|x||The x position to check.|
|y||The y position to check.|
This function calculates the distance from the edge of the
bounding box of the calling instance to the specified x/y position
in the room, with the return value being in pixels. Note that if
the calling object have no sprite or no mask defined, the results
will be incorrect.
if distance_to_point(obj_Player.x, obj_Player.y) < range
canshoot = true;
The above code will check for the distance to the player object x/y position and if it is less than the value stored in the variable "range" the variable "canshoot" is set to true.
