This function returns the distance between two 2 dimensional points using the pythagorean theorem.


float getDistanceBetweenPoints2D ( float x1, float y1, float x2, float y2 )

Required Arguments

  • x1: The X position of the first point
  • y1: The Y position of the first point
  • x2: The X position of the second point
  • y2: The Y position of the second point


Returns a float containing the 2D distance between the two points. Returns false if invalid parameters are passed.
