`java.lang.Object`

`java.awt.geom.RectangularShape`

`java.awt.geom.Arc2D`

**Implemented Interfaces:**- Cloneable, Shape

**Known Direct Subclasses:**- Arc2D.Double, Arc2D.Float

`public abstract class `**Arc2D**

`extends RectangularShape`

This class represents all arcs (segments of an ellipse in 2-D space). The
arcs are defined by starting angle and extent (arc length) in degrees, as
opposed to radians (like the rest of Java), and can be open, chorded, or
wedge shaped. The angles are skewed according to the ellipse, so that 45
degrees always points to the upper right corner (positive x, negative y)
of the bounding rectangle. A positive extent draws a counterclockwise arc,
and while the angle can be any value, the path iterator only traverses the
first 360 degrees. Storage is up to the subclasses.

**Since:**- 1.2

public static final int CHORD

A closed arc with a single segment connecting the endpoints (a chord).

Field Value:- 1

public static final int OPEN

An open arc, with no segment connecting the endpoints. This type of arc still contains the same points as a chorded version.

Field Value:- 0

public static final int PIE

A closed arc with two segments, one from each endpoint, meeting at the center of the ellipse.

Field Value:- 2

public boolean contains(double x, double y)

Determines if the arc contains the given point. If the bounding box is empty, then this will return false. The area considered 'inside' an arc of type OPEN is the same as the area inside an equivalent filled CHORD-type arc. The area considered 'inside' a CHORD-type arc is the same as the filled area.

Parameters:`x`

- the x coordinate to test`y`

- the y coordinate to test

Returns:- true if the point is inside the arc

public boolean contains(double x, double y, double w, double h)

Tests if a given rectangle is contained in the area of the arc.

Tests if a given rectangle is contained in the area of the arc.

Overrides:- contains in interface RectangularShape

Parameters:`r`

- the rectangle

Returns:- true if the arc contains the rectangle

public boolean containsAngle(double a)

Tests if the given angle, in degrees, is included in the arc. All angles are normalized to be between 0 and 360 degrees.
