Description

Position, rotation and scale of an object.

Every object in a scene has a Transform. It's used to store and manipulate the position, rotation and scale of the object. Every Transform can have a parent, which allows you to apply position, rotation and scale hierarchically. This is the hierarchy seen in the Hierarchy pane. They also support enumerators so you can loop through children using:

// Moves all transform children 10 units upwards!

for (var child : Transform in transform) { child.position += Vector3.up * 10.0; }
using UnityEngine;
using System.Collections;

public class ExampleClass : MonoBehaviour {
    void Example() {
        foreach (Transform child in transform) {
            child.position += Vector3.up * 10.0F;
        }
    }
}
import UnityEngine
import System.Collections

public class ExampleClass(MonoBehaviour):

	def Example() as void:
		for child as Transform in transform:
			child.position += (Vector3.up * 10.0F)

See Also: The component reference, Physics class.

Variables

childCount The number of children the Transform has.
eulerAngles The rotation as Euler angles in degrees.
forward The blue axis of the transform in world space.
hasChanged Has the transform changed since the last time the flag was set to 'false'?
localEulerAngles The rotation as Euler angles in degrees relative to the parent transform's rotation.
localPosition Position of the transform relative to the parent transform.
localRotation The rotation of the transform relative to the parent transform's rotation.
localScale The scale of the transform relative to the parent.
localToWorldMatrix Matrix that transforms a point from local space into world space (Read Only).
lossyScale The global scale of the object (Read Only).
parent The parent of the transform.
position The position of the transform in world space.
right The red axis of the transform in world space.
root Returns the topmost transform in the hierarchy.
rotation The rotation of the transform in world space stored as a Quaternion.
up The green axis of the transform in world space.
worldToLocalMatrix Matrix that transforms a point from world space into local space (Read Only).

Functions

DetachChildren Unparents all children.
Find Finds a child by name and returns it.
GetChild Returns a transform child by index.
GetSiblingIndex Gets the sibling index.
InverseTransformDirection Transforms a direction from world space to local space. The opposite of Transform.TransformDirection.
InverseTransformPoint Transforms position from world space to local space. The opposite of Transform.TransformPoint.
IsChildOf Is this transform a child of /parent/?
LookAt Rotates the transform so the forward vector points at /target/'s current position.
Rotate Applies a rotation of /eulerAngles.z/ degrees around the z axis, /eulerAngles.x/ degrees around the x axis, and /eulerAngles.y/ degrees around the y axis (in that order).
RotateAround Rotates the transform about axis passing through point in world coordinates by angle degrees.
SetAsFirstSibling Move the transform to the start of the local transfrom list.
SetAsLastSibling Move the transform to the end of the local transfrom list.
SetSiblingIndex Sets the sibling index.
TransformDirection Transforms direction from local space to world space.
TransformPoint Transforms position from local space to world space.
Translate Moves the transform in the direction and distance of translation.

Static Functions

Destroy Removes a gameobject, component or asset.

Instantiate Clones the object original and returns the clone.

Operators

bool Does the object exist?
operator != Compares if two objects refer to a different object.
operator == Compares if two objects refer to the same.
