Bevy Version:0.9(outdated!)

As this page is outdated, please refer to Bevy's official migration guides while reading, to cover the differences: 0.9 to 0.10, 0.10 to 0.11, 0.11 to 0.12, 0.12 to 0.13.

I apologize for the inconvenience. I will update the page as soon as I find the time.

React to Changes with Asset Events

If you need to perform specific actions when an asset is created, modified, or removed, you can make a system that reacts to AssetEvent events.

struct MyMapImage {
    handle: Handle<Image>,

fn fixup_images(
    mut ev_asset: EventReader<AssetEvent<Image>>,
    mut assets: ResMut<Assets<Image>>,
    map_img: Res<MyMapImage>,
) {
    for ev in ev_asset.iter() {
        match ev {
            AssetEvent::Created { handle } => {
                // a texture was just loaded or changed!

                // WARNING: this mutable access will cause another
                // AssetEvent (Modified) to be emitted!
                let texture = assets.get_mut(handle).unwrap();
                // ^ unwrap is OK, because we know it is loaded now

                if *handle == map_img.handle {
                    // it is our special map image!
                } else {
                    // it is some other image
            AssetEvent::Modified { handle } => {
                // an image was modified
            AssetEvent::Removed { handle } => {
                // an image was unloaded

Note: If you are handling Modified events and doing a mutable access to the data, the .get_mut will trigger another Modified event for the same asset. If you are not careful, this could result in an infinite loop! (from events caused by your own system)
