Renders a Sprite for 2D graphics.

no example available in JavaScript
//This example outputs Sliders that control the red green and blue elements of a sprite's color
//Attach this to a GameObject and attach a SpriteRenderer component

using UnityEngine;

public class Example : MonoBehaviour { SpriteRenderer m_SpriteRenderer; //The Color to be assigned to the Renderer’s Material Color m_NewColor;

//These are the values that the Color Sliders return float m_Red, m_Blue, m_Green;

void Start() { //Fetch the SpriteRenderer from the GameObject m_SpriteRenderer = GetComponent<SpriteRenderer>(); //Set the GameObject's Color quickly to a set Color (blue) m_SpriteRenderer.color = Color.blue; }

void OnGUI() { //Use the Sliders to manipulate the RGB component of Color //Use the Label to identify the Slider GUI.Label(new Rect(0, 30, 50, 30), "Red: "); //Use the Slider to change amount of red in the Color m_Red = GUI.HorizontalSlider(new Rect(35, 25, 200, 30), m_Red, 0, 1);

//The Slider manipulates the amount of green in the GameObject GUI.Label(new Rect(0, 70, 50, 30), "Green: "); m_Green = GUI.HorizontalSlider(new Rect(35, 60, 200, 30), m_Green, 0, 1);

//This Slider decides the amount of blue in the GameObject GUI.Label(new Rect(0, 105, 50, 30), "Blue: "); m_Blue = GUI.HorizontalSlider(new Rect(35, 95, 200, 30), m_Blue, 0, 1);

//Set the Color to the values gained from the Sliders m_NewColor = new Color(m_Red, m_Green, m_Blue);

//Set the SpriteRenderer to the Color defined by the Sliders m_SpriteRenderer.color = m_NewColor; } }


adaptiveModeThresholdThe current threshold for Sprite Renderer tiling.
colorRendering color for the Sprite graphic.
drawModeThe current draw mode of the Sprite Renderer.
flipXFlips the sprite on the X axis.
flipYFlips the sprite on the Y axis.
maskInteractionSpecifies how the sprite interacts with the masks.
sizeProperty to set/get the size to render when the SpriteRenderer.drawMode is set to SpriteDrawMode.Sliced.
spriteThe Sprite to render.
tileModeThe current tile mode of the Sprite Renderer.

Inherited Members


gameObjectThe game object this component is attached to. A component is always attached to a game object.
tagThe tag of this game object.
transformThe Transform attached to this GameObject.
hideFlagsShould the object be hidden, saved with the scene or modifiable by the user?
nameThe name of the object.
allowOcclusionWhenDynamicControls if dynamic occlusion culling should be performed for this renderer.
boundsThe bounding volume of the renderer (Read Only).
enabledMakes the rendered 3D object visible if enabled.
isPartOfStaticBatchHas this renderer been statically batched with any other renderers?
isVisibleIs this renderer visible in any camera? (Read Only)
lightmapIndexThe index of the baked lightmap applied to this renderer.
lightmapScaleOffsetThe UV scale & offset used for a lightmap.
lightProbeProxyVolumeOverrideIf set, the Renderer will use the Light Probe Proxy Volume component attached to the source GameObject.
lightProbeUsageThe light probe interpolation type.
localToWorldMatrixMatrix that transforms a point from local space into world space (Read Only).
materialReturns the first instantiated Material assigned to the renderer.
materialsReturns all the instantiated materials of this object.
motionVectorGenerationModeSpecifies the mode for motion vector rendering.
probeAnchorIf set, Renderer will use this Transform's position to find the light or reflection probe.
realtimeLightmapIndexThe index of the realtime lightmap applied to this renderer.
realtimeLightmapScaleOffsetThe UV scale & offset used for a realtime lightmap.
receiveShadowsDoes this object receive shadows?
reflectionProbeUsageShould reflection probes be used for this Renderer?
renderingLayerMaskDetermines which rendering layer this renderer lives on.
shadowCastingModeDoes this object cast shadows?
sharedMaterialThe shared material of this object.
sharedMaterialsAll the shared materials of this object.
sortingLayerIDUnique ID of the Renderer's sorting layer.
sortingLayerNameName of the Renderer's sorting layer.
sortingOrderRenderer's order within a sorting layer.
worldToLocalMatrixMatrix that transforms a point from world space into local space (Read Only).

Public Methods

BroadcastMessageCalls the method named methodName on every MonoBehaviour in this game object or any of its children.
CompareTagIs this game object tagged with tag ?
GetComponentReturns the component of Type type if the game object has one attached, null if it doesn't.
GetComponentInChildrenReturns the component of Type type in the GameObject or any of its children using depth first search.
GetComponentInParentReturns the component of Type type in the GameObject or any of its parents.
GetComponentsReturns all components of Type type in the GameObject.
GetComponentsInChildrenReturns all components of Type type in the GameObject or any of its children.
GetComponentsInParentReturns all components of Type type in the GameObject or any of its parents.
SendMessageCalls the method named methodName on every MonoBehaviour in this game object.
SendMessageUpwardsCalls the method named methodName on every MonoBehaviour in this game object and on every ancestor of the behaviour.
GetInstanceIDReturns the instance id of the object.
ToStringReturns the name of the GameObject.
GetClosestReflectionProbesReturns an array of closest reflection probes with weights, weight shows how much influence the probe has on the renderer, this value is also used when blending between reflection probes occur.
GetPropertyBlockGet per-Renderer or per-Material property block.
HasPropertyBlockReturns true if the Renderer has a material property block attached via SetPropertyBlock.
SetPropertyBlockLets you set or clear per-renderer or per-material parameter overrides.

Static Methods

DestroyRemoves a gameobject, component or asset.
DestroyImmediateDestroys the object obj immediately. You are strongly recommended to use Destroy instead.
DontDestroyOnLoadMakes the object target not be destroyed automatically when loading a new scene.
FindObjectOfTypeReturns the first active loaded object of Type type.
FindObjectsOfTypeReturns a list of all active loaded objects of Type type.
InstantiateClones the object original and returns the clone.


boolDoes the object exist?
operator !=Compares if two objects refer to a different object.
operator ==Compares two object references to see if they refer to the same object.


OnBecameInvisible OnBecameInvisible is called when the object is no longer visible by any camera.
OnBecameVisible OnBecameVisible is called when the object became visible by any camera.
