public static int OverlapBoxNonAlloc(Vector2 point, Vector2 size, float angle, Collider2D[] results, int layerMask = DefaultRaycastLayers, float minDepth = -Mathf.Infinity, float maxDepth = Mathf.Infinity);


pointThe center of the box.
sizeThe size of the box.
angleThe angle of the box.
resultsArray to receive results.
layerMaskFilter to check objects only on specific layers.
minDepthOnly include objects with a Z coordinate (depth) greater than this value.
maxDepthOnly include objects with a Z coordinate (depth) less than this value.


int Returns the number of results placed in the results array.


Get a list of all colliders that fall within a box area.

This function is similar to OverlapBoxAll except that the results are returned in the supplied array. The integer return value is the number of objects that fall within the box (possibly zero) but the results array will not be resized if it doesn't contain enough elements to report all the results. The significance of this is that no memory is allocated for the results and so garbage collection performance is improved when the check is performed frequently.
