Hello everyone, I will probably have more questions, I 'm a total beginner in java graphics(I know java a little), and I would like to ask you, the first two integers what represent if not the width and height? I mean x and y. And the last ones in drawArc, what are they exactly? Thank you.

RE: draw3DRect, drawArc

From the [link]doc[/link]


x - the x coordinate of the upper-left corner of the arc to be drawn.
y - the y coordinate of the upper-left corner of the arc to be drawn.
width - the width of the arc to be drawn.
height - the height of the arc to be drawn.
startAngle - the beginning angle.
arcAngle - the angular extent of the arc, relative to the start angle.

Thank you so much! I didn't understand a few things, though. When we say the width and height of the arc, we mean the width and height of the parallelogram that contains the arc? And I don't understand the last angle, can you expaint it to me please?  

RE: draw3DRect, drawArc

Yes to the first question. For the second, take a look at this
