Sets the collider for a sprite.
A collider is an invisible circle or rectangle that can have any size or position relative to the sprite and which will be used to detect collisions and overlapping with other sprites, or the mouse cursor.
If the sprite is checked for collision, bounce, overlapping or mouse events a rectangle collider is automatically created from the width and height parameter passed at the creation of the sprite or the from the image dimension in case of animated sprites.
Often the image default rectangle collider is not appropriate for collision detection so you can set a smaller circular or rectangular collider and offset from the sprite's center.
var sprite = createSprite(200, 200); sprite.setAnimation("carrot_1"); sprite.scale = 4; sprite.setCollider("rectangle", 0, 0, 20, 80, -45); sprite.debug = true; drawSprites();
setCollider(type, xOffset, yOffset, width/radius, height, rotationOffset)
|type||String||The shape of the collider, "rectangle" or "circle".|
|xOffset||Number||The offset in the x-direction from the center of the sprite to the center of the collider. The default is 0.|
|yOffset||Number||The offset in the y-direction from the center of the sprite to the center of the collider. The default is 0.|
|width/radius||Number||The width of a rectangle collider or the radius of a circle collider. The default is determined by the size of the sprite.|
|height||Number||The height of a rectangle collider or the radius of a circle collider. The default is determined by the size of the sprite.|
|rotationOffset||Number||The clockwise rotation in degrees of the collider with respect to the sprite. The default is 0.|
No return value. Determines sprite collisions and sprite-mouse interactions.
sprite.debugto true so the sprite is shown with the outline of the collider, the depth, and center.
setCollider()is called for a sprite before it is scaled, the collider is not scaled. But if a sprite is first scaled and then the collider set, the scale is also applied to the collider.
