origin | The point in 2D space where the circle originates. |

radius | The radius of the circle. |

direction | Vector representing the direction of the circle. |

distance | Maximum distance over which to cast the circle. |

layerMask | Filter to detect Colliders only on certain layers. |

minDepth | Only include objects with a Z coordinate (depth) greater than or equal to this value. |

maxDepth | Only include objects with a Z coordinate (depth) less than or equal to this value. |

**RaycastHit2D**
The cast results returned.

Casts a circle against colliders in the scene, returning the first collider to contact with it.

A *CircleCast* is conceptually like dragging a circle through the Scene in a particular direction. Any object making contact with the circle can be detected and reported.

This function returns a RaycastHit2D object with a reference to the collider that is hit by the box (the collider property of the result will be NULL if nothing was hit). The *layerMask* can be used to detect objects selectively only on certain layers (this allows you to apply the detection only to enemy characters, for example).

The returned RaycastHit2D returns both the point and normal of the contact where the circle would touch the collider. It also returns the centroid where the circle would be positioned for it to contact at that point.

origin | The point in 2D space where the circle originates. |

radius | The radius of the circle. |

direction | Vector representing the direction of the circle. |

contactFilter | The contact filter used to filter the results differently, such as by layer mask, Z depth, or normal angle. |

results | The array to receive results. The size of the array determines the maximum number of results that can be returned. |

distance | Maximum distance over which to cast the circle. |

**int**
Returns the number of results placed in the `results`

array.

Casts a circle against colliders in the Scene, returning all colliders that contact with it.

A *CircleCast* is conceptually like dragging a circle through the Scene in a particular direction. Any collider making contact with the circle can be detected and reported.

This function returns the number of contacts found and places those contacts in the `results`

array. The results can also be filtered by the `contactFilter`

.
