Hi Experts ..

Assume that I draw a polygon in a panel (swing app), How can  I change the color of the polygon when it is clicked??  I have image/map in a panel, the user draw polygon or rectangle to surround an area in the map!! I want to allow  the user to be able to move this polygon or rectangle!! so when he clicks on it, its color changed showing that it is selected!! and he can move it!!
At the first stage I want to know how can I change its color??

This is a bit more difficult than it seems. First you would need some custom code to figure out which polygon was selected - that involves basically checking if the click point is very close to any of the polygon's edges.


Then, you would need to remember which polygon was clicked and inside the method you do the drawing, change the color before drawing and then change it back to black (or whatever you're using)

for (Polygon p : polygons){
if (p.isSelected()){
graphics.setColor(Color.RED);
}
//your usual polygon drawing stuff code here
if(p.isSelected()){
graphics.setColor(Color.BLACK);
}
}

I think this can be done, but what about circle?? how can I determine If I click inside it?? it doesn't have edges??

You will only want clicks on the edge of the circle, that means distance to center = circle radius.
for (Circle c: circles){
  if distanceTo(clickPoint, c.getCenter())==c.getRadius){
  c.setSelected(true);
}
}

You can replace this:
  if distanceTo(clickPoint, c.getCenter())==c.getRadius){
to
   if Math.abs(distanceTo(clickPoint, c.getCenter())-c.getRadius))<1{

Play with different values of the last number (1) to see which make sense.
