Return

boolean:

BeginCollision(Libraries.Interface.Item item)

This action is used to indicate that two items have just begun colliding. When two Items collide, the BeginCollision action should be called on both of them, with the other item passed as a parameter to the action. Note that this action does nothing by default, but classes that inherit from Item may override it.

Example Code

use Libraries.Interface.Item

        Item collider1
        Item collider2
        collider1:BeginCollision(collider2)
        collider2:BeginCollision(collider

Return

boolean:

Compare(Libraries.Language.Object object)

This action compares two object hash codes and returns an integer. The result is larger if this hash code is larger than the object passed as a parameter, smaller, or equal. In this case, -1 means smaller, 0 means equal, and 1 means larger. This action was changed in Quorum 7 to return an integer, instead of a CompareResult object, because the previous implementation was causing efficiency issues.

Example Code

Object o
        Object t
        integer result = o:Compare(t) //1 (larger), 0 (equal), or -1 (smalle

Parameters

Return

integer: The Compare result, Smaller, Equal, or Larger.

ComputeDistance(Libraries.Compute.Vector2 point, integer childIndex, Libraries.Compute.Vector2 normalOut)

This action computes the distance of the passed point from the collision shape attached to this item. This action is used internally and users should not need to use this action.

Parameters

Return

number: The distance of the point from the collision shape of this it

Contains(number containsX, number containsY)

This action tests if a point in global x,y coordinates is contained inside this Item2D. The global coordinates are considered to be the x and y coordinates of this Item plus its offsetX and offsetY values.

Example Code

use Libraries.Interface.Item2D

        Item2D item
        item:SetPosition(50, 50)
        item:SetWidth(100)
        item:SetHeight(50)
        boolean value = item:Contains(125, 7

Parameters

Return

boolean: Whether or not the point is contained in this Item.

Copy()

Return

Libraries.Interface.Views.ControlView

CopyTextureRegion(Libraries.Game.Graphics.TextureRegion region, integer x, integer y, integer width, integer height)

This action copies the information from a given TextureRegion at the given coordinates to the given width and height onto this TextureRegio

Parameters

CopyTextureRegion(Libraries.Game.Graphics.TextureRegion region)

This action copies the information from the given TextureRegion into this TextureRegio

Parameters

CreateNodes(Libraries.Game.Collision.BroadphaseCollision2D broadphase, Libraries.Game.Collision.PhysicsPosition2D transform)

This action creates the nodes for this item for the broadphase collision. This action is needed in order to add the item to the collision detection system. This action is used internally and users should not need to use this action.

Parameters

DestroyNodes(Libraries.Game.Collision.BroadphaseCollision2D broadphase)

This action destroys the nodes for this item for the broadphase collision, essentially removing it from the collision detection system. This action is used internally and users should not need to use this action.

Parameters

Dispose()

The Dispose action will dispose the currently loaded texture. This frees up computer resources, but the texture will no longer be usable. Note that multiple Drawables can use the same texture, and disposing of it will get rid of the texture information not just for this Drawable, but any Drawable that is using the texture. Dispose should be used when a texture will not be used again. Here are some guide lines for when you should or should not dispose a Drawable: 1. If the Drawable was loaded using Load(text) or Load(File), then the Drawable created new texture data when it was loaded. This can be safely disposed, unless you copied the Drawable, e.g. with Load(Drawable). 2. If the Drawable was loaded as a shape, e.g. with the LoadRectangle action, the Drawable created new texture data when it loaded. It can be safely disposed, unless you copied the Drawable, e.g. with Load(Drawable). 3. If the Drawable was loaded using a Texture or a TextureRegion, such as with the Load(Texture) action, then it is NOT safe to dispose this if there are any other Drawables that are still in use which were also loaded with the same Texture. If there are no other Drawables that were loaded with the Texture, it is safe to dispose. If a texture was used to load multiple Drawables, it is good practice to use the Dispose action directly from the Texture once all of the Drawables are no longer in use. 4. If the Drawable was loaded with an ImageSheet, you should NEVER dispose the Drawable's texture. All Drawables loaded from an ImageSheet use the same Texture data, so disposing of any Drawable from an ImageSheet will delete the ImageSheet's texture data. If you ever wish to dispose an ImageSheet's texture data, it is good practice to use the ImageSheet's Dispose action.

Example Code

use Libraries.Game.Graphics.Drawable
        use Libraries.Game.Game

        class Main is Game

            action Main
                StartGame()

                // When we no longer need the Drawable, we can remove it from
                // the Game, and then Dispose it to clean up the memory it used.
                Remove(drawable)

Draw(Libraries.Game.Graphics.Painter2D painter)

The Draw action is used to perform custom drawing on this Item and its children. This is only called during the Game engine's draw phase if this Item has enabled custom drawing via the SetCustomDrawing action. This is an advanced feature, and shouldn't be used by most users. If custom drawing is enabled, this action should be overriden -- if it isn't, the Item will attempt to provide default rendering for itself, its view, and its children, without regard to depth buffering. This action is responsible for instructing the provided Painter on how to draw this item, the view, and its children, and in what order to do s

When this value is true, the Item is responsible for determining its rendering via the Draw(Painter2D) action -- if this action isn't overridden, the Item and its children won't be drawn. This is an advanced feature only necessary for complex custom components, and most users will not need to use this functionality.

Return

boolean: Whether or not this Item is currently using custom drawing rule

IsEmpty()

This action returns whether or not any items are contained in this Item.

Example Code

use Libraries.Interface.Item2D

This action sets the scale of this Item2D, causing the vertices of the item to be calculated based on a scaled percentage of the width and height. The default scaling values are 1.0, or 100% of the Item's width and height. This action will increase or decrease the scale of the object from the center, and update the Item's x,y coordinates to reflect the new bottom-left corner of the Item.

Example Code

use Libraries.Interface.Item2D
        
        Item2D myItem
        myItem:SetSize(100, 200)
        myItem:SetScaleFromCenter(1.2

Parameters

SetScaleFromCenter(number newX, number newY)

This action sets separate scaling values for the x and y planes on this Item2D. This will cause the vertices of this Item to be calculated based on a scaled percentage of the width and height. The default scaling values are 1.0, or 100% of the Item's width and height. This action will increase or decrease the scale of the object from the center, and update the Item's x,y coordinates to reflect the new bottom-left corner of the Item.

Example Code

use Libraries.Interface.Item2D
        
        Item2D myItem

        myItem:SetScaleFromCenter(1.5, 0.7

Parameters

SetScaleX(number scaleX)

This action sets the scaling value of the x plane on this Item2D. This will cause the vertices of this Item to be calculated based on a scaled percentage of the width. The default scaling values are 1.0, or 100% of the Item's width and height.

Example Code

use Libraries.Interface.Item2D
        
        Item2D myItem
        myItem:SetSize(100, 200)
        myItem:SetScaleX(1.

Parameters

SetScaleY(number scaleY)

This action sets the scaling value of the y plane on this Item2D. This will cause the vertices of this Item to be calculated based on a scaled percentage of the height. The default scaling values are 1.0, or 100% of the Item's width and height.

Parameters

SetTransform(Libraries.Compute.Vector2 position, number angle)

This action is used internally by the physics system to set the position of this item in the physics world. This action is used internally and users users should not need to use this action.

Parameters

SetTransform(Libraries.Game.Collision.PhysicsPosition2D transform)

This action sets the position of the item in physical space. This action is used internally and should not be used by users to set the position of this item on the screen.

Parameters

SetTransform0(Libraries.Game.Collision.PhysicsPosition2D transform)

This action sets the position of the item in physics space from the previous frame. This action is used internally and users should not need to use this action.

Parameters

SetUnmovable()

This action destroys the nodes for this item for the broadphase collision, essentially removing it from the collision detection system. This action is used internally and users should not need to use this action.

SetUpdateTransform(boolean flag)

This item is used to test whether a passed point is on the collision shape of this item.

Example Code

use Libraries.Interface.Drawable
    use Libraries.Compute.Vector2

    Drawable circle
    circle:LoadFilledCircle(30)

    boolean result = circle:TestPoint(poin

Parameters

SetVertex(integer index, number value)

This action sets a value of one of the internal vertices of this Item2D. This action is primarily for internal use, and most users will never need to use this action directl

Parameters

SetView2D(Libraries.Interface.Views.View2D content)

The IsClipping action returns true if pixel clipping is enabled, or false if it is disabled. If it is enabled, when the Item and its children are drawn as part of the QueueForDrawing action, any pixels that would be drawn outside of the unrotated dimensions of the Item are not rendered. In other words, the Item will only draw inside the exact rectangle formed by its x, y position and its width and height.

Parameters

SetWidth(number newWidth)

This action will set the width of the Item2D.

Example Code

use Libraries.Interface.Item2D
        Item2D myItem
