public method GetWorldCorners(fourCornersArray: Vector3[]): void;
public void GetWorldCorners(Vector3[] fourCornersArray);

Parameters

fourCornersArray The ray that corners are filled into.

Description

Get the corners of the calculated rectangle in world space.

Each corner provides it's world space value. The returned array of 4 vertices is clockwise. It starts bottom left and rotates to top left, then top right, and finally bottom right. Note that bottom left, for example, is an (x, y, z) vector with x being left and y being bottom.

Note: If the RectTransform is rotated in Z then the dimensions of the GetWorldCorners will be changed.
