The index of the path the calling instance is following.



Returns: ID


All resources in GameMaker: Studio have a unique identifying number, and the path_index is a read-only variable that holds the index value for a given path resource. If the instance has no path assigned, the variable will be set to -1.


if path_index = -1
   path_start(pth_enemy3, 4, path_action_reverse, 0);

The above code checks to see if a path has been assigned to the instance, and if not it starts a new path (assigning it to the path_index at the same time).
