A boolean for whether the rotation of the body should be locked, even if the body is under load or subjected to
It's critical that you set this body property after the object is already made into a physical object via physics.addBody(). If you apply this property before the physics.addBody() command for the object, it will merely be treated as a property of the object like any other custom property and, in that case, it will not cause any physical change in terms of locking rotation.
-- Create a rectangle local myRect = display.newRect( 0, 0, 20, 100 ) -- Add a body to the rectangle physics.addBody( myRect, "dynamic" ) myRect.isFixedRotation = true
