detecting near edge of layout

Post » Sat Apr 01, 2017 1:33 pm

I am wondering if there's a way to detect the layout edge? Anyone got a quick tip?

I see we have is on screen and is outside layout, but no touching layout edge? Seems like a really simple feature that should be built in.

You could compare width and height of this viewport size.

If a mouse position as x is greater than width of viewport (window is 854 x 480, in that case youre comparing with 854) you can detect right of edge.

Else if a mouse position as x is lesser than zero to get negative width of the layout, you can detect left of edge


Also it can apply to y of top and bottom

Put an invisible 4x4 px sprites at the edges of your layouts.

There's the "Bound to Layout" behavior, to keep objects in layout, but agreed having something to reference to see if you're near the edge would be handy.
