Constructor

Rectangle(geometry[, properties[, options]])

Creates a rectangle instance.

Parameters:

ParameterDefault valueDescription
geometry *
[no-highlight[

* Mandatory parameter/option.

]no-highlight]

Type: Number[][]|Object|IRectangleGeometry

Coordinates of two opposite corners, a hash object with geometery parameters, or a reference to the rectangle geometry object.

properties

Type: Object|IDataManager

Rectangle data. Can be set as a class instance implementing the IDataManager interface, or as a hash. When options are set to default values, the following data fields are interpreted by a geo object:

  • hintContent - Content of the rectangle's popup hint.
  • balloonContent - Content of the rectangle's balloon.
  • balloonContentHeader - Content of the rectangle balloon title.
  • balloonContentBody - Content of the main part of the rectangle's balloon.
  • balloonContentFooter - Content of the lower part of the rectangle's balloon.
The balloonContent field is a shortcut for the balloonContentBody field, but if they are both set simultaneously, balloonContentBody takes priority. You can also add your own custom fields to the rectangle data and use them, for example, in the balloon layout.

options

Type: Object

Rectangle options. Using this parameter, you can set options for the rectangle itself, as well as for its parts:

  • Options for the rectangle's balloon with the balloon prefix.
  • Options for the rectangle's popup hint with the hint prefix.
  • Geometry options can be set without a prefix. See the description of the IGeometry class for the geometry.Rectangle geometry.

options.cursor "pointer"

Type: String

Type of cursor over a rectangle.

options.draggable false

Type: Boolean

Checks whether the rectangle can be dragged.

options.fill true

Type: Boolean

Whether the shape is filled.

options.fillColor "0066ff99"

Type: String

Fill color.

options.fillImageHref

Type: String

Background image. When this option is enabled in stretch mode, the "fillColor" value is ignored.

options.fillMethod 'stretch'

Type: String

Type of background fill. Accepts one of two values:

  • stretch - The background image stretches to fit the size of the overlay.
  • tile - The background image is repeated, without changing its size. This is similar to background-repeat in CSS. It can be used for filling a shape with a template.

options.fillOpacity 1

Type: Number

Fill transparency.

options.hasBalloon true

Type: Boolean

Checks if the rectangle has the "balloon" field.

options.hasHint true

Type: Boolean

Checks if the rectangle has the "hint" field.

options.interactiveZIndex false

Type: Boolean

Enables automatically modifying the z-index of the rectangle depending on its state.

options.interactivityModel "default#geoObject"

Type: String

Interactivity model. Available keys and their values are listed in the description of interactivityModel.storage.

options.opacity 1

Type: Number

Transparency.

options.openBalloonOnClick true

Type: Boolean

Checks whether to show the balloon when the rectangle is clicked on.

options.openEmptyBalloon false

Type: Boolean

Checks whether to show an empty balloon when the rectangle is clicked on.

options.openEmptyHint false

Type: Boolean

Checks whether to show an empty hint when the mouse pointer hovers over the rectangle.

options.openHintOnHover true

Type: Boolean

Checks whether to show an empty hint when the mouse pointer hovers over the rectangle.

options.outline true

Type: Boolean

Whether the shape has an outline.

options.pane "places"

Type: String

The key of the pane where the rectangle overlay is placed.

options.rectangleOverlay "default#rectangle"

Type: String|Function

Key identifier from overlay.storage or the overlay class. The generator function accepts three parameters:

And returns vow.Promise.

options.strokeColor "0066ffff"

Type: String|String[]

Color of the line or outline. You can set multiple values for a multistroke outline.

options.strokeOpacity 1

Type: Number|Number[]

Transparency of the line or outline. You can set multiple values for a multistroke outline.

options.strokeStyle

Type: String|Object|String[]|Object[]

Style of the line or outline. You can set multiple values for a multistroke outline.

options.strokeWidth 1

Type: Number|Number[]

Thickness of the line or outline. You can set multiple values for a multistroke outline.

options.syncOverlayInit false

Type: Boolean

Enables synchronously adding an overlay to the map. By default, overlays are added to the map asynchronously to prevent the browser from hanging when adding a large number of geo objects. However, adding asynchronously does not allow accessing the overlay immediately after adding a rectangle to the map.

options.useMapMarginInDragging true

Type: Boolean

When an object is dragged to the edge of the map, the map center changes automatically. Whether to use map margins when automatically shifting the map center with map.margin.Manager.

options.visible true

Type: Boolean

Checks the visibility of the rectangle.

options.zIndex

Type: Number

The z-index of the rectangle in the normal state. Lowest priority.

options.zIndexActive

Type: Number

The z-index of the rectangle with an opened balloon. Highest priority.

options.zIndexDrag

Type: Number

The z-index of the rectangle while dragging.

options.zIndexHover

Type: Number

The z-index of a rectangle when the mouse pointer is hovering over it.

* Mandatory parameter/option.

Example:

// Creating a geodesic circle with a radius of 1000 kilometers.
var circle = new ymaps.Circle([[50, 50], 1000000], {}, {
    draggable: true
});
// Adding the circle to the map.
myMap.geoObjects.add(circle);

// Creating a rectangle based on the rectangle's boundaries.
var rectangle = new ymaps.Rectangle(circle.geometry.getBounds(), {}, {
    fill: false,
    coordRendering: "boundsPath",
    strokeWidth: 4
});
// Adding the rectangle to the map.
myMap.geoObjects.add(rectangle);

// Updating the rectangle's coordinates when changing the rectangle geometry.
circle.geometry.events.add("change", function (event) {
    this.geometry.setCoordinates(event.get("target").getBounds());
}, rectangle);
