destroy group


Recommended Posts


Having problems using .destroy() to remove a group. Am i using it wrong? Is there an alternative I should use?

I've tried .kill() and .remove() and they don't work either, my code is below. Destroy is at the very bottom in the hideCommentaryBox() function.

preload() {
create() {
this.timedEvent = this.time.addEvent({ delay: 1500, callback: this.singleLineCommentary, callbackScope: this});
update() {
singleLineCommentary() {
this.showCommentaryBox("HELLO THERE! Put Some Text Here!");
this.timedEvent = this.time.addEvent({ delay: 4500, callback: this.hideCommentaryBox, callbackScope: this});
showCommentaryBox(text) {
if (this.commBox) {
var commBox = this.add.group();
var rect = new Phaser.Geom.Rectangle(0, (960*scaleFactor), windowWidth, 70);
var commBack = this.add.graphics({ fillStyle: { color: 0x0000ff } });
rect.depth += windowHeight;
var style = {
fontSize: 24,
fontFamily: 'Arial',
align: "center"
var commText = this.add.text(windowWidth / 2, (1020*scaleFactor), text, style).setOrigin(0.5, 0.5);
this.commBox = commBox;
hideCommentaryBox() {
