| 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]]. <br><br>

Description

Description:
Checks whether given position or object is inside given area. Use inAreaArray to check multiple positions/objects within area.
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.
Groups:
TriggersMarkersLocationsPositions

Syntax

Syntax:
position inArea area
Parameters:
position: Object or Array in format Position2D or Position3D
area: Object, String, Location
Return Value:
Boolean

Alternative Syntax

Syntax:
position inArea [center, a, b, angle, isRectangle, c]
Parameters:
position: Object or Array in format Position2D or Position3D
center: Array or Object - center of the area in format Position2D, Position3D, 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
since 25.2px1.60
c: Number - (Optional, default -1 (unlimited)) z axis (z / 2)
Return Value:
Boolean

Examples

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