Description

A set of parameters for filtering contact results.

Use a contact filter to precisely control which contact results get returned. This removes the need to filter the results later, is faster, and more convenient.

Variables

isFilteringGiven the current state of the contact filter, determine whether it would filter anything.
layerMaskSets the contact filter to filter the results that only include Collider2D on the layers defined by the layer mask.
maxDepthSets the contact filter to filter the results to only include Collider2D with a Z coordinate (depth) less than this value.
maxNormalAngleSets the contact filter to filter the results to only include contacts with collision normal angles that are less than this angle.
minDepthSets the contact filter to filter the results to only include Collider2D with a Z coordinate (depth) greater than this value.
minNormalAngleSets the contact filter to filter the results to only include contacts with collision normal angles that are greater than this angle.
useDepthSets the contact filter to filter the results by depth using minDepth and maxDepth.
useLayerMaskSets the contact filter to filter results by layer mask.
useNormalAngleSets the contact filter to filter the results by the collision's normal angle using minNormalAngle and maxNormalAngle.
useOutsideDepthSets the contact filter to filter within the minDepth and maxDepth range, or outside that range.
useOutsideNormalAngleSets the contact filter to filter within the minNormalAngle and maxNormalAngle range, or outside that range.
useTriggersSets to filter contact results based on trigger collider involvement.

Public Functions

ClearDepthTurns off depth filtering by setting useDepth to false. The associated values of minDepth and maxDepth are not changed.
ClearLayerMaskTurns off layer mask filtering by setting useLayerMask to false. The associated value of layerMask is not changed.
ClearNormalAngleTurns off normal angle filtering by setting useNormalAngle to false. The associated values of minNormalAngle and maxNormalAngle are not changed.
IsFilteringDepthChecks if the Transform for obj is within the depth range to be filtered.
IsFilteringLayerMaskChecks if the GameObject.layer for obj is included in the layerMask to be filtered.
IsFilteringNormalAngleChecks if the angle of normal is within the normal angle range to be filtered.
IsFilteringTriggerChecks if the collider is a trigger and should be filtered by the useTriggers to be filtered.
NoFilterSets the contact filter to not filter any ContactPoint2D.
SetDepthSets the minDepth and maxDepth filter properties and turns on depth filtering by setting useDepth to true.
SetLayerMaskSets the layerMask filter property using the layerMask parameter provided and also enables layer mask filtering by setting useLayerMask to true.
SetNormalAngleSets the minNormalAngle and maxNormalAngle filter properties and turns on normal angle filtering by setting useNormalAngle to true.
