Phaser . Physics . Matter . Sprite

A Matter Physics 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.

Constructor:

new Sprite(world, x, y, texture, [frame], [options])

Parameters:

name type arguments description
world Phaser.Physics.Matter.World

A reference to the Matter.World instance that this body belongs to.

x number

The horizontal position of this Game Object in the world.

y number

The vertical position of this Game Object in the world.

texture string | Phaser.Textures.Texture

The key, or instance of the Texture this Game Object will use to render with, as stored in the Texture Manager.

frame string | number <optional>

An optional frame from the Texture this Game Object is rendering with.

options Phaser.Types.Physics.Matter.MatterBodyConfig <optional>

An optional Body configuration object that is used to set initial Body properties on creation.

  • SCREEN
  • ERASE

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.

Focus
Focus
scrollFactorX: number
Focus
Focus

Description:

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.

state: number | string
Focus
Focus

Description:

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 change 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.

addToDisplayList([displayList])
Focus
Focus

Description:

Adds this Game Object to the given Display List.

If no Display List is specified, it will default to the Display List owned by the Scene to which this Game Object belongs.

A Game Object can only exist on one Display List at any given time, but may move freely between them.

If this Game Object is already on another Display List when this method is called, it will first be removed from it, before being added to the new list.

You can query which list it is on by looking at the Phaser.GameObjects.GameObject#displayList property.

If a Game Object isn't on any display list, it will not be rendered. If you just wish to temporarly disable it from rendering, consider using the setVisible method, instead.

Parameters:

name type arguments description
displayList Phaser.GameObjects.DisplayList | Phaser.GameObjects.Layer <optional>

The Display List to add to. Defaults to the Scene Display List.

Returns:
Description:

Focus
chain(key)
Focus
Focus

Description:

Sets an animation, or an array of animations, to be played immediately after the current one completes or stops.

The current animation must enter a 'completed' state for this to happen, i.e. finish all of its repeats, delays, etc, or have the stop method called directly on it.

An animation set to repeat forever will never enter a completed state.

You can chain a new animation at any point, including before the current one starts playing, during it, or when it ends (via its animationcomplete event).

Chained animations are specific to a Game Object, meaning different Game Objects can have different chained animations without impacting the animation they're playing.

Call this method with no arguments to reset all currently chained animations.

When playing an animation on a Sprite it will first check to see if it can find a matching key locally within the Sprite. If it can, it will play the local animation. If not, it will then search the global Animation Manager and look for it there.

Parameters:

name type description
key string | Array.<string> | Phaser.Animations.Animation | Array.<Phaser.Animations.Animation> | Phaser.Types.Animations.PlayAnimationConfig | Array.<Phaser.Types.Animations.PlayAnimationConfig>

The string-based key of the animation to play, or an Animation instance, or a PlayAnimationConfig object, or an array of them.

createBitmapMask([renderable])
Focus
Focus

Description:

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

Note: Bitmap Masks only work on WebGL. Geometry Masks work on both WebGL and Canvas.

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 arguments description
renderable Phaser.GameObjects.GameObject <optional>

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

Returns:
Description:

destroy([fromScene])
Focus
Focus

Description:

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 arguments Default description
fromScene boolean <optional> false

True if this Game Object is being destroyed by the Scene, false if not.

Focus
play(key, [ignoreIfPlaying])
Focus
Focus

Description:

Start playing the given animation on this Sprite.

Animations in Phaser can either belong to the global Animation Manager, or specifically to this Sprite.

The benefit of a global animation is that multiple Sprites can all play the same animation, without having to duplicate the data. You can just create it once and then play it on any Sprite.

The following code shows how to create a global repeating animation. The animation will be created from all of the frames within the sprite sheet that was loaded with the key 'muybridge':

var config = {
    key: 'run',
    frames: 'muybridge',
    frameRate: 15,
    repeat: -1
};

//  This code should be run from within a Scene:
this.anims.create(config);

However, if you wish to create an animation that is unique to this Sprite, and this Sprite alone, you can call the Animation.create method instead. It accepts the exact same parameters as when creating a global animation, however the resulting data is kept locally in this Sprite.

With the animation created, either globally or locally, you can now play it on this Sprite:

this.add.sprite(x, y).play('run');

Alternatively, if you wish to run it at a different frame rate, for example, you can pass a config object instead:

this.add.sprite(x, y).play({ key: 'run', frameRate: 24 });

When playing an animation on a Sprite it will first check to see if it can find a matching key locally within the Sprite. If it can, it will play the local animation. If not, it will then search the global Animation Manager and look for it there.

If you need a Sprite to be able to play both local and global animations, make sure they don't have conflicting keys.

See the documentation for the PlayAnimationConfig config object for more details about this.

Also, see the documentation in the Animation Manager for further details on creating animations.

Parameters:

name type arguments Default description
key string | Phaser.Animations.Animation | Phaser.Types.Animations.PlayAnimationConfig

The string-based key of the animation to play, or an Animation instance, or a PlayAnimationConfig object.

ignoreIfPlaying boolean <optional> false

If an animation is already playing then ignore this call.

Returns:
Description:

Focus
playAfterDelay(key, delay)
Focus
Focus

Description:

Waits for the specified delay, in milliseconds, then starts playback of the given animation.

If the animation also has a delay value set in its config, it will be added to the delay given here.

If an animation is already running and a new animation is given to this method, it will wait for the given delay before starting the new animation.

If no animation is currently running, the given one begins after the delay.

When playing an animation on a Sprite it will first check to see if it can find a matching key locally within the Sprite. If it can, it will play the local animation. If not, it will then search the global Animation Manager and look for it there.

Prior to Phaser 3.50 this method was called 'delayedPlay'.

Parameters:

name type description
key string | Phaser.Animations.Animation | Phaser.Types.Animations.PlayAnimationConfig

The string-based key of the animation to play, or an Animation instance, or a PlayAnimationConfig object.

delay number

The delay, in milliseconds, to wait before starting the animation playing.

playAfterRepeat(key, [repeatCount])
Focus
Focus

Description:

Waits for the current animation to complete the repeatCount number of repeat cycles, then starts playback of the given animation.

You can use this to ensure there are no harsh jumps between two sets of animations, i.e. going from an idle animation to a walking animation, by making them blend smoothly into each other.

If no animation is currently running, the given one will start immediately.

When playing an animation on a Sprite it will first check to see if it can find a matching key locally within the Sprite. If it can, it will play the local animation. If not, it will then search the global Animation Manager and look for it there.

Parameters:

name type arguments Default description
key string | Phaser.Animations.Animation | Phaser.Types.Animations.PlayAnimationConfig

The string-based key of the animation to play, or an Animation instance, or a PlayAnimationConfig object.

repeatCount number <optional> 1

Description:

Start playing the given animation on this Sprite, in reverse.

Animations in Phaser can either belong to the global Animation Manager, or specifically to this Sprite.

The benefit of a global animation is that multiple Sprites can all play the same animation, without having to duplicate the data. You can just create it once and then play it on any Sprite.

The following code shows how to create a global repeating animation. The animation will be created from all of the frames within the sprite sheet that was loaded with the key 'muybridge':

var config = {
    key: 'run',
    frames: 'muybridge',

    repeat: -1
};

//  This code should be run from within a Scene:
this.anims.create(config);

However, if you wish to create an animation that is unique to this Sprite, and this Sprite alone, you can call the Animation.create method instead. It accepts the exact same parameters as when creating a global animation, however the resulting data is kept locally in this Sprite.

With the animation created, either globally or locally, you can now play it on this Sprite:

this.add.sprite(x, y).playReverse('run');

Alternatively, if you wish to run it at a different frame rate, for example, you can pass a config object instead:

this.add.sprite(x, y).playReverse({ key: 'run', frameRate: 24 });

When playing an animation on a Sprite it will first check to see if it can find a matching key locally within the Sprite. If it can, it will play the local animation. If not, it will then search the global Animation Manager and look for it there.

removeFromDisplayList()
Focus
Focus

Description:

Removes this Game Object from the Display List it is currently on.

A Game Object can only exist on one Display List at any given time, but may move freely removed and added back at a later stage.

You can query which list it is on by looking at the Phaser.GameObjects.GameObject#displayList property.

If a Game Object isn't on any Display List, it will not be rendered. If you just wish to temporarly disable it from rendering, consider using the setVisible method, instead.

Returns:

removeFromUpdateList()
Focus
Focus

Description:

Removes this Game Object from the Scene's Update List.

When a Game Object is on the Update List, it will have its preUpdate method called every game frame. Calling this method will remove it from the list, preventing this.

Removing a Game Object from the Update List will stop most internal functions working. For example, removing a Sprite from the Update List will prevent it from being able to run animations.

Returns:
Description:

Focus
Focus
removeInteractive()
Focus
Focus

Description:

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.)

setBlendMode(value)
Focus
Focus

Description:

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:

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

Description:

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 arguments 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.

setData(key, [data])
Focus
Focus

Description:

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 arguments 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.
