  • Method Details

    • isOpaque

      public abstract boolean isOpaque()
      Gets whether this Paint is completely opaque. An opaque paint is one that has no alpha component in any of its colors. It may be possible for a Paint to be opaque and yet return false, if it cannot be easily determined whether the paint is actually opaque. For example, the ImagePattern may not be able to cheaply determine its opacity.
      true if the Paint is opaque, false if it is not opaque or if it cannot be determined.
