physics_particle_count


Description

This function will return the number of particles that are active in a physics enabled room.


Syntax:

physics_particle_count()


Returns:

Real


Example:

if physics_particle_count() < physics_particle_get_max_count()
    {
    physics_particle_create(0, x, y, 0, 0, c_white, 1, 1)
    }

The above code will check to see if there are less than the maximum number of permitted particles in the room, and if so create one more.
