  table util.QuickTrace( Vector origin, Vector dir, Entity filter = nil )


Performs a trace with the given origin, direction, and filter.

This function will throw an error in the menu realm because it internally uses util.TraceLine which doesn't exist in the menu realm and thus error.


1 Vector origin
The origin of the trace.
2 Vector dir
The direction of the trace times the distance of the trace. This is added to the origin to determine the endpos.
3 Entity filter = nil
Entity which should be ignored by the trace. Can also be a table of entities or a function - see Trace structure.


1 table
Trace result. See TraceResult structure.
