tilemap_get_tile_height

Description

Using this function you can retrieve the height (in pixels) of each tile cell of the tilemap element. You give the tilemap element ID (which you get when you create a tilemap element using layer_tilemap_create() or when you use the function layer_tilemap_get_id()), and the function will return the tile set cell height.


Syntax:

tilemap_get_tile_height(tilemap_element_id);


Arguments:

Argument Description
tilemap_element_id The unique ID value of the tilemap element to get the tile cell height of


Returns:

Real


Example:

var lay_id = layer_get_id("Tiles_Walls");
var map_id = layer_tilemap_get_id(lay_id);
global.snap_x = tilemap_get_tile_width(map_id);
global.snap_y = tilemap_get_tile_height(map_id);

The above code uses the retrieved tilemap ID to get the tile cell width and height and use them to set two global variables.
