Overview

Retrieve or change the width of a display object. For text objects, this property can be used to get (but not set) the width.

For images, the returned value is the original bitmap width, including any transparent area.

Gotchas

This value is unaffected by object:scale() or object.xScale. Likewise, the value is not affected by object rotation.

Example

local rect1 = display.newRect( 100, 100, 50, 50 )
rect1:setFillColor( 0.5, 0, 1 )
 
local rect2 = display.newRect( 100, 100, 50, 50 )
rect2:setFillColor( 1, 0, 0 )
rect2.x = rect1.x + rect1.width+10

local rect3 = display.newRect( 75, 150, 50, 50 )
rect3:setFillColor( 0, 0.5, 1 )
rect3.anchorX = 0

transition.to( rect3, { time=2000, width=110 } )
