sprite_get_uvs


Syntax:

sprite_get_uvs(sprite, subimage);

Argument Description
sprite The index of the sprite to use.
subimage The sub-image of the sprite to use.


Returns

Array (1D, 8 elements)


Description

This function returns an array with the UV coordinates and other data for the texture of the sprite sub-image on the texture page. The function returns an array with the following 8 elements:

This array can then be used in other draw functions, particularly when working in 3D or using the 2D primitive functions, as well as when working with the Shader functions.

NOTE: This function will not work with vector sprites or skeleton animation sprites.


Example:

var tex = sprite_get_uvs(sprite, 0);
tex_left = tex[0];
tex_top = tex[1];
tex_right = tex[2];
tex_bottom = tex[3];

The above code will store the UV coordinates for the given sprite in a local array and then assign the values to instance variables.
