Constructor

Phaser. QuadTree

new QuadTree(x, y, width, height, maxObjects, maxLevels, level)

A QuadTree implementation. The original code was a conversion of the Java code posted to GameDevTuts. However I've tweaked it massively to add node indexing, removed lots of temp. var creation and significantly increased performance as a result. Original version at https://github.com/timohausmann/quadtree-js/

Parameters
Name Type Argument Default Description
x number

The top left coordinate of the quadtree.

y number

The top left coordinate of the quadtree.

width number

The width of the quadtree in pixels.

height number

The height of the quadtree in pixels.

maxObjects number <optional>
10

The maximum number of objects per node.

maxLevels number <optional>
4

The maximum number of levels to iterate to.

level number <optional>
0

Which level is this?

Public Methods

clear()

Clear the quadtree.

Source code: math/QuadTree.js (Line 295)

getIndex(rect) → {number}

Determine which node the object belongs to.

Parameters
Name Type Description
rect Phaser.Rectangle | object

The bounds in which to check.

Returns
number -

index - Index of the subnode (0-3), or -1 if rect cannot completely fit within a subnode and is part of the parent node.

populate(group)

Populates this quadtree with the children of the given Group. In order to be added the child must exist and have a body property.

Parameters
Name Type Description
group Phaser.Group

The Group to add to the quadtree.

populateHandler(sprite)

Handler for the populate method.

Parameters
Name Type Description
sprite Phaser.Sprite | object

The Sprite to check.

Source code: math/QuadTree.js (Line 115)

reset(x, y, width, height, maxObjects, maxLevels, level)

Resets the QuadTree.

Parameters
Name Type Argument Default Description
x number

The top left coordinate of the quadtree.

y number

The top left coordinate of the quadtree.

width number

The width of the quadtree in pixels.

height number

The height of the quadtree in pixels.

maxObjects number <optional>
10

The maximum number of objects per node.

maxLevels number <optional>
4

The maximum number of levels to iterate to.

level number <optional>
0

Which level is this?

retrieve(source) → {array}

Return all objects that could collide with the given Sprite or Rectangle.

Parameters
Name Type Description
source Phaser.Sprite | Phaser.Rectangle

The source object to check the QuadTree against. Either a Sprite or Rectangle.

Returns
array -
  • Array with all detected objects.
