indicatedRectangle
. The returnedRectangle
might also fail to completely enclose theShape
if theShape
overflows the limited range of the integer data type. ThegetBounds2D
method generally returns a tighter bounding box due to its greater flexibility in representation.Note that the definition of insideness can lead to situations where points on the defining outline of the
shape
may not be considered contained in the returnedbounds
object, but only in cases where those points are also not considered contained in the originalshape
.If a
point
is inside theshape
according to thecontains(point)
method, then it must be inside the returnedRectangle
bounds object according to thecontains(point)
method of thebounds
. Specifically:shape.contains(x,y)
requiresbounds.contains(x,y)
If a

is not inside theshape
, then it might still be contained in thebounds
