Description

A Viewport creates a different view into the screen, or a sub-view inside another viewport. Children 2D Nodes will display on it, and children Camera 3D nodes will render on it too.

Optionally, a viewport can have its own 2D or 3D world, so they don’t share what they draw with other viewports.

If a viewport is a child of a ViewportContainer, it will automatically take up its size, otherwise it must be set manually.

Viewports can also choose to be audio listeners, so they generate positional audio depending on a 2D or 3D camera child of it.

Also, viewports can be assigned to different screens in case the devices have multiple screens.

Finally, viewports can also behave as render targets, in which case they will not be visible unless the associated texture is used to draw.

Property Descriptions

Setter set_use_arvr(value)
Getter use_arvr()

If true the viewport will be used in AR/VR process. Default value: false.

  • bool audio_listener_enable_2d
Setter set_as_audio_listener_2d(value)
Getter is_audio_listener_2d()

If true the viewport will process 2D audio streams. Default value: false.

  • bool audio_listener_enable_3d
Setter set_as_audio_listener(value)
Getter is_audio_listener()

If true the viewport will process 3D audio streams. Default value: false.

Setter set_canvas_transform(value)
Getter get_canvas_transform()

The canvas transform of the viewport, useful for changing the on-screen positions of all child CanvasItems. This is relative to the global canvas transform of the viewport.

Setter set_debug_draw(value)
Getter get_debug_draw()

The overlay mode for test rendered geometry in debug purposes. Default value: DEBUG_DRAW_DISABLED.

Setter set_disable_3d(value)
Getter is_3d_disabled()

If true the viewport will disable 3D rendering. For actual disabling use usage. Default value: false.

Setter set_global_canvas_transform(value)
Getter get_global_canvas_transform()

The global canvas transform of the viewport. The canvas transform is relative to this.

  • bool gui_disable_input
Setter set_disable_input(value)
Getter is_input_disabled()

If true the viewport will not receive input event. Default value: false.

  • bool gui_snap_controls_to_pixels
Setter set_snap_controls_to_pixels(value)
Getter is_snap_controls_to_pixels_enabled()

If true the GUI controls on the viewport will lay pixel perfectly. Default value: true.

Setter set_hdr(value)
Getter get_hdr()

If true the viewport rendering will receive benefits from High Dynamic Range algorithm. Default value: true.

  • bool keep_3d_linear
Setter set_keep_3d_linear(value)
Getter get_keep_3d_linear()

If true the result after 3D rendering will not have a linear to sRGB color conversion applied. This is important when the viewport is used as a render target where the result is used as a texture on a 3D object rendered in another viewport. It is also important if the viewport is used to create data that is not color based (noise, heightmaps, pickmaps, etc.). Do not enable this when the viewport is used as a texture on a 2D object or if the viewport is your final output.

Setter set_msaa(value)
Getter get_msaa()

Getter get_physics_object_picking()

If true the objects rendered by viewport become subjects of mouse picking process. Default value: false.

Setter set_clear_mode(value)
Getter get_clear_mode()

The clear mode when viewport used as a render target. Default value: CLEAR_MODE_ALWAYS.

Setter set_update_mode(value)
Getter get_update_mode()

The update mode when viewport used as a render target. Default value: UPDATE_WHEN_VISIBLE.

Returns the total transform of the viewport.

  • Control get_modal_stack_top ( ) const

Returns the topmost modal in the stack.

Returns the mouse position relative to the viewport.

Returns information about the viewport from the rendering pipeline.

Returns the size override set with set_size_override.

Returns the viewport’s texture.

  • RID get_viewport_rid ( ) const

Returns the viewport’s RID from the VisualServer.

  • Rect2 get_visible_rect ( ) const

Returns the visible rectangle in global screen coordinates.

  • Variant gui_get_drag_data ( ) const

Returns the drag data from the GUI, that was previously returned by Control.get_drag_data.
