Returns

Rectangle

Inherited from

ParticleGroupNode.getBoundingRect


getDescendants

getDescendants(): Node[]

Returns the descendants of this node.

A descendant is node that has this node as an ancestor. Consider for example the following tree of nodes:

  • NodeA
    • NodeB
      • NodeD
      • NodeE
    • NodeC

If we ask for the descendants of NodeA we'll get back: [NodeB, NodeD, NodeE, NodeC]

Returns

Node[]

A list of this node's descendants

Inherited from

ParticleGroupNode.getDescendants


getExtras

getExtras(): any

Returns any extra data that this object needs to save during serialization.

In some cases an object might need to save some extra data without necessarily this extra data being part of its state (e.g. the AssetsLibrary of a Scene). In these cases subclasses can re-implement this method and return the data required.

The default implementation returns undefined meaning that no extra data needs to be saved during serialization.

Returns

any

Inherited from

ParticleGroupNode.getExtras


getFilteredDescendants

getFilteredDescendants<T>(cls): T[]

Returns the descendants of this node that are instances of the class cls

Type parameters

NameType

getLocalTransform

getLocalTransform(): Matrix

Returns a copy of this node's (local) transformation matrix.

Returns

Matrix

getSceneBoundingRect

getSceneBoundingRect(): Rectangle

Returns the bounding rect of this node in scene coordinates, by combining getSceneTransform() with getBoundingRect().

Returns the Node's position in Scene coordinates.

Returns

IPoint

Inherited from

getSceneTransform

getSceneTransform(): Matrix

Returns a copy of this node's scene transformation matrix. Use this matrix to map coordinates from this node's local coordinate system to the scene's coordinate system. To map coordinates from the scene, you must first invert the returned matrix.

Unlike getLocalTransform(), which returns only the local transformation, this function includes the node's (and any parents') position, and all the transfomation properties.

Returns

Matrix

Inherited from

ParticleGroupNode.getSceneTransform


getShape

getShape(): Polygon

Returns the shape of this Node in local coordinates.

Note that the returned shape might be empty.

The shape of a Node is used for many things, including boolean operations and selection.

The default implementation calls getBoundingRect() to return a simple rectangular shape, but subclasses can reimplement this function to return a more accurate shape for non-rectangular items.

Returns

Polygon

Inherited from

ParticleGroupNode.getShape

Snap Points

Parameters

NameType
snapModenumber

Returns

ISnapPoint[]

Inherited from

getState

getState(minified?): any

Returns this object's state

The object's state is an object containing key/value pairs corresponding to this object's properties. For example:

{
id: "Ssba4ch5ruok",
name: "Circle",
radius: 2,
// ...
}

To avoid including properties that are currently in their default value you can set minified = true when calling getState.

Note that read-only properties are not part of the object's state (with the exception of the id)

Parameters

NameTypeDefault valueDescription
