RPoint¶
Usage¶
# robofab manual
# Point object
# usage examples
contour = CurrentGlyph()[0]
print contour.points[0]
from random import randint
for p in contour.points:
p.x += randint(10,10)
p.y += randint(10,10)
contour.update()
< RPoint for AFont.A[0][0] >
Description¶
RPoint
is perhaps the smallest object in RoboFab objects. It represents one single point with a particular coordinate in a contour. It is used to access offcurve and oncurve points alike. It’s cousin, bPoint also provides access to incoming and outgoing bcps. RPoint
is exclusively only one single point.
Understanding Contours and outlines¶
The way outline data is organised in RoboFab, and how the various objects relate is described here: understanding contours.
Attributes¶

x
¶
The x
coordinate of this point.

y
¶
The y
coordinate of this point.

type
¶
The type
of this point.

selected
¶
Boolean for selection state, i.e. True
or False
.
Methods¶

copy
()¶
Return a deepcopy of the object.

move
((x, y))¶
Move the anchor of the bPoint
to (x,y)
. The relative coordinates of the bcpIn
and bcpOut
will remain the same, which means that in fact, they move the same distance.

round
()¶
Round the coordinates to whole integers.

select
(state=True)¶
Select this point.

transform
(matrix)¶
Transform this point. Use a Transform matrix object to mess with the point.
