part_system_drawit

Draws the particles in a given system.

Syntax:

part_system_drawit(ind);


Argument Description
ind The index of the particle system to draw the particles of.


Returns: N/A


Description

With this function you can force a particle system to draw all the current particles on the screen. If part_system_automatic_draw is switched off then this function will show the particles when used in the draw event of an instance, or it can be used when the drawing target is set to a surface (using surface_set_target) to draw the particles in the system to that surface.


Example:

if surface_exists(surf)
   {
   surface_set_target(surf);
   part_system_drawit();
   surface_reset_target();
   }

The above code checks to see if the surface indexed in the variable "surf" exists, and if it does it then sets the drawing target to the surface, draws the particles and then resets the drawing target so all normal drawing appears on the screen once more.
