Brief Description

Scalable texture-based frame that tiles the texture’s centers and sides, but keeps the corners’ original size. Perfect for panels and dialog boxes.

Signals

  • texture_changed ( )

Fired when the node’s texture changes.

Member Variables

  • int axis_stretch_horizontal - Doesn’t do anything at the time of writing.
  • int axis_stretch_vertical - Doesn’t do anything at the time of writing.
  • bool draw_center - If true, draw the panel’s center. Else, only draw the 9-slice’s borders. Default value: true
  • int patch_margin_bottom - The height of the 9-slice’s bottom row. A margin of 16 means the 9-slice’s bottom corners and side will have a height of 16 pixels. You can set all 4 margin values individually to create panels with non-uniform borders.
  • int patch_margin_left - The height of the 9-slice’s left column.
  • int patch_margin_right - The height of the 9-slice’s right column.
  • int patch_margin_top - The height of the 9-slice’s top row.
  • Rect2 region_rect - Rectangular region of the texture to sample from. If you’re working with an atlas, use this property to define the area the 9-slice should use. All other properties are relative to this one.
  • Texture texture - The node’s texture resource.

Numeric Constants

  • AXIS_STRETCH_MODE_STRETCH = 0 — Doesn’t do anything at the time of writing. Default value for axis_stretch_horizontal and axis_stretch_vertical.
  • AXIS_STRETCH_MODE_TILE = 1 — Doesn’t do anything at the time of writing.
  • AXIS_STRETCH_MODE_TILE_FIT = 2 — Doesn’t do anything at the time of writing.

Description

Better known as 9-slice panels, NinePatchRect produces clean panels of any size, based on a small texture. To do so, it splits the texture in a 3 by 3 grid. When you scale the node, it tiles the texture’s sides horizontally or vertically, the center on both axes but it doesn’t scale or tile the corners.
