  • 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.

Default: 1
Inherited from: Phaser.GameObjects.Components.ScrollFactor#scrollFactorX
Since: 3.0.0
Focus
Focus
scrollFactorY: number

Description:

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.

Please be aware that scroll factor values other than 1 are not taken in to consideration when calculating physics collisions.

Focus
Focus
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>

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:

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.)

setCullPadding([paddingX], [paddingY])
Focus
Focus

Description:

When a Camera culls the tiles in this layer it does so using its view into the world, building up a rectangle inside which the tiles must exist or they will be culled. Sometimes you may need to expand the size of this 'cull rectangle', especially if you plan on rotating the Camera viewing the layer. Do so by providing the padding values. The values given are in tiles, not pixels. So if the tile width was 32px and you set paddingX to be 4, it would add 32px x 4 to the cull rectangle (adjusted for scale)

Parameters:

name type arguments Default description
paddingX number <optional> 1

The amount of extra horizontal tiles to add to the cull check padding.

paddingY number <optional> 1

The amount of extra vertical tiles to add to the cull check padding.

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 t
