UIProgress bar position at x value
« on: April 27, 2017, 12:50:07 PM »
Greetings.

I was wondering if is there any convenience method to get either the local position or the world position of where a UIFillbar would be at t value.

This is because in my game I set a minimum percentage to win, and I want to get it on start, move the sprite that marks that percent, to whatever value it would be on my fillbar.

Because, I could hack it by having the sprite childed to the thumb, setting the value to t, unchilding the line at that position, then moving the value back to 0, but I think that is not the right way to do it.

To get the position... assuming by "position" you mean the right side of the scroll bar set to go from left to right is progress bar's width * value, isn't it? I'm not entirely sure what you mean here. More advanced approach would be to consider progress bar's foreground widget's drawingDimensions.

This is what I mean.

I have a fillbar.
The thumb represents how many entities you have killed. Every level has a "marker" that indicates how many entities you must kill before you can pass the level.

The amount is usually 75%, but I wanted to know how to set my marker at whatever percentage of the fillbar.

Yup, so my previous answer stands. I'd recommend using the drawingDimensions.
