Gotchas

This cannot be used on a physical body during a collision event. However, your collision handler may set a flag or include a time delay via timer.performWithDelay() so that the action can occur in the next application cycle or later. See the Collision Detection guide for a complete list of which APIs and methods are subject to this rule.

Example

local rect = display.newRect( 0, 0, 50, 50 )
rect:setFillColor( 1, 1, 1 )

rect.y = 100
