I'm trying to get the position of a static body in JBox2D, how do I do that?


1 Answer 1


I haven't used JBox2D, but I think this is accurate. I looked at the source for the project and learned a lot (and you can too). Primarily that body contains a Transform, and that the Transform contains the position.

Since all those variables are public, it's likely you'll be able to access the position from:

  • \$\begingroup\$ You're going to need to add more details to your question. What have you tried already, what about it isn't working? Are you getting a position, but it's not the correct one? Details needed. \$\endgroup\$
