The Rectangle

4 sided shapes

What the intervals look like. Let’s get down to it. This first block of intervals is performed at 60% of your maximum effort. You’ll be jogging around a complete rectangle in a clockwise direction for interval #1 and then a counter-clockwise direction for interval #2. A rectangle is also called an equiangular quadrilateral, since all of its angles are congruent. A rectangle is a parallelogram, but parallelogram is not a rectangle because in a rectangle each angle is a right angle, whereas it is not so in a parallelogram. That means that all the properties of a parallelogram can be also applied to rectangles.

The Rectangle class derives from the Shape class, and can be used to draw rectangles and squares. For information on the properties that the Rectangle class inherits from the Shape class, see Xamarin.Forms Shapes.

Rectangle defines the following properties:

  • RadiusX, of type double, which is the x-axis radius that's used to round the corners of the rectangle. The default value of this property is 0.0.
  • RadiusY, of type double, which is the y-axis radius that's used to round the corners of the rectangle. The default value of this property is 0.0.

These properties are backed by BindableProperty objects, which means that they can be targets of data bindings, and styled.

The Rectangle class sets the Aspect property, inherited from the Shape class, to Stretch.Fill. For more information about the Aspect property, see Stretch shapes.

Create a Rectangle

To draw a rectangle, create a Rectangle object and sets its WidthRequest and HeightRequest properties. To paint the inside of the rectangle, set its Fill property to a Brush-derived object. To give the rectangle an outline, set its Stroke property to a Brush-derived object. The StrokeThickness property specifies the thickness of the rectangle outline. For more information about Brush objects, see Xamarin.Forms Brushes.

To give the rectangle rounded corners, set its RadiusX and RadiusY properties. These properties set the x-axis and y-axis radii that's used to round the corners of the rectangle.

To draw a square, make the WidthRequest and HeightRequest properties of the Rectangle object equal.

The following XAML example shows how to draw a filled rectangle:

In this example, a red filled rectangle with dimensions 150x50 (device-independent units) is drawn:

The following XAML example shows how to draw a filled rectangle, with rounded corners:

In this example, a blue filled rectangle with rounded corners is drawn:

I am a self-taught artist and have been painting for more than 30 years. I grew up in logging camps and this environment constantly exposed me to nature. This kindled my interest in landscapes, animals, florals and still life. I began by drawing on anything I could find and when finances allowed, I moved on to cheap watercolors and then finally to oil, acrylics and gouache.

The Rectangle Shades

One of my biggest influences in art came in the 80s when I was introduced to the teachings of Betty Edwards with the book “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain”. The book taught me how to look at subjects for a different perspective and enabled me to improve my drawing and painting abilities.

The Rectangle Controls

My styles are realism and impressionism. I paint mainly in oils and paint subjects that interest and excite me and subjects that the viewer can relate to, whether it be a landscape, floral arrangement, still life or portrait.
