Overview

Displays a Steam image by its unique imageHandle property that was retrieved by the steamworks.getAchievementImageInfo() or steamworks.getUserImageInfo() functions.

This function works like the Corona display.newImageRect() function where you can specify the width and height at which the Steam image will be scaled relative to the content width and height defined in config.lua.

local imageInfo = steamworks.getUserImageInfo( "mediumAvatar" )
if ( imageInfo == nil ) then
    return
end

-- Display the user's avatar scaled to 64x64 content coordinates on the left
local avatarImage = steamworks.newImageRect( imageInfo.imageHandle, 64, 64 )
if ( avatarImage ) then
    avatarImage.x = display.contentWidth * 0.25
    avatarImage.y = display.contentCenterY
end

-- Display the user's avatar unscaled and "pixel perfect" on the right
local avatarImage = steamworks.newImageRect(
    imageInfo.imageHandle,
    imageInfo.pixelWidth * display.contentScaleX,
    imageInfo.pixelHeight * display.contentScaleY )
if ( avatarImage ) then
    avatarImage.x = display.contentWidth * 0.75
    avatarImage.y = display.contentCenterY
end
