Description

Description:
Checks whether given position is inside given area. The area is usually a rectangle or an ellipse defined similar to triggerArea format. Hence argument for this command could be a trigger, a marker, a location or an array in format [center, a, b, angle, isRectangle, c]. This command also supports hexagon area which can be created from ellipse when both a and b are negative. Hexagon ellipses are also supported by both marker creation and drawEllipse.

Alternatively, use inAreaArray to check multiple positions/objects within area.

TriggersMarkersLocationsPositions

Syntax 1

Syntax:
position inArea trigger
Parameters:
position: Array or Object - position in format Position3D, Position2D or Object
trigger: Object - existing trigger
Return Value:
Boolean

Syntax 2

Syntax:
position inArea marker
Parameters:
position: Array or Object - position in format Position3D, Position2D or Object
marker: String - existing marker
Return Value:
Boolean

Syntax 3

Syntax:
position inArea location
Parameters:
position: Array or Object - position in format Position3D, Position2D or Object
location: Location - existing location
Return Value:
Boolean

Syntax 4

Syntax:
position inArea [center, a, b, angle, isRectangle, c]
Parameters:
position: Array or Object - position in format Position3D, Position2D or Object
center: Array or Object - center of the area in format Position3D, Position2D, Object or Group
a: Number - x axis (x / 2)
b: Number - y axis (y / 2)
angle: Number - rotation angle
isRectangle: Boolean - true if rectangle, false if ellipse
c (Optional): Number - z axis (z / 2). Default: -1 (unlimited) since Arma 3 v1.60
Return Value:
Boolean

Examples

Example 1:
_playerIsInside = player inArea _myTrigger;
Example 2:
_positionIsInside = _myPosition inArea [[100, 100, 0], 20, 30, 45, false];
