Constructor

Phaser. Button

new Button(game, x, y, key, callback, callbackContext, overFrame, outFrame, downFrame, upFrame)

Create a new Button object. A Button is a special type of Sprite that is set-up to handle Pointer events automatically.

The four states a Button responds to are:

  • 'Over' - when the Pointer moves over the Button. This is also commonly known as 'hover'.
  • 'Out' - when the Pointer that was previously over the Button moves out of it.
  • 'Down' - when the Pointer is pressed down on the Button. I.e. touched on a touch enabled device or clicked with the mouse.
  • 'Up' - when the Pointer that was pressed down on the Button is released again.

A different texture/frame and activation sound can be specified for any of the states.

Frames can be specified as either an integer (the frame ID) or a string (the frame name); the same values that can be used with a Sprite constructor.

Public Properties

alive : boolean

A useful boolean to control if the Image is alive or dead (in terms of your gameplay, it doesn't effect rendering).

Inherited From
Default Value
  • true
Source code: gameobjects/Image.js, line 86

alpha : number

The opacity of the object.

Inherited From
Source code: pixi/display/DisplayObject.js, line 65

anchor : PIXI.Point

The anchor sets the origin point of the texture. The default is 0,0 this means the texture's origin is the top left Setting than anchor to 0.5,0.5 means the textures origin is centered Setting the anchor to 1,1 would mean the textures origin points will be the bottom right corner

Inherited From
Source code: pixi/display/Sprite.js, line 22

angle : number

Indicates the rotation of the Image, in degrees, from its original orientation. Values from 0 to 180 represent clockwise rotation; values from 0 to -180 represent counterclockwise rotation. Values outside this range are added to or subtracted from 360 to obtain a value within the range. For example, the statement player.angle = 450 is the same as player.angle = 90. If you wish to work in radians instead of degrees use the property Image.rotation instead. Working in radians is also a little faster as it doesn't have to convert the angle. The angle of this Image in degrees.

Inherited From
Source code: gameobjects/Image.js, line 741

animations : Phaser.AnimationManager

This manages animations of the sprite. You can modify animations through it (see Phaser.AnimationManager)

Inherited From
Source code: gameobjects/Image.js, line 63

autoCull : boolean

Should this Image be automatically culled if out of range of the camera? A culled sprite has its renderable property set to 'false'. Be advised this is quite an expensive operation, as it has to calculate the bounds of the object every frame, so only enable it if you really need it. A flag indicating if the Image should be automatically camera culled or not.

Inherited From
Default Value
  • false
Source code: gameobjects/Image.js, line 96

blendMode : number

The blend mode to be applied to the sprite. Set to PIXI.blendModes.NORMAL to remove any blend mode.

So if this Image was in a Group that has x: 200, then this will be added to the cameraOffset.x Set to true to fix this Image to the Camera at its current world coordinates.

crop(rect, copy)

Crop allows you to crop the texture used to display this Image. Cropping takes place from the top-left of the Image and can be modified in real-time by providing an updated rectangle object. The rectangle object given to this method can be either a Phaser.Rectangle or any object so long as it has public x, y, width and height properties. Please note that the rectangle object given is not duplicated by this method, but rather the Image uses a reference to the rectangle. Keep this in mind if assigning a rectangle in a for-loop, or when cleaning up for garbage collection.

Parameters
Name Type Argument Default Description
rect Phaser.Rectangle

The Rectangle used during cropping. Pass null or no parameters to clear a previously set crop rectangle.

setScaleMinMax(minX, minY, maxX, maxY)

Sets the scaleMin and scaleMax values in one call. These values are used to limit how far this Image will scale (either up or down) based on its parent. For example if this Image has a minScale value of 1 and its parent has a scale value of 0.5, the 0.5 will be ignored and the scale value of 1 will be used. By using these values you can carefully control how Images deal with responsive scaling.

If only one parameter is given then that value will be used for both scaleMin and scaleMax: setScaleMinMax(1) = scaleMin.x, scaleMin.y, scaleMax.x and scaleMax.y all = 1

If only two parameters are given the first is set as scaleMin.x and y and the second as scaleMax.x and y: setScaleMinMax(0.5, 2) = scaleMin.x and y = 0.5 and scaleMax.x and y = 2

If you wish to set scaleMin with different values for x and y then either modify Image.scaleMin directly, or pass null for the maxX and maxY parameters.

Call setScaleMinMax(null) to clear both the scaleMin and scaleMax values.

Parameters
Name Type Description
minX number | null

The minimum horizontal scale value this Image can scale down to.

minY number | null

The minimum vertical scale value this Image can scale down to.

maxX number | null

The maximum horizontal scale value this Image can scale up to.

maxY number | null

The maximum vertical scale value this Image can scale up to.
