Inherits from: Sprite


A rectangular Sprite which can be filled with solid colors, gradients or textures. Pixel aims at being a simpler and faster alternative to Shape when needing to display a coloured box or box with a gradient. It is also useful as Bitmap replacement since every texture will be fitted into Pixel dimensions automatically.


local mypixel = Pixel.new(0x0000FF, 0.75, 128, 128)
mypixel:setAnchorPoint(0.5, 0.5)
mypixel:setPosition(application:getContentWidth() / 2, 64)

local p = Pixel.new(0xffffff, 1, 32, 32)
