Hi guys !!

I will find it useful to have a sprite delete option in the playsprite function.
If for example, the sprite is played only once, it is deleted by itself once the animation is over !
It would be really great !

would it be possible to add that in some way ?

I do what i do !!!

DeleteSprite() <--- Delete the sprite yourself. The last thing you want is your compiler or interpreter assuming you want resources deleted.

Wow !!! We can use deletesprite ????? ^^ How does it work??? :p

I really think it could be useful!
That or an command that allows to limit the life time of the sprite !

I'm not sure I'd recommend it, but you could code that yourself with a couple of functions like this (roughly):

Thank you Hendron,
I already have little loops for that, the idea was to aim to have no more to do ...

Not exactly a built in "delete sprite when animation finished", I would prefer a GetAnimationEnd function, yes you can code this for yourself with interpreted code but a built in callback in C++ (like the ones for almost everything else in AGK) would be much faster.

Like:



Also a GetAnimationCount function.....

Just a thought

OK, thanks

I thought the agk developers will add a function that will not check each sprite!
it will save coding time and machine time too: p

if GetSpritePlaying()=0 tells you if an animation has finished playing, you can then decide to reuse the sprite (for explosions etc...) or you can delete it yourself.

It takes 1 line of code! ..just delete it yourself if you want to.
