creating a Graphics object + setting pixel values

Hi !!

what i'm trying to do is .. create a Graphics object of dimensions , say, 500 x 500 pixels.

Then, given some x and y coordinates, call the function drawPolygon a number of times to draw a few polygons in the graphics object.

And finally, retrieve the pixel value for each coordinate
e.g. (pseudocode),
-----------------
for i=0 to 499 ;
---for j=0 to 499;
------int thecolor = graphicsobject.getpixelvalue(i,j)
-----------------

is it possible to do something like this ??

thanks :)

If you wanna draw polygons, etc, then why not use the drawPolygon (), drawRect (), etc methods of the Graphics2D class?

ok .. i'll try that ..
is there any way to get the color value of a particular pixel (row,col) from a Graphics2D object ?

thanks :)

if you are only insterested in the pixel color then paint your polyfon to a BufferedImage, and use it's getRBG() method to retrieve the pixel value

BufferedImage bi = ...
Graphics g = bi.getGraphics();

// do your painting

for i=0 to 499 ;
---for j=0 to 499;
------int thecolor = bi.getRGB(i,j)
