Class: DynamicBitmapText

Phaser.GameObjects. DynamicBitmapText

BitmapText objects work by taking a texture file and an XML or JSON file that describes the font structure.

During rendering for each letter of the text is rendered to the display, proportionally spaced out and aligned to match the font structure.

Dynamic Bitmap Text objects are different from Static Bitmap Text in that they invoke a callback for each letter being rendered during the render pass. This callback allows you to manipulate the properties of each letter being rendered, such as its position, scale or tint, allowing you to create interesting effects like jiggling text, which can't be done with Static text. This means that Dynamic Text takes more processing time, so only use them if you require the callback ability they have.

BitmapText objects are less flexible than Text objects, in that they have less features such as shadows, fills and the ability to use Web Fonts, however you trade this flexibility for rendering speed. You can also create visually compelling BitmapTexts by processing the font texture in an image editor, applying fills and any other effects required.

To create multi-line text insert \r, \n or \r\n escape codes into the text string.

To create a BitmapText data files you need a 3rd party app such as:

BMFont (Windows, free): http://www.angelcode.com/products/bmfont/ Glyph Designer (OS X, commercial): http://www.71squared.com/en/glyphdesigner Littera (Web-based, free): http://kvazars.com/littera/

For most use cases it is recommended to use XML. If you wish to use JSON, the formatting should be equal to the result of converting a valid XML file through the popular X2JS library. An online tool for conversion can be found here: http://codebeautify.org/xmltojson

Type:
Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/GameObject.js (Line 38)

scrollFactorX :number

The horizontal scroll factor of this Game Object.

The scroll factor controls the influence of the movement of a Camera upon this Game Object.

When a camera scrolls it will change the location at which this Game Object is rendered on-screen. It does not change the Game Objects actual position values.

A value of 1 means it will move exactly in sync with a camera. A value of 0 means it will not move at all, even if the camera moves. Other values control the degree to which the camera movement is mapped to this Game Object.

Please be aware that scroll factor values other than 1 are not taken in to consideration when calculating physics collisions. Bodies always collide based on their world position, but changing the scroll factor is a visual adjustment to where the textures are rendered, which can offset them from physics bodies if not accounted for in your code.

Type:
  • number
Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Default Value:
  • 1
Source: src/gameobjects/components/ScrollFactor.js (Line 16)

scrollFactorY :number

The vertical scroll factor of this Game Object.

The scroll factor controls the influence of the movement of a Camera upon this Game Object.

When a camera scrolls it will change the location at which this Game Object is rendered on-screen. It does not change the Game Objects actual position values.

A value of 1 means it will move exactly in sync with a camera. A value of 0 means it will not move at all, even if the camera moves. Other values control the degree to which the camera movement is mapped to this Game Object.

Source: src/gameobjects/bitmaptext/dynamic/DynamicBitmapText.js (Line 79)

state :integer|string

The current state of this Game Object.

Phaser itself will never modify this value, although plugins may do so.

Use this property to track the state of a Game Object during its lifetime. For example, it could move from a state of 'moving', to 'attacking', to 'dead'. The state value should be an integer (ideally mapped to a constant in your game code), or a string. These are recommended to keep it light and simple, with fast comparisons. If you need to store complex data about your Game Object, look at using the Data Component instead.

createBitmapMask( [renderable])

Creates and returns a Bitmap Mask. This mask can be used by any Game Object, including this one.

To create the mask you need to pass in a reference to a renderable Game Object. A renderable Game Object is one that uses a texture to render with, such as an Image, Sprite, Render Texture or BitmapText.

If you do not provide a renderable object, and this Game Object has a texture, it will use itself as the object. This means you can call this method to create a Bitmap Mask from any renderable Game Object.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
renderable Phaser.GameObjects.GameObject <optional>

A renderable Game Object that uses a texture, such as a Sprite.

Since: 3.6.2
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/components/Mask.js (Line 80)
Returns:

This Bitmap Mask that was created.

Type
Phaser.Display.Masks.BitmapMask

createGeometryMask( [graphics])

Creates and returns a Geometry Mask. This mask can be used by any Game Object, including this one.

To create the mask you need to pass in a reference to a Graphics Game Object.

If you do not provide a graphics object, and this Game Object is an instance of a Graphics object, then it will use itself to create the mask.

This means you can call this method to create a Geometry Mask from any Graphics Game Object.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
graphics Phaser.GameObjects.Graphics <optional>

A Graphics Game Object. The geometry within it will be used as the mask.

Since: 3.6.2
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/components/Mask.js (Line 110)
Returns:

This Geometry Mask that was created.

Type
Phaser.Display.Masks.GeometryMask

destroy( [fromScene])

Destroys this Game Object removing it from the Display List and Update List and severing all ties to parent resources.

Also removes itself from the Input Manager and Physics Manager if previously enabled.

Use this to remove a Game Object from your game if you don't ever plan to use it again. As long as no reference to it exists within your own code it should become free for garbage collection by the browser.

If you just want to temporarily disable an object then look at using the Game Object Pool instead of destroying it, as destroyed objects cannot be resurrected.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
fromScene boolean <optional>
false

Is this Game Object being destroyed as the result of a Scene shutdown?

Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/GameObject.js (Line 545)

getData(key)

Retrieves the value for the given key in this Game Objects Data Manager, or undefined if it doesn't exist.

You can also access values via the values object. For example, if you had a key called gold you can do either:

sprite.getData('gold');

Or access the value directly:

sprite.data.values.gold;

You can also pass in an array of keys, in which case an array of values will be returned:

sprite.getData([ 'gold', 'armor', 'health' ]);

This approach is useful for destructuring arrays in ES6.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
key string | Array.<string>

The key of the value to retrieve, or an array of keys.

Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/GameObject.js (Line 333)

removeInteractive()

If this Game Object has previously been enabled for input, this will queue it for removal, causing it to no longer be interactive. The removal happens on the next game step, it is not immediate.

The Interactive Object that was assigned to this Game Object will be destroyed, removed from the Input Manager and cleared from this Game Object.

If you wish to re-enable this Game Object at a later date you will need to re-create its InteractiveObject by calling setInteractive again.

If you wish to only temporarily stop an object from receiving input then use disableInteractive instead, as that toggles the interactive state, where-as this erases it completely.

If you wish to resize a hit area, don't remove and then set it as being interactive. Instead, access the hitarea object directly and resize the shape being used. I.e.: sprite.input.hitArea.setSize(width, height) (assuming the shape is a Rectangle, which it is by default.)

setAlpha( [topLeft] [, topRight] [, bottomLeft] [, bottomRight])

Set the Alpha level of this Game Object. The alpha controls the opacity of the Game Object as it renders. Alpha values are provided as a float between 0, fully transparent, and 1, fully opaque.

If your game is running under WebGL you can optionally specify four different alpha values, each of which correspond to the four corners of the Game Object. Under Canvas only the topLeft value given is used.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
topLeft number <optional>
1

The alpha value used for the top-left of the Game Object. If this is the only value given it's applied across the whole Game Object.

topRight number <optional>

The alpha value used for the top-right of the Game Object. WebGL only.

bottomLeft number <optional>

The alpha value used for the bottom-left of the Game Object. WebGL only.

bottomRight number <optional>

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.DynamicBitmapText

setBlendMode(value)

Sets the Blend Mode being used by this Game Object.

This can be a const, such as Phaser.BlendModes.SCREEN, or an integer, such as 4 (for Overlay)

Under WebGL only the following Blend Modes are available:

  • ADD
  • MULTIPLY
  • SCREEN
  • ERASE (only works when rendering to a framebuffer, like a Render Texture)

Canvas has more available depending on browser support.

You can also create your own custom Blend Modes in WebGL.

Blend modes have different effects under Canvas and WebGL, and from browser to browser, depending on support. Blend Modes also cause a WebGL batch flush should it encounter a new blend mode. For these reasons try to be careful about the construction of your Scene and the frequency in which blend modes are used.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
value string | Phaser.BlendModes

The BlendMode value. Either a string or a CONST.

Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/components/BlendMode.js (Line 79)

Since: 3.11.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/bitmaptext/static/BitmapText.js (Line 212)
Returns:

This BitmapText Object.

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.DynamicBitmapText

setData(key [, data])

Allows you to store a key value pair within this Game Objects Data Manager.

If the Game Object has not been enabled for data (via setDataEnabled) then it will be enabled before setting the value.

If the key doesn't already exist in the Data Manager then it is created.

sprite.setData('name', 'Red Gem Stone');

You can also pass in an object of key value pairs as the first argument:

sprite.setData({ name: 'Red Gem Stone', level: 2, owner: 'Link', gold: 50 });

To get a value back again you can call getData:

sprite.getData('gold');

Or you can access the value directly via the values property, where it works like any other variable:

sprite.data.values.gold += 50;

When the value is first set, a setdata event is emitted from this Game Object.

If the key already exists, a changedata event is emitted instead, along an event named after the key. For example, if you updated an existing key called PlayerLives then it would emit the event changedata-PlayerLives. These events will be emitted regardless if you use this method to set the value, or the direct values setter.

Please note that the data keys are case-sensitive and must be valid JavaScript Object property strings. This means the keys gold and Gold are treated as two unique values within the Data Manager.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
key string | object

The key to set the value for. Or an object of key value pairs. If an object the data argument is ignored.

data * <optional>

The value to set for the given key. If an object is provided as the key this argument is ignored.

setDepth(value)

The depth of this Game Object within the Scene.

The depth is also known as the 'z-index' in some environments, and allows you to change the rendering order of Game Objects, without actually moving their position in the display list.

The depth starts from zero (the default value) and increases from that point. A Game Object with a higher depth value will always render in front of one with a lower value.

Setting the depth will queue a depth sort event within the Scene.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
value integer

The depth of this Game Object.

setFrame(frame [, updateSize] [, updateOrigin])

Sets the frame this Game Object will use to render with.

The Frame has to belong to the current Texture being used.

It can be either a string or an index.

Calling setFrame will modify the width and height properties of your Game Object. It will also change the origin if the Frame has a custom pivot point, as exported from packages like Texture Packer.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
frame string | integer

The name or index of the frame within the Texture.

updateSize boolean <optional>
true

Should this call adjust the size of the Game Object?

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.DynamicBitmapText

setInteractive( [shape] [, callback] [, dropZone])

Pass this Game Object to the Input Manager to enable it for Input.

Input works by using hit areas, these are nearly always geometric shapes, such as rectangles or circles, that act as the hit area for the Game Object. However, you can provide your own hit area shape and callback, should you wish to handle some more advanced input detection.

If no arguments are provided it will try and create a rectangle hit area based on the texture frame the Game Object is using. If this isn't a texture-bound object, such as a Graphics or BitmapText object, this will fail, and you'll need to provide a specific shape for it to use.

You can also provide an Input Configuration Object as the only argument to this method.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
shape Phaser.Types.Input.InputConfiguration | any <optional>

Either an input configuration object, or a geometric shape that defines the hit area for the Game Object. If not specified a Rectangle will be used.

callback Phaser.Types.Input.HitAreaCallback <optional>

A callback to be invoked when the Game Object is interacted with. If you provide a shape you must also provide a callback.

dropZone boolean <optional>
false

Should this Game Object be treated as a drop zone target?

setLetterSpacing( [spacing])

Sets the letter spacing between each character of this Bitmap Text. Can be a positive value to increase the space, or negative to reduce it. Spacing is applied after the kerning values have been set.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
spacing number <optional>
0

The amount of horizontal space to add between each character.

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.DynamicBitmapText

setMask(mask)

Sets the mask that this Game Object will use to render with.

The mask must have been previously created and can be either a GeometryMask or a BitmapMask. Note: Bitmap Masks only work on WebGL. Geometry Masks work on both WebGL and Canvas.

If a mask is already set on this Game Object it will be immediately replaced.

Masks are positioned in global space and are not relative to the Game Object to which they are applied. The reason for this is that multiple Game Objects can all share the same mask.

Masks have no impact on physics or input detection. They are purely a rendering component that allows you to limit what is visible during the render pass.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
mask Phaser.Display.Masks.BitmapMask | Phaser.Display.Masks.GeometryMask

The mask this Game Object will use when rendering.

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.DynamicBitmapText

setScrollFactor(x [, y])

Sets the scroll factor of this Game Object.

The scroll factor controls the influence of the movement of a Camera upon this Game Object.

When a camera scrolls it will change the location at which this Game Object is rendered on-screen. It does not change the Game Objects actual position values.

A value of 1 means it will move exactly in sync with a camera. A value of 0 means it will not move at all, even if the camera moves. Other values control the degree to which the camera movement is mapped to this Game Object.

Please be aware that scroll factor values other than 1 are not taken in to consideration when calculating physics collisions. Bodies always collide based on their world position, but changing the scroll factor is a visual adjustment to where the textures are rendered, which can offset them from physics bodies if not accounted for in your code.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
x number

The horizontal scroll factor of this Game Object.

y number <optional>
x

The vertical scroll factor of this Game Object. If not set it will use the x value.

setState(value)

Sets the current state of this Game Object.

Phaser itself will never modify the State of a Game Object, although plugins may do so.

For example, a Game Object could change from a state of 'moving', to 'attacking', to 'dead'. The state value should typically be an integer (ideally mapped to a constant in your game code), but could also be a string. It is recommended to keep it light and simple. If you need to store complex data about your Game Object, look at using the Data Component instead.

Returns:

This Game Object instance.

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.DynamicBitmapText

setTint( [topLeft] [, topRight] [, bottomLeft] [, bottomRight])

Sets an additive tint on this Game Object.

The tint works by taking the pixel color values from the Game Objects texture, and then multiplying it by the color value of the tint. You can provide either one color value, in which case the whole Game Object will be tinted in that color. Or you can provide a color per corner. The colors are blended together across the extent of the Game Object.

To modify the tint color once set, either call this method again with new values or use the tint property to set all colors at once. Or, use the properties tintTopLeft, tintTopRight,tintBottomLeftandtintBottomRight` to set the corner color values independently.

To remove a tint call clearTint.

To swap this from being an additive tint to a fill based tint set the property tintFill to true.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
topLeft integer <optional>
0xffffff

The tint being applied to the top-left of the Game Object. If no other values are given this value is applied evenly, tinting the whole Game Object.

topRight integer <optional>

The tint being applied to the top-right of the Game Object.

bottomLeft integer <optional>

The tint being applied to the bottom-left of the Game Object.

bottomRight integer <optional>

The tint being applied to the bottom-right of the Game Object.

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.DynamicBitmapText

setTintFill( [topLeft] [, topRight] [, bottomLeft] [, bottomRight])

Sets a fill-based tint on this Game Object.

Unlike an additive tint, a fill-tint literally replaces the pixel colors from the texture with those in the tint. You can use this for effects such as making a player flash 'white' if hit by something. You can provide either one color value, in which case the whole Game Object will be rendered in that color. Or you can provide a color per corner. The colors are blended together across the extent of the Game Object.

To modify the tint color once set, either call this method again with new values or use the tint property to set all colors at once. Or, use the properties tintTopLeft, tintTopRight,tintBottomLeftandtintBottomRight` to set the corner color values independently.

To remove a tint call clearTint.

To swap this from being a fill-tint to an additive tint set the property tintFill to false.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
topLeft integer <optional>
0xffffff

The tint being applied to the top-left of the Game Object. If not other values are given this value is applied evenly, tinting the whole Game Object.

topRight integer <optional>

The tint being applied to the top-right of the Game Object.

bottomLeft integer <optional>

The tint being applied to the bottom-left of the Game Object.

bottomRight integer <optional>

The tint being applied to the bottom-right of the Game Object.
