Drawing Basic Forms

This section shows the functions available for drawing basic shapes and forms.

GameMaker: Studio has a whole collection of functions available for drawing different forms and shapes. These functions should only ever be used in the draw event of an instance (you can use them elsewhere but you won't see anything!) and create purely graphic effects, which means that they do not generate collision events as those can only be done through the sprite or collision mask that has been assigned to an instance. All these functions are affected by the current draw colour, alpha and blend mode (see colour And Blending).

Further Drawing Functions
