Join Jesse Freeman for an in-depth discussion in this video Create a button prefab, part of Unity 5: 2D Advanced UI.
- [Voiceover] Now we're ready to create a button…that we can use throughout our UI.…Let's go back to our Canvas,…and create a Button inside of it.…We're gonna change the width and height…to make this match the rest of our UI.…Let's set the width to 80 and the height to 18,…and we can move it over to the side,…so it's not running into our other text objects.…From here, let's change the Source Image to "button-up".…Now as you can see, our button doesn't look quite right.…
Let's select the texture itself, and…go into our button-up settings.…If we go into the Sprite Editor, and expand it out,…we're gonna be able to change something called the "Border"…which will allow this image to scale…while leaving some parts of it not scaling.…To explain how this works,…let's start dragging in from the edges.…Here you'll see that I'm moving…the border to the inside of this button,…so that the left, top, right, and bottom all equal three.…
Each platform has a different way of describing this.…You may have called it 9-slicing or scale nine,…
