<static> intersects(a, b, asSegment, result) → {Phaser.Point}

Checks for intersection between two lines. If asSegment is true it will check for segment intersection. If asSegment is false it will check for line intersection. Returns the intersection segment of AB and EF as a Point, or null if there is no intersection. Adapted from code by Keith Hair

Parameters
Name Type Argument Default Description
a Phaser.Line

The first Line to be checked.

b Phaser.Line

The second Line to be checked.

asSegment boolean <optional>
true

If true it will check for segment intersection, otherwise full line intersection.

result Phaser.Point <optional>

A Point object to store the result in, if not given a new one will be created.

Returns

The intersection segment of the two lines as a Point, or null if there is no intersection.

Source code: geom/Line.js (Line 546)

<static> intersectsPoints(a, b, e, f, asSegment, result) → {Phaser.Point}

Checks for intersection between two lines as defined by the given start and end points. If asSegment is true it will check for line segment intersection. If asSegment is false it will check for line intersection. Returns the intersection segment of AB and EF as a Point, or null if there is no intersection. Adapted from code by Keith Hair

Parameters
Name Type Argument Default Description
a Phaser.Point

The start of the first Line to be checked.

b Phaser.Point

The end of the first line to be checked.

e Phaser.Point

The start of the second Line to be checked.

The end of the second line to be checked.

asSegment boolean <optional>
true

If true it will check for segment intersection, otherwise full line intersection.

result Phaser.Point | object <optional>

A Point object to store the result in, if not given a new one will be created.

Returns

The intersection segment of the two lines as a Point, or null if there is no intersection.

Source code: geom/Line.js (Line 490)

<static> reflect(a, b) → {number}

Returns the reflected angle between two lines. This is the outgoing angle based on the angle of Line 1 and the normalAngle of Line 2.

Parameters
Name Type Description
a Phaser.Line

The base line.

b Phaser.Line

The line to be reflected from the base line.

Returns
number -

The reflected angle in radians.

Source code: geom/Line.js (Line 566)

clone(output) → {Phaser.Line}

Returns a new Line object with the same values for the start and end properties as this Line object.

Parameters
Name Type Description
output Phaser.Line

Optional Line object. If given the values will be set into the object, otherwise a brand new Line object will be created and returned.

Returns

The cloned Line object.

Source code: geom/Line.js (Line 272)

coordinatesOnLine(stepRate, results) → {array}

Using Bresenham's line algorithm this will return an array of all coordinates on this line. The start and end points are rounded before this runs as the algorithm works on integers.

Parameters
Name Type Argument Default Description
stepRate number <optional>
1

How many steps will we return? 1 = every coordinate on the line, 2 = every other coordinate, etc.

results array <optional>

The array to store the results in. If not provided a new one will be generated.

Returns
array -

An array of coordinates.

Source code: geom/Line.js (Line 214)

fromAngle(x, y, angle, length) → {Phaser.Line}

Sets this line to start at the given x and y coordinates and for the segment to extend at angle for the given length.

Parameters
Name Type Description
x number

The x coordinate of the start of the line.

y number

The y coordinate of the start of the line.

angle number

The angle of the line in radians.

length number

The length of the line in pixels.

Returns

This line object

Source code: geom/Line.js (Line 86)

fromSprite(startSprite, endSprite, useCenter) → {Phaser.Line}

Sets the line to match the x/y coordinates of the two given sprites. Can optionally be calculated from their center coordinates.

Parameters
Name Type Argument Default Description
startSprite Phaser.Sprite

The coordinates of this Sprite will be set to the Line.start point.

endSprite Phaser.Sprite

The coordinates of this Sprite will be set to the Line.start point.

useCenter boolean <optional>
false

If true it will use startSprite.center.x, if false startSprite.x. Note that Sprites don't have a center property by default, so only enable if you've over-ridden your Sprite with a custom class.

Returns

This line object

Source code: geom/Line.js (Line 63)

intersects(line, asSegment, result) → {Phaser.Point}

Checks for intersection between this line and another Line. If asSegment is true it will check for segment intersection. If asSegment is false it will check for line intersection. Returns the intersection segment of AB and EF as a Point, or null if there is no intersection.

The line to check against this one.

The line to check against this one.

boolean -

True if the point is on the line, false if not.

Picks a random point from anywhere on the Line segment and returns it.

Parameters
Name Type Argument Description
out Phaser.Point | object <optional>

A Phaser.Point, or any object with public x/y properties, that the values will be set in. If no object is provided a new Phaser.Point object will be created. In high performance areas avoid this by re-using an object.

Returns

An object containing the random point in its x and y properties.
