Filter Class

Defined in: Filter:41
Module: EaselJS

Base class that all filters should inherit from. Filters need to be applied to objects that have been cached using the cache method. If an object changes, please cache it again, or use updateCache. Note that the filters must be applied before caching.

Example

 myInstance.filters = [
     new createjs.ColorFilter(0, 0, 0, 1, 255, 0, 0),
     new createjs.BlurFilter(5, 5, 10)
 ];
 myInstance.cache(0,0, 100, 100);

Note that each filter can implement a getBounds method, which returns the margins that need to be applied in order to fully display the filter. For example, the BlurFilter will cause an object to feather outwards, resulting in a margin around the shape.

EaselJS Filters

EaselJS comes with a number of pre-built filters:

Constructor

Filter

()

Defined in Filter:41

Item Index

Methods

_applyFilter

(
  • imageData
)
Boolean

Defined in _applyFilter:147

Parameters:

  • imageData ImageData

    Target ImageData instance.

Returns:

applyFilter

(
  • ctx
  • x
  • y
  • width
  • height
  • [targetCtx]
  • [targetX]
  • [targetY]
)
Boolean

Defined in applyFilter:98

Applies the filter to the specified context.

Parameters:

  • ctx CanvasRenderingContext2D

    The 2D context to use as the source.

  • x Number

    The x position to use for the source rect.

  • y Number

    The y position to use for the source rect.

  • width Number

    The width to use for the source rect.

  • height Number

    The height to use for the source rect.

  • [targetCtx] CanvasRenderingContext2D optional

    The 2D context to draw the result to. Defaults to the context passed to ctx.

  • [targetX] Number optional

    The x position to draw the result to. Defaults to the value passed to x.

  • [targetY] Number optional

    The y position to draw the result to. Defaults to the value passed to y.

Returns:

Boolean:

If the filter was applied successfully.

clone

() Filter

Defined in clone:137

Returns a clone of this Filter instance.

Returns:

Filter:

A clone of the current Filter instance.

getBounds

(
  • [rect]
)
Rectangle

Defined in getBounds:88

Provides padding values for this filter. That is, how much the filter will extend the visual bounds of an object it is applied to.

Parameters:

  • [rect] Rectangle optional

    If specified, the provided Rectangle instance will be expanded by the padding amounts and returned.

Returns:

Rectangle:

If a rect param was provided, it is returned. If not, either a new rectangle with the padding values, or null if no padding is required for this filter.

initialize

() deprecated protected

Defined in initialize:73

REMOVED. Removed in favor of using MySuperClass_constructor. See extend and promote for details.

There is an inheritance tutorial distributed with EaselJS in /tutorials/Inheritance.

toString

() String

Defined in toString:128

Returns a string representation of this object.
