Jump to: navigation, search

The LunaLua render priority (also known as z-index or z-value) is controlled by a double value.
Renderable objects with lower render priority values are render first and those with higher values are rendered last.
In LunaLua you can specifiy render values with Text.printWP, Graphics.drawImageWP, Graphics.drawImageToSceneWP, Graphics.glDraw. The current valid range of render values is between -100 and 10.
