EditorInterface

Inherits: Node < Object

Godot editor's interface.

Description

EditorInterface gives you control over Godot editor's window. It allows customizing the window, saving and (re-)loading scenes, rendering mesh previews, inspecting and editing resources and objects, and provides access to EditorSettings, EditorFileSystem, EditorResourcePreview, ScriptEditor, the editor viewport, and information about scenes.

Note: This class shouldn't be instantiated directly. Instead, access the singleton using EditorPlugin.get_editor_interface.

Property Descriptions

bool distraction_free_mode

  • void set_distraction_free_mode ( bool value )

  • bool is_distraction_free_mode_enabled ( )

If true, enables distraction-free mode which hides side docks to increase the space available for the main view.


Method Descriptions

void edit_node ( Node node )

Edits the given Node. The node will be also selected if it's inside the scene tree.


void edit_resource ( Resource resource )

Edits the given Resource. If the resource is a Script you can also edit it with edit_script to specify the line and column position.


void edit_script ( Script script, int line=-1, int column=0, bool grab_focus=true )

Edits the given Script. The line and column on which to open the script can also be specified. The script will be open with the user-configured editor for the script's language which may be an external editor.


Control get_base_control ( )

Returns the main container of Godot editor's window. For example, you can use it to retrieve the size of the container and place your controls accordingly.

Warning: Removing and freeing this node will render the editor useless and may cause a crash.


EditorCommandPalette get_command_palette ( ) const

Returns the editor's EditorCommandPalette instance.

Warning: Removing and freeing this node will render a part of the editor useless and may cause a crash.


String get_current_directory ( ) const

Returns the current directory being viewed in the FileSystemDock. If a file is selected, its base directory will be returned using String.get_base_dir instead.


String get_current_path ( ) const

Returns the current path being viewed in the FileSystemDock.


Node get_edited_scene_root ( )

Returns the edited (current) scene's root Node.


VBoxContainer get_editor_main_screen ( )

Returns the editor control responsible for main screen plugins and tools. Use it with plugins that implement EditorPlugin._has_main_screen.

Warning: Removing and freeing this node will render a part of the editor useless and may cause a crash.


EditorPaths get_editor_paths ( )

Returns the EditorPaths singleton.


float get_editor_scale ( ) const

Returns the actual scale of the editor UI (1.0 being 100% scale). This can be used to adjust position and dimensions of the UI added by plugins.

Note: This value is set via the interface/editor/display_scale and interface/editor/custom_display_scale editor settings. Editor must be restarted for changes to be properly applied.


EditorSettings get_editor_settings ( )

Returns the editor's EditorSettings instance.


FileSystemDock get_file_system_dock ( )

Returns the editor's FileSystemDock instance.

Warning: Removing and freeing this node will render a part of the editor useless and may cause a crash.


EditorInspector get_inspector ( ) const

Returns the editor's EditorInspector instance.

Warning: Removing and freeing this node will render a part of the editor useless and may cause a crash.


PackedStringArray get_open_scenes ( ) const

Returns an Array with the file paths of the currently opened scenes.


String get_playing_scene ( ) const

Returns the name of the scene that is being played. If no scene is currently being played, returns an empty string.


EditorFileSystem get_resource_filesystem ( )

Returns the editor's EditorFileSystem instance.


EditorResourcePreview get_resource_previewer ( )

Returns the editor's EditorResourcePreview instance.


ScriptEditor get_script_editor ( )

Returns the editor's ScriptEditor instance.

Warning: Removing and freeing this node will render a part of the editor useless and may cause a crash.


PackedStringArray get_selected_paths ( ) const

Returns an array containing the paths of the currently selected files (and directories) in the FileSystemDock.


EditorSelection get_selection ( )

Returns the editor's EditorSelection instance.


void inspect_object ( Object object, String for_property="", bool inspector_only=false )

Shows the given property on the given object in the editor's Inspector dock. If inspector_only is true, plugins will not attempt to edit object.


bool is_movie_maker_enabled ( ) const

Returns true if Movie Maker mode is enabled in the editor. See also set_movie_maker_enabled. See MovieWriter for more information.


bool is_playing_scene ( ) const

Returns true if a scene is currently being played, false otherwise. Paused scenes are considered as being played.


bool is_plugin_enabled ( String plugin ) const

Returns true if the specified plugin is enabled. The plugin name is the same as its directory name.


Texture2D[] make_mesh_previews ( Mesh[] meshes, int preview_size )

Returns mesh previews rendered at the given size as an Array of Texture2Ds.


void open_scene_from_path ( String scene_filepath )

Opens the scene at the given path.


void play_current_scene ( )

Plays the currently active scene.


void play_custom_scene ( String scene_filepath )

Plays the scene specified by its filepath.


void play_main_scene ( )

Plays the main scene.


void reload_scene_from_path ( String scene_filepath )

Reloads the scene at the given path.


void restart_editor ( bool save=true )

Restarts the editor. This closes the editor and then opens the same project. If save is true, the project will be saved before restarting.


Error save_scene ( )

Saves the scene. Returns either @GlobalScope.OK or @GlobalScope.ERR_CANT_CREATE.


void save_scene_as ( String path, bool with_preview=true )
