Py5Vector.set_limit()#

Constrain the vector’s magnitude to a specified value.

Examples#

def draw():
    py5.background(128)
    py5.translate(py5.width / 2, py5.height / 2)
    v1 = py5.Py5Vector(py5.mouse_x - py5.width / 2, py5.mouse_y - py5.height / 2)

    py5.stroke(0)
    py5.stroke_weight(5)
    py5.line(0, 0, v1.x, v1.y)

    v1.set_limit(25)

    py5.stroke(255, 0, 0)
    py5.stroke_weight(2)
    py5.line(0, 0, v1.x, v1.y)

Description#

Constrain the vector’s magnitude to a specified value. If the vector’s magnitude is already less than or equal to max_mag, this method will have no effect. If the vector’s magnitude is larger, it will be set to max_mag. The max_mag parameter cannot be a negative number.

Signatures#

set_limit(
    max_mag: float,  # maximum vector magnitude
) -> Py5Vector
