Declaration

public static float Angle(Vector2 from, Vector2 to);

Parameters

from The vector from which the angular difference is measured.
to The vector to which the angular difference is measured.

Returns

float The unsigned angle in degrees between the two vectors.

Description

Gets the unsigned angle in degrees between from and to.

The angle returned is the unsigned angle between the two vectors.
Note: The angle returned will always be between 0 and 180 degrees, because the method returns the smallest angle between the vectors. That is, it will never return a reflex angle. Angles are calculated from world origin point (0,0,0) as the vertex.
