Description

Applies both force and torque to reduce both the linear and angular velocities to zero.

The joint constantly tries to reduce both the ::Rigidbody2D::velocity and ::Rigidbody2D::angularVelocity to zero. Unlike contact friction which requires two colliders to be in contact, force and torque here are applied continuously.

You can control both the maximum force using maxForce and maximum torque using maxTorque. Because you can use very high force or torque limits, you can essentially reduce an objects movement to almost zero.

A typical usage for this joint might be to simulate top-down surface friction or to simulate stiff rotation of an object.

Properties

maxForceThe maximum force that can be generated when trying to maintain the friction joint constraint.
maxTorqueThe maximum torque that can be generated when trying to maintain the friction joint constraint.

Properties

anchorThe joint's anchor point on the object that has the joint component.
autoConfigureConnectedAnchorShould the connectedAnchor be calculated automatically?
connectedAnchorThe joint's anchor point on the second object (ie, the one which doesn't have the joint component).
enabledEnabled Behaviours are Updated, disabled Behaviours are not.
isActiveAndEnabledHas the Behaviour had active and enabled called?
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.
attachedRigidbodyThe Rigidbody2D attached to the Joint2D.
breakForceThe force that needs to be applied for this joint to break.
breakTorqueThe torque that needs to be applied for this joint to break.
connectedBodyThe Rigidbody2D object to which the other end of the joint is attached (ie, the object without the joint component).
enableCollisionShould the two rigid bodies connected with this joint collide with each other?
reactionForceGets the reaction force of the joint.
reactionTorqueGets the reaction torque of the joint.
hideFlagsShould the object be hidden, saved with the Scene or modifiable by the user?
nameThe name of the object.

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.
TryGetComponentGets the component of the specified type, if it exists.
GetReactionForceGets the reaction force of the joint given the specified timeStep.
GetReactionTorqueGets the reaction torque of the joint given the specified timeStep.
GetInstanceIDReturns the instance id of the object.
ToStringReturns the name of the GameObject.

Static Methods

DestroyRemoves a gameobject, component or asset.
DestroyImmediateDestroys the object obj immediately. You are strongly recommended to use Destroy instead.
DontDestroyOnLoadDo not destroy the target Object 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.

Operators

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.

Messages

OnJointBreak2DCalled when a Joint2D attached to the same game object breaks.
