We are about to switch to a new forum software. Until then we have removed the registration on this forum.
Is there such a feature as mouse zones for different shapes?
For instance, you take a image mask and overlay it on top of the background.
Also, what about dynamic mouse zones that change over time?
What about intersecting mouse zones where two region are on top of each other and you have to choose between the two?
what about lasso mouse zones where you create your own using WYSIWYG?
is there a way to make the shapes clickable using an OOP methodology without too much code similar to actionscript? will this be a future feature? what about the concept of groups, etc.?
why isn't everything SVG and not pixel based?
"why isn't everything SVG and not pixel based?"
Because that's the way Processing was designed... SVG was a late addition to Processing, anyway.
To answer most of the other questions: Processing is a low-level, mostly bitmap-oriented, framework. It has no vector facilities like in ActionScript or JavaFX. If you want to see if a click happens in a shape, you have usually to create maps of the shapes, each with different colors, on an off-screen graphics, then see if the click happens on a given color, thus on a given shape. Low level, I said.
