TypeError: BABYLON.GUI.GUIImage is not a constructor


Recommended Posts


I wanted to try the latest preview release, but my IDE says that "Image" does not exist on type "typeof GUI". By looking at the available types from the GUI, the IDE suggests GUIImage, so I replaced everything with GUIImage.

Now I get a console error in my browser, saying "TypeError: BABYLON.GUI.GUIImage is not a constructor".

I get the same error on the playground, which btw also suggests GUIImage.

By looking at the source code, I think this was intentional, but it isn't mentioned in the what's new file for the preview release.

You can see the error on the playground https://www.babylonjs-playground.com/#K60448#22

Is this a bug, or do I need to change something else to get it working?

I just upgraded to the latest version and encountered this issue as well.


The problem is that the class is defined as GUIImage in the .d.ts now for some reason, while the actual js still defines the class as Image.

I simply changed it manually in the .d.ts for now, but I suppose it should be fixed.
