Returns the texture coordinates of the sprite within the texture page as an array.


sprite_get_uvs(sprite, subimage);

Argument Description
sprite The index of the sprite to use.
subimage The sub-image of the sprite to use.

Returns: Array


This function returns an array with the UV coordinates for the texture of the sprite sub-image on the texture page, filling in the array with the following values: [0] = left, [1] = top, [2] = right and [3] = bottom. This value can then be used in other draw functions, particularly in general 3D and some of the 2D primitive functions, as well as the Shader functions.

NOTE: This function will not work with vector sprites or skeleton animation sprites.


var tex = sprite_get_uvs(sprite, 0);
tex_left = tex[0];
tex_top = tex[1];
tex_right = tex[2];
tex_bottom = tex[3];

The above code will store the UV coordinates for the given sprite in a local array and then assign the values to instance variables.
