# Gdk.Rectangle¶

## Fields¶

Name Type Access Description
height `int` r/w
width `int` r/w
x `int` r/w
y `int` r/w

## Methods¶

 `equal` (rect2) `intersect` (src2) `union` (src2)

## Details¶

class `Gdk.``Rectangle`

Defines the position and size of a rectangle. It is identical to `cairo.RectangleInt`.

`equal`(rect2)[source]
Parameters: rect2 (`Gdk.Rectangle`) – a `Gdk.Rectangle` `True` if the rectangles are equal. `bool`

Checks if the two given rectangles are equal.

New in version 3.20.

`intersect`(src2)[source]
Parameters:src2 (`Gdk.Rectangle`) – a `Gdk.Rectangle`
Returns:`True` if the rectangles intersect.
dest: return location for the intersection of self and src2, or `None`
Return type:(`bool`, dest: `Gdk.Rectangle`)

Calculates the intersection of two rectangles. It is allowed for dest to be the same as either self or src2. If the rectangles do not intersect, dest’s width and height is set to 0 and its x and y values are undefined. If you are only interested in whether the rectangles intersect, but not in the intersecting area itself, pass `None` for dest.

`union`(src2)[source]
Parameters: src2 (`Gdk.Rectangle`) – a `Gdk.Rectangle` return location for the union of self and src2 dest: `Gdk.Rectangle`

Calculates the union of two rectangles. The union of rectangles self and src2 is the smallest rectangle which includes both self and src2 within it. It is allowed for dest to be the same as either self or src2.

Note that this function does not ignore ‘empty’ rectangles (ie. with zero width or height).
