Hi there!

I am just getting started with Java2D (more accurately, "restarted" after an 8 year break from Java ) and have hit an interesting behaviour when playing with Java2D. Here is the code in question:



The code above should draw an rectangle when the Render is added to a JFrame, however ends up drawing a square with with the bottom edge misaligned (see attachment).

The issue goes away if I force BasicStroke(1.1f), however feel that this is a bit of a hack.

Why does the miss-alignment happen and what is the "best practise fix" for this?


Thanks!
Tian

hi Tian,

I do not see any mis-alignment on my screen. Of course, 10 by 10 is a bit small for my eyes to see
it sharp, but as said, I see nothing wrong. And when I enlarge the rectangle (say 100 x 100 or
200 x 200), and/or use a BasicStroke(7), I see nothing wrong.

If you enlarge your rectangle as well, do you still see this effect?

Greetz,
Piet

Hello Piet,

The size of the rectangle seems to be irrelevant, and the misalignment does not happen with stroke width > 1. Furthermore the misalignment goes away after resizing the JFrame too...

I've distilled the code down to the following:



Strangely enough, the code renders fine with jdk1.7.0_67 (see attachment) and the misalignment only seems to happen with jdk1.8.0_20 (see attachment).

(You may need to zoom into the images to see the pixel that's sticking out)

hi Tian,

indeed, I tested it on jdk1.7.0_25.
On my pc, I have Win XP 32bit, so at the moment I cannot test it on java8.
I'll have a look later this evening, using my wife's laptop.

Greetz,
Piet

hi Tian,

well, I tried it on 1.8_20, but I still see nothing strange here. I ran a loop,
creating lots of rectangles, but they were all perfect. I also tried several
StrokeWidths, again nothing abnormal.

Greetz,
Piet
