Members

alive :boolean

A useful flag to control if the Game Object is alive or dead.

This is set automatically by the Health components damage method should the object run out of health. Or you can toggle it via your game code.

This property is mostly just provided to be used by your game - it doesn't effect rendering or logic updates. However you can use Group.getFirstAlive in conjunction with this property for fast object pooling and recycling.

Inherited From:
Default Value:
  • true
Source - gameobjects/components/LifeSpan.js, line 50

alpha :Number

The opacity of the object.

Inherited From:
Source - pixi/display/DisplayObject.js, line 46

angle :number

The angle property is the rotation of the Game Object 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 you can use the property rotation instead. Working in radians is slightly faster as it doesn't have to perform any calculations.

Inherited From:
Source - gameobjects/components/Angle.js, line 29

animations :Phaser.AnimationManager

If the Game Object is enabled for animation (such as a Phaser.Sprite) this is a reference to its AnimationManager instance. Through it you can create, play, pause and stop animations.

Inherited From:
Source - gameobjects/components/Core.js, line 186
See:

autoCull :boolean

A Game Object with autoCull set to true will check its bounds against the World Camera every frame. If it is not intersecting the Camera bounds at any point then it has its renderable property set to false. This keeps the Game Object alive and still processing updates, but forces it to skip the render step entirely.

This is a relatively expensive operation, especially if enabled on hundreds of Game Objects. So enable it only if you know it's required, or you have tested performance and find it acceptable.

Inherited From:
Source - gameobjects/components/AutoCull.js, line 28

blendMode :Number

The blend mode to be applied to the graphic shape. Apply a value of PIXI.blendModes.NORMAL to reset the blend mode.

Inherited From:
Default Value:
  • PIXI.blendModes.NORMAL;
Source - pixi/primitives/Graphics.js, line 61

body :Phaser.Physics.Arcade.Body|Phaser.Physics.P2.Body|Phaser.Physics.Ninja.Body|null

body is the Game Objects physics body. Once a Game Object is enabled for physics you access all associated properties and methods via it.

By default Game Objects won't add themselves to any physics system and their body property will be null.

To enable this Game Object for physics you need to call game.physics.enable(object, system) where object is this object and system is the Physics system you are using. If none is given it defaults to Phaser.Physics.Arcade.

You can alternatively call game.physics.arcade.enable(object), or add this Game Object to a physics enabled Group.

Important: Enabling a Game Object for P2 or Ninja physics will automatically set its anchor property to 0.5, so the physics body is centered on the Game Object.

If you need a different result then adjust or re-create the Body shape offsets manually or reset the anchor after enabling physics.

Type:
Inherited From:
Source - gameobjects/components/PhysicsBody.js, line 91

<readonly> bottom :number

The sum of the y and height properties. This is the same as y + height - offsetY.

Inherited From:
Source - gameobjects/components/Bounds.js, line 110

boundsPadding :Number

The bounds' padding used for bounds calculation.

Inherited From:
Source - pixi/primitives/Graphics.js, line 96

cameraOffset :Phaser.Point

The x/y coordinate offset applied to the top-left of the camera that this Game Object will be drawn at if fixedToCamera is true.

The values are relative to the top-left of the camera view and in addition to any parent of the Game Object on the display list.

Inherited From:
Source - gameobjects/components/FixedToCamera.js, line 86

checkWorldBounds :boolean

If this is set to true the Game Object checks if it is within the World bounds each frame.

When it is no longer intersecting the world bounds it dispatches the onOutOfBounds event.

If it was previously out of bounds but is now intersecting the world bounds again it dispatches the onEnterBounds event.

It also optionally kills the Game Object if outOfBoundsKill is true.

When checkWorldBounds is enabled it forces the Game Object to calculate its full bounds every frame.

This is a relatively expensive operation, especially if enabled on hundreds of Game Objects. So enable it only if you know it's required, or you have tested performance and find it acceptable.

Inherited From:
Source - gameobjects/components/InWorld.js, line 92

<readonly> children :Array.<DisplayObject>

[read-only] The array of children of this container.

Inherited From:
Internal:
  • This member is internal (protected) and may be modified or removed in the future.
Source - gameobjects/components/Core.js, line 160

debug :boolean

A debug flag designed for use with Game.enableStep.

Inherited From:
Source - gameobjects/components/Core.js, line 211

<readonly> destroyPhase :boolean

As a Game Object runs through its destroy method this flag is set to true, and can be checked in any sub-systems or plugins it is being destroyed from.

Inherited From:
Source - gameobjects/components/Destroy.js, line 22

events :Phaser.Events

All Phaser Game Objects have an Events class which contains all of the events that are dispatched when certain things happen to this Game Object, or any of its components.

Inherited From:
Source - gameobjects/components/Core.js, line 178
See:

exists :boolean

Controls if this Game Object is processed by the core game loop. If this Game Object has a physics body it also controls if its physics body is updated or not. When exists is set to false it will remove its physics body from the physics world if it has one. It also toggles the visible property to false as well.

Setting exists to true will add its physics body back in to the physics world, if it has one. It will also set the visible property to true.

Inherited From:
Source - gameobjects/components/Core.js, line 277

fillAlpha :Number

The alpha value used when filling the Graphics object.

Inherited From:
Source - pixi/primitives/Graphics.js, line 18

filterArea :Rectangle

The area the filter is applied to like the hitArea this is used as more of an optimisation rather than figuring out the dimensions of the displayObject each frame you can set this rectangle

Inherited From:
Source - pixi/display/DisplayObject.js, line 164

filters :Array.<Filter>

Sets the filters for the displayObject. IMPORTANT: This is a webGL only feature and will be ignored by the Canvas renderer.

To remove filters simply set this property to 'null'.

You cannot have a filter and a multiply blend mode active at the same time. Setting a filter will reset this objects blend mode to NORMAL.

Type:
  • Array.<Filter>
Inherited From:
Source - pixi/display/DisplayObject.js, line 307

fixedToCamera :boolean

A Game Object that is "fixed" to the camera uses its x/y coordinates as offsets from the top left of the camera during rendering.

The values are adjusted at the rendering stage, overriding the Game Objects actual world position.

The end result is that the Game Object will appear to be 'fixed' to the camera, regardless of where in the game world the camera is viewing. This is useful if for example this Game Object is a UI item that you wish to be visible at all times regardless where in the world the camera is.

The offsets are stored in the cameraOffset property.

Note that the cameraOffset values are in addition to any parent of this Game Object on the display list.

Be careful not to set fixedToCamera on Game Objects which are in Groups that already have fixedToCamera enabled on them.

Inherited From:
Source - gameobjects/components/FixedToCamera.js, line 56

<readonly> fresh :boolean

A Game Object is considered fresh if it has just been created or reset and is yet to receive a renderer transform update. This property is mostly used internally by the physics systems, but is exposed for the use of plugins.

Inherited From:
Source - gameobjects/components/Core.js, line 241

game :Phaser.Game

A reference to the currently running Game.

Inherited From:
Source - gameobjects/components/Core.js, line 145

height :Number

The height of the displayObjectContainer, setting this will actually modify the scale to achieve the value set

Inherited From:
Source - pixi/display/DisplayObjectContainer.js, line 61

hitArea :Rectangle|Circle|Ellipse|Polygon

This is the defined area that will pick up mouse / touch events. It is null by default. Setting it is a neat way of optimising the hitTest function that the interactionManager will use (as it will not need to hit test all the children)

Type:
  • Rectangle | Circle | Ellipse | Polygon
Inherited From:
Source - pixi/display/DisplayObject.js, line 62

<readonly> inCamera :boolean

Checks if the Game Objects bounds intersect with the Game Camera bounds. Returns true if they do, otherwise false if fully outside of the Cameras bounds.

Inherited From:
Source - gameobjects/components/AutoCull.js, line 37

input :Phaser.InputHandler|null

The Input Handler for this Game Object.

By default it is disabled. If you wish this Game Object to process input events you should enable it with: inputEnabled = true.

After you have done this, this property will be a reference to the Phaser InputHandler.

Type:
Inherited From:
Source - gameobjects/components/InputEnabled.js, line 24

inputEnabled :boolean

By default a Game Object won't process any input events. By setting inputEnabled to true a Phaser.InputHandler is created for this Game Object and it will then start to process click / touch events and more.

You can then access the Input Handler via this.input.

Note that Input related events are dispatched from this.events, i.e.: events.onInputDown.

If you set this property to false it will stop the Input Handler from processing any more input events.

Inherited From:
Source - gameobjects/components/InputEnabled.js, line 38

<readonly> inWorld :boolean

Checks if the Game Objects bounds are within, or intersect at any point with the Game World bounds.

Inherited From:
Source - gameobjects/components/InWorld.js, line 114

isMask :Boolean

Whether this shape is being used as a mask.

Inherited From:
Source - pixi/primitives/Graphics.js, line 88

key :string|Phaser.RenderTexture|Phaser.BitmapData|Phaser.Video|PIXI.Texture

The key of the image or texture used by this Game Object during rendering. If it is a string it's the string used to retrieve the texture from the Phaser Image Cache. It can also be an instance of a RenderTexture, BitmapData, Video or PIXI.Texture. If a Game Object is created without a key it is automatically assigned the key __default which is a 32x32 transparent PNG stored within the Cache. If a Game Object is given a key which doesn't exist in the Image Cache it is re-assigned the key __missing which is a 32x32 PNG of a green box with a line through it.

Type:
Inherited From:
Source - gameobjects/components/Core.js, line 196

<readonly> left :number

The left coordinate of the Game Object. This is the same as x - offsetX.

Inherited From:
Source - gameobjects/components/Bounds.js, line 59

lifespan :number

The lifespan allows you to give a Game Object a lifespan in milliseconds.

Once the Game Object is 'born' you can set this to a positive value.

It is automatically decremented by the millisecond equivalent of game.time.physicsElapsed each frame. When it reaches zero it will call the kill method.

Very handy for particles, bullets, collectibles, or any other short-lived entity.

Source - pixi/primitives/Graphics.js, line 26

mask :PIXI.Graphics

Sets a mask for the displayObject. A mask is an object that limits the visibility of an object to the shape of the mask applied to it. In PIXI a regular mask must be a PIXI.Graphics object. This allows for much faster masking in canvas as it utilises shape clipping. To remove a mask, set this property to null.

Inherited From:
Source - pixi/display/DisplayObject.js, line 282

name :string
