     The code shows how to make a user defined Square Shape, with different coloured sides and different specified side lengths and line thicknesses. Also there are left, right, shift left, shift right and middle mouse button click features which when used have slightly different features (as shown by red mouse click dot in screen shot). I fixed the fill feature, as shown o the screen capture. You have the option of filling all one colour or borders with a different colour. Enjoy.

Forgot to mention: Left clicking on the palette changes the "All line colour". To select individual line colours, click on the desired checkbox and the Right mouse click on the palette. To change 2 or more side colours, select the required checkboxes and then right mouse click on the palette. After clicking on the palette the checkboxes become unselected. Also each time a checkbox is clicked, there is a count of how many checkboxes are selected.

"as shown by red mouse click dot in screen shot" is not really there in the updated screen shot. Sorry but forgot to update the new screen shot with the red dots that indicate the mouse click positions.

Would be great to draw them at different angles or rotate to the desired angle .

Thanks for the rotation suggestion Kenneth. Would need to consider where the rotation point is, which may be different for different mouse (left, middle, right) clicks. I am thinking of converting this to a dynamically drawn square soon.
