Rectangle Widget

The rectangle widget is used to draw a rectangle (or rounded rectangle) on a slide. Remember that a square is just a rectangle whose height and width are the same.

Here's an example:

      - type: rectangle
        x: 200
        y: 200
        width: 200
        height: 200
        color: pink
      - type: rectangle
        x: 400
        y: 300
        width: 400
        height: 200
        corner_radius: 50
        corner_segments: 3
        color: yellow
      - type: rectangle
        x: 600
        y: 500
        width: 400
        height: 300
        corner_radius: 75
        color: red

Which results in the following:



type: rectangle


Rectangle widgets also have "common" widget settings for position, opacity, animations, color, style, etc. Those are not listed here, but are instead covered in common widget settings page.

Also remember that all widget settings can be controlled via widget styles, rather than you having to set every setting on every widget.

The following rectangle widget settings may be animated: x:, y:, width:, height:, color:, corner_radius:, opacity:, rotation:, and scale:.


The width of the rectangle, in pixels.


The height of the rectangle, in pixels.


Number value of the radius of the corners (in pixels). Default is 0 which means sharp square corners.


For rectangles with rounded corners (where corner_radius: is greater than 1), how many individual segments should make up the corner. The more segments, the smoother the corner is.

Default is 10.
