- [Voiceover] Now we're ready to add buttons…to our start window.…Let's create a new empty game object…in our start window.…Here we're going to call this buttons.…Next, let's add a vertical layout group to it.…Simply click on the Add Component…and start typing in the word vertical…and select it from the drop-down list.…Now that we have our vertical layout,…let's uncheck the child's force expand…width and height toggle buttons.…
From here, we can drag a button…in to the buttons game object.…Now if we reposition our scene…you'll see that our buttons game object…actually expands out past the width of our button…and goes all the way down,…almost to where the credits are.…That's because our button game object by default…has a width and a height set to 100.…We're going to fix that in a minute.…Next. let's select the button,…copy and paste two more of them…in to our vertical layout…and we'll go ahead…and rename each of the buttons.…
We'll call the first continue…and toggle the button.…Go to the text component inside…and change the text there as well.…
