Unigine::PhysicalTrigger Class

Interface for physical trigger handling. Physical triggers fire callbacks when physical or non-physical collider objects get inside or outside of them.

To use this class, include the UniginePhysicalTrigger.h file.

Unigine::PhysicalTrigger Class

Members


static int type ()

PhysicalTrigger type.

Return value

PhysicalTrigger type identifier.

static Ptr< PhysicalTrigger > create (const NodePtr & node)

PhysicalTrigger constructor.

Arguments

  • const NodePtr & node - Node smart pointer.

static Ptr< PhysicalTrigger > create (const PhysicalPtr & physical)

PhysicalTrigger constructor.

Arguments

  • const PhysicalPtr & physical - Physical smart pointer.

static Ptr< PhysicalTrigger > create (int type, const vec3 & size)

PhysicalTrigger constructor.

Arguments

  • int type - The shape of the physical trigger:
    • 0 - Sphere
    • 1 - Capsule
    • 2 - Cylinder
    • 3 - Box
  • const vec3 & size - The size of the physical trigger:
    • The radius, in case of a sphere (pass the radius in the first element of the vector).
    • The radius and the height, in case of a capsule or a cylinder (pass the radius as the first vector element and the height as the second element).
    • The dimensions along the X, Y and Z axes, in case of the box.

virtual void setShapeType (int type) const =0

Sets a shape of the physical trigger.

Arguments

  • int type - A shape of the physical trigger:
    • 0 - Sphere
    • 1 - Capsule
    • 2 - Cylinder
    • 3 - Box

virtual int getShapeType () const =0

Returns the shape of the physical trigger:
  • 0, in case of the sphere shape.
  • 1, in case of the capsule shape.
  • 2, in case of the cylinder shape.
  • 3, in case of the box shape.

Return value

The shape of the physical trigger.

virtual void setSize (const vec3 & size) const =0

Sets a size of the physical trigger.

Arguments

  • const vec3 & size - A new size of the physical trigger:
    • The radius, in case of a sphere (pass the radius in the first element of the vector).
    • The radius and the height, in case of a capsule or a cylinder (pass the radius as the first vector element and the height as the second element).
    • The dimensions along the X, Y and Z axes, in case of the box.

virtual vec3 getSize () const =0

Returns the current size of the physical trigger:
  • The radius, in case of a sphere (pass the radius in the first element of the vector).
  • The radius and the height, in case of a capsule or a cylinder (pass the radius as the first vector element and the height as the second element).
  • The dimensions along the X, Y and Z axes, in case of the box.

Return value

The size of the physical trigger.

virtual void setCollisionMask (int mask) const =0

Sets the collision bit mask for the trigger:
  • In case of physical objects, the trigger will be activated if the entered body will have a matching physical mask and at the same time its shape will have a matching collision mask.
  • In case of non-physical objects, the trigger will be activated if the surface has a matching collision mask. See also details on additional collision exclusion mask (setExclusionMask()).

Arguments

  • int mask - An integer value, each bit of which is used to set a mask.

virtual int getCollisionMask () const =0

Sets the collision bit mask for the trigger:
  • In case of physical objects, the trigger will be activated if the entered body will have a matching physical mask and at the same time its shape will have a matching collision mask.
  • In case of non-physical objects, the trigger will be activated if the surface has a matching collision mask. See also details on additional collision exclusion mask (setExclusionMask()).

Return value

The integer value, each bit of which is used to set a mask.

virtual void setExclusionMask (int mask) const =0

Sets an bit mask to prevent detecting collisions with shapes and bodies. This mask is independent of the collision mask. To avoid detecting collisions by a physical trigger for bodies and shapes with matching collision masks, at least one bit in exclusion masks should match. 0 is to collide with all bodies and shapes with a matching collision mask.

Arguments

  • int mask - An integer value, each bit of which is used to set a mask.

virtual int getExclusionMask () const =0

Returns the bit mask that prevent detecting collisions with shapes and bodies. This mask is independent of the collision mask. To avoid detecting collisions by a physical trigger for bodies and shapes with matching collision masks, at least one bit in exclusion masks should match.

Return value

The integer value, each bit of which is used to set a mask.

virtual void setEnterCallbackName (const char * name) const =0

Sets a callback function to be fired on entering the physical trigger.
  • Unlike setEnterCallback(), this callback function accepts a body that entered the physical trigger and the physical trigger itself as arguments.
  • If collision with non-physical collider surface happens, the returned body is NULL.

Arguments

  • const char * name - A name of the callback function.

virtual const char * getEnterCallbackName () const =0

Returns the callback function name to be fired on entering the physical trigger. This callback function is set via setEnterCallbackName().

Return value

The name of the callback function.

virtual void setLeaveCallbackName (const char * name) const =0

Sets a callback function to be fired on leaving the physical trigger.
  • Unlike setLeaveCallback(), this callback function accepts a body that left the physical trigger and physical trigger itself as arguments.
  • If collision with non-physical collider surface happens, the returned body is NULL.

Arguments

  • const char * name - A name of the callback function.

virtual const char * getLeaveCallbackName () const =0

Returns the callback function name to be fired on leaving the physical trigger. This callback function is set via setLeaveCallbackName().

Return value

The name of the callback function.

virtual void setEnterCallback (CallbackBase * func) const =0

Sets a pointer to a callback function to be fired on entering the physical trigger.

Arguments

  • CallbackBase * func - A pointer to a callback function.

virtual void setLeaveCallback (CallbackBase * func) const =0

Sets a pointer to a callback function to be fired on leaving the physical trigger.

Arguments

  • CallbackBase * func - A pointer to a callback function.

virtual void updateContacts () const =0

Forces a physical trigger to be updated, i.e. to recalculate its intersections with physical objects and colliders. After that, you can access all updated data; however, callback functions themselves will be executed only when physics flush is over.
