Type Function Library display.* Return value DisplayObject Revision Current Public Release (2017.3135) Keywords group, stage, screen See also display.currentStage Group Programming (guide)
Returns a reference to the current stage object, which is the parent group for all display objects and groups. Currently, Corona has a single stage instance, so this function always returns a reference to the same object.
-- Used in conjunction with a touch event listener and the ":setFocus()" method function object:touch( event ) if event.phase == "began" then -- Get stage and call ":setFocus()" method local stage = display.getCurrentStage() stage:setFocus( self ) self.isFocus = true elseif self.isFocus then if event.phase == "ended" or event.phase == "cancelled" then local stage = display.getCurrentStage() stage:setFocus( nil ) end end return true end
-- Ungroup an object from its current parent group by inserting it into the top-level "stage" group local g = display.newGroup() local obj = display.newImage( "image.png" ) g:insert( obj ) local stage = display.getCurrentStage() -- Ungroup object by inserting into top-level stage group stage:insert( obj ) -- Object no longer belongs to the "g" group
