Draws part of a sprite at a given position.


draw_sprite_part(sprite, subimg, left, top, width, height, x, y);

Argument Description
sprite The index of the sprite to draw.
subimg The subimg (frame) of the sprite to draw (image_index or -1 correlate to the current frame of animation in the object).
left The x position on the sprite of the top left corner of the area to draw.
top The y position on the sprite of the top left corner of the area to draw.
width The width of the area to draw.
height The height of the area to draw.
x The x coordinate of where to draw the sprite.
y The y coordinate of where to draw the sprite.

Returns: N/A


With this function you can draw part of any sprite at a given position within the room. As with draw_sprite you can specify a sprite and a sub-image for drawing, then you must give the relative coordinates within the sprite of the area to select for drawing. This means that a left position of 0 and a top position of 0 would be the top left corner of the sprite and all further coordinates should be taken from that position. The image below shows an example of how this works:

NOTE: When drawing with this function, the sprite x offset and y offset are ignored and the sprite part will be drawn with the top left corner at the specified x / y position in the room.

NOTE: This function is only useful for bitmap sprites and will not work with SWF or JSON (Spine) sprites.


draw_sprite_part(sprite_index, image_index, 4, 0, sprite_width-16, sprite_height-16, x, y );

This will draw the instances assigned sprite (sprite_index) and its current frame of animation (image_index), however it will shave a 4px margin off the width on both sides, and an 8 pixel margin off the height from the bottom of the original 24x24 pixel sprite.
