- [Voiceover] Now we're ready to create…our difficulty window class.…Let's go back in to the windows folder…and create a new c# script.…We'll call this difficulty window.…Let's open up the difficulty window…inside of our code editor.…We'll want to replace the mono behavior…with a generic window.…Also we're going to want to import…the Unity engine UI name space.…Now let's delete the start method…and create a new public method…called On Select.…Inside of On Select,…we'll call the on next window method…that's part of the generic window.…
Now this window's going to be a little bit different.…Since we need to use the toggle buttons,…we're not going to have a select button…on the UI.…Instead, we're going to take control of the UI…and listen for the input directly…from the input manager.…In this case,…when we want to move on to the next screen,…we're going to listen for the submit button…to be pushed down.…In the update method,…let's create a new condition…to look for the input, get button down…and pass in the word submit as a string.…
