Hi everybody,

I'm currently working with applet and needs to make a lot of graphics, so I just wanted to know if anyone had a porgram that let the user paints and then generates the code of the graphics.

Thanks for your help,

Is this the sort of thing you mean?

This is kind of what I'm looking for, except that when I have made all my graphics, I'd like to be given the code of those graphics...

ie. If I draw 4 rectangles and a circle, I'd like to have something like:

g.drawRect(10, 90, 150, 100);
g.drawRect(40, 120, 150, 100);
g.drawRect(70, 150, 150, 100);
g.drawRect(100, 1800, 150, 100);
g.drawOval(180, 20, 260, 80);


Thanks, Frank

You need to save each Shape into a collection each time drawing takes place. Can you just post the part of your code where that happens?

well I haven't done anything yet...

When I did some Java back in college, I use to have a small application that would let me draw some shape and generate the Applet code once I was done. That's exactly what I would need, since I would have all my shapes already and would only have to add some code.

Don't know if I'm being clear, but I'm looking for a way to avoid losing time with the graphics...

Thanks, Frank

There are many WYSIWYG for generating Java code to create forms, but I don't know of any that can generate code for graphics.
Also, if there was one It would probably not generate the code based on a given image.
Java 1.1 graphics are very simple to use (see this short tutorial to prove it: http://richardbowles.tripod.com/java/guide/graphics.htm)
Going further to the Java2D graphics can be more complex but still not that bad: http://www.apl.jhu.edu/~hall/java/Java2D-Tutorial.html
