Graph IDEBasic Graphics ► Rectangle

A rectangle is defined as four points at the intersection of two horizontal and two vertical lines. It can be transformed into a parallelogram by a linear transformation, such as a rotation and then flattening. It also has associated attributes, such as corner radii, so it can be an oval, and other graphic attributes. The figure below shows some examples of a rectangle.

Some standard operations are itemized below.
