Name  vertex() 


Examples  beginShape(POINTS); vertex(30, 20); vertex(85, 20); vertex(85, 75); vertex(30, 75); endShape(); // Drawing vertices in 3D requires P3D // or OPENGL as a parameter to size() size(100, 100, P3D); beginShape(POINTS); vertex(30, 20, 50); vertex(85, 20, 50); vertex(85, 75, 50); vertex(30, 75, 50); endShape(); noStroke(); PImage a = loadImage("arch.jpg"); beginShape(); texture(a); // "arch.jpg" is 100x100 pixels in size so // the values 0 and 100 are used for the // parameters "u" and "v" to map it directly // to the vertex points vertex(10, 20, 0, 0); vertex(80, 5, 100, 0); vertex(95, 90, 100, 100); vertex(40, 95, 0, 100); endShape(); 

Description  All shapes are constructed by connecting a series of vertices. vertex() is used to specify the vertex coordinates for points, lines, triangles, quads, and polygons and is used exclusively within the beginShape() and endShape() function. Drawing a vertex in 3D using the z parameter requires the P3D or OPENGL parameter in combination with size as shown in the above example. This function is also used to map a texture onto the geometry. The texture() function declares the texture to apply to the geometry and the u and v coordinates set define the mapping of this texture to the form. By default, the coordinates used for u and v are specified in relation to the image's size in pixels, but this relation can be changed with textureMode(). 

Syntax  vertex(x, y); vertex(x, y, z); vertex(x, y, u, v); vertex(x, y, z, u, v);
