Join Jesse Freeman for an in-depth discussion in this video Build a custom editor, part of Unity 5: 2D Advanced UI.
- [Voiceover] So, now that we have…our three main windows and we have…our window manager connecting them all together,…it's time to take a look at how we build a better tool…to let us organize each of the windows.…Since each window is stored in an array,…it works okay for now as we have just a small number…of windows but as your game grows…you're gonna want a better way of organizing…and especially reordering each…of the windows in the window manager.…To do this, we're going to create a custom editor.…Let's start by going into the Editor folder…where our palette is stored and create a new C-sharp class.…
