Description

GooCanvasPolyline represents a polyline item, which is a series of one or more lines, with optional arrows at either end.

It is a subclass of GooCanvasItemSimple and so inherits all of the style properties such as "stroke-color", "fill-color" and "line-width".

It also implements the GooCanvasItem interface, so you can use the GooCanvasItem functions such as goo_canvas_item_raise() and goo_canvas_item_rotate().

To create a GooCanvasPolyline use goo_canvas_polyline_new(), or goo_canvas_polyline_new_line() for a simple line between two points.

To get or set the properties of an existing GooCanvasPolyline, use g_object_get() and g_object_set().

goo_canvas_polyline_new ()

GooCanvasItem*      goo_canvas_polyline_new             (GooCanvasItem *parent,
                                                         gboolean close_path,
                                                         gint num_points,
                                                         ...);

Creates a new polyline item.

parent :

the parent item, or NULL. If a parent is specified, it will assume ownership of the item, and the item will automatically be freed when it is removed from the parent. Otherwise call g_object_unref() to free it.

close_path :

if the last point should be connected to the first.

num_points :

the number of points in the polyline.

... :

the pairs of coordinates for each point in the line, followed by optional pairs of property names and values, and a terminating NULL.

Returns :

a new polyline item.

Here's an example showing how to create a filled triangle with vertices at (100,100), (300,100), and (200,300).

                                                         ...);

Creates a new polyline item with a single line.

parent :

the parent item, or NULL.

x1 :

the x coordinate of the start of the line.

y1 :

the y coordinate of the start of the line.

x2 :

the x coordinate of the end of the line.

y2 :

the y coordinate of the end of the line.

... :

optional pairs of property names and values, and a terminating NULL.

Returns :

a new polyline item.

Here's an example showing how to create a line from (100,100) to (300,300).
