Class: Sprite

Phaser.GameObjects. Sprite

A Sprite Game Object.

A Sprite Game Object is used for the display of both static and animated images in your game.
Sprites can have input events and physics bodies. They can also be tweened, tinted, scrolled
and animated.

The main difference between a Sprite and an Image Game Object is that you cannot animate Images.
As such, Sprites take a fraction longer to process and have a larger API footprint due to the Animation
Component. If you do not require animation then you can safely use Images to replace Sprites in all cases.

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 of which blend modes
are used.

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
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.

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

its parent Container. It then iterates up through all of the parent containers until it hits the
root of the display list (which is index 0 in the returned array).

Used internally by the InputPlugin but also useful if you wish to find out the display depth of
this Game Object and all of its ancestors.

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>

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

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 of 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 78)
Returns:

This Game Object instance.

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.Sprite

setCrop( [x] [, y] [, width] [, height])

Applies a crop to a texture based Game Object, such as a Sprite or Image.

The crop is a rectangle that limits the area of the texture frame that is visible during rendering.

Cropping a Game Object does not change its size, dimensions, physics body or hit area, it just
changes what is shown when rendered.

The crop coordinates are relative to the texture frame, not the Game Object, meaning 0 x 0 is the top-left.

Therefore, if you had a Game Object that had an 800x600 sized texture, and you wanted to show only the left
half of it, you could call setCrop(0, 0, 400, 600).

It is also scaled to match the Game Object scale automatically. Therefore a crop rect of 100x50 would crop
an area of 200x100 when applied to a Game Object that had a scale factor of 2.

You can either pass in numeric values directly, or you can provide a single Rectangle object as the first argument.

Call this method with no arguments at all to reset the crop, or toggle the property isCropped to false.

You should do this if the crop rectangle becomes the same size as the frame itself, as it will allow
the renderer to skip several internal calculations.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
x number | Phaser.Geom.Rectangle <optional>

The x coordinate to start the crop from. Or a Phaser.Geom.Rectangle object, in which case the rest of the arguments are ignored.

y number <optional>

The y coordinate to start the crop from.

width number <optional>

The width of the crop rectangle in pixels.

height number <optional>

The height of the crop rectangle in pixels.

Since: 3.11.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/components/TextureCrop.js (Line 48)
Returns:

This Game Object instance.

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.Sprite

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 Description
key string | object

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

data *

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

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.Sprite

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?

updateOrigin boolean <optional>
true

Should this call adjust the origin of the Game Object?

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.Sprite

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.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 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?

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.Sprite

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.

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.

setSize(width, height)

Sets the internal size of this Game Object, as used for frame or physics body creation.

This will not change the size that the Game Object is rendered in-game.
For that you need to either set the scale of the Game Object (setScale) or call the
setDisplaySize method, which is the same thing as changing the scale but allows you
to do so by giving pixel values.

If you have enabled this Game Object for input, changing the size will not change the
size of the hit area. To do this you should adjust the input.hitArea object directly.

Parameters:

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.Sprite

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.Sprite

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.
