Join Kelley Hecker for an in-depth discussion in this video The HUD script, part of Build a Match 3 Game with Unity.
- [Voiceover] Now that we've created all…the UI elements for our HUD…we need to update the values to match the game.…We'll create a script with functions…that will update our UI elements.…Create a new script called HUD.…First we'll add a variable to store…our reference to the level,…then we'll add variables to store references…to all of the UI elements that need to get updated.…These will be the remaining text,…the remaining subtext, the target text,…the target subtext, the score text,…and our star images.…
The text objects are of type UnityEngine.UI.Text…and the image objects are of type UnityEngine.UI.Image.…We'll also add two private variables.…One is the index of the star image…that's currently being displayed.…We'll call this star I-D-X.…The other variable is whether or not the game has ended.…We'll need this later to display a game over screen.…In the editor rename the canvas object…to game UI canvas.…
Add the HUD script,…and hook up all the references in the inspector.…When you're done your HUD component…should look like this.…
