public method Distance(collider: Collider2D): ColliderDistance2D;
public ColliderDistance2D Distance(Collider2D collider);


collider A collider used to calculate the minimum separation against this collider.


ColliderDistance2D The minimum separation of collider and this collider.


Calculates the minimum separation of this collider against another collider.

A valid collider must be provided for the ColliderDistance2D to be valid. If there are any problems with collider or this Collider2D such as they are disabled or do not contain any collision shapes then the separation will be invalid as indicated by ColliderDistance2D.isValid.
