Guide Section: Diagramming | EASAP Tree: DIAGRAM LIST

POLYGON is used to produce polygons on a DIAGRAM specified by a LIST of vertices set in the Points: parameter. A POLYGON will be required for creating triangles, quadrilaterals that are not rectangles, pentagons, and so forth. A POLYGON will always be an enclosed shape—line between the last and first vertices will be drawn automatically (ie. you don’t have to repeat the first vertex to force closure).

Essential Parameters:
Points:List of point coordinates representing polygon vertices: x1, y1, x2, y2, x3, y3, … Three points are minimum requirement. DORs and Expressions allowed
Optional Parameters:
Show if:Logical expression, if FALSE then shape NOT shown else default→TRUE
Fill Style:Select fill style from list (default→Opaque, Black)
Line Style:Select line style from list. default→Transparent
Transform:Select one or more transforms from list. Order selected is order applied.
Delimiter:Character to act as the delimiter in DORs in Points: parameter.

Tip: The use of DORs in the Points: parameter referencing LIST's containing X and Y coordinate values is a powerful way to define a POLYGON. These list objects are typically generated using INTERLEAVE.
