Using UghSprite in script

UghSprite is the core component of most Ugh assets and is therefore the base of most other Ugh scripting.

It is handled primarily through the Unity Inspector and the hierarchy view. A tutorial for using and implementing an UghSprite in the inspector can be found here.

UghSprites can be interacted with in script as well. a good example would be modifying the scale of the UghSprite or it’s position to facilitate interesting effects like a throbbing sprite animation of the UghSprite asset.

UghSprite Class Functions

These functions are for providing useful information for interacting with UghSprites. They return the local Center, Origin, or the UghPublisher the UghSprite belongs to.

The UpdateMesh function provides a way to update any changes made to an UghSprite in script immediately.

public Vector3 GetLocalCenter();
public Vector3 GetLocalOrigin();
public UghPublisher GetParentPublisher();
public void UpdateMesh();

UghSprite has two static class functions for updating and getting information from UghSprites

public static void ForceUpdateAllUghSpriteMeshes()

This function is provided in the Ugh menu and is used for updating all the UghSprite assets in the current scene.


public static Vector3 GetOffsetForAnchor(Anchor anchor, Vector3 customAnchorOffset)

This function provides the user with the current offset Vector of a passed in Anchor type.
