Component → Time

The Time class provides methods to control time related operations. One instance of this Component is created internnaly by the Context. It makes it possible to access and to use a global time in Components that require it (i.e Touch, Animation, etc.). In users script, this global Time can be accessed via the context.

chain(component: Component)

Adds a component to this chained component array

public

Returns the array of attached children components

public

off()

Deactivate the component

public

on()

Activate the component A call to this method calls the setup method if it has not been run yet

public

Run code after the update of all components is run This empty method is usually overriden to perform post-update actions for the component It is called periodically by an internal Mobilizing mechanism

public

preLoad the component This empty method is usually overriden to perform setup actions for the component.

public

Run code before the update of all components is run This empty method is usually overriden to perform pre-update actions for the component It is called once per component by an internal Mobilizing mechanism

public

Set's up the component This empty method is usually overriden to perform setup actions for the component This is where all the initialization (such as adding event listeners)should be done It is called automatically by an internal Mobilizing mechanism and should thus not be called directly
