Is it useful to allow the grouping of elements like text/paths/…? That way, several elements on the canvas can be moved/scaled/rotated at the same time and around the came coördinates, without having to code all of them one by one.
I would like to encourage you to write your own 'grouped' items!
make function, a
def myTextRect(...), that draws anything you like to draw!!!
def myTextRect(txt, box, border): x, y, w, h = box with savedState(): with savedState(): stroke(0, 1, 1) fill(None) strokeWidth(border) rect(x - border, y - border, w + border * 2, h + border * 2) corners = [ (x - border, y - border), (x + w + border, y - border), (x + w + border, y + h + border), (x - border, y + h + border), ] stroke(None) fill(1, 0, 0) dotSize = border * 2 for cornerX, cornerY in corners: oval(cornerX - dotSize, cornerY - dotSize, dotSize * 2, dotSize * 2) font("Times-Italic") fontSize(20) fill(0, 1, 0) textBox(txt, box) translate(100, 100) myTextRect("hello world" * 100, (20, 20, 300, 200), 20) translate(0, 400) myTextRect("foo bar" * 100, (20, 20, 300, 200), 20)
@frederik Got it. Thanks!
