Join Jesse Freeman for an in-depth discussion in this video Add buttons to the game over screen, part of Unity 5: 2D Advanced UI.
- [Voiceover] Let's go ahead and create a button…that'll let us leave this window.…We can close out the StatsGroup…now that we're done with it, right click…on the vertical group, and create an empty game object.…Let's call this game object Buttons.…Next, we'll want to add a horizontal layout group…so that we can properly lay out…each of the buttons we add to it.…Next, let's add five to the spacing…so that each of the buttons have…a little bit of breathing room between them.…Now, let's drag in a button and see how it looks.…
Since the vertical layout is stretching…all the children inside of it, you'll notice…that the button will expand to completely…take up the full size of its parent window,…and this is exactly what we want.…Let's go ahead and rename this button to Next,…and look inside and change the text to say Next as well.…Now, this is the only button that…we really want on the screen, but let's say…you wanted to add additional buttons…to your game over screen.…
You could simply copy the Next button,…and paste them into the area.…
