Script

Inherits: Resource < RefCounted < Object

Inherited By: CSharpScript, GDScript, ScriptExtension

A class stored as a resource.

Description

A class stored as a resource. A script extends the functionality of all objects that instantiate it.

This is the base class for all scripts and should not be used directly. Trying to create a new script with this class will result in an error.

The new method of a script subclass creates a new instance. Object.set_script extends an existing object, if that object's class matches one of the script's base classes.
