Join Jesse Freeman for an in-depth discussion in this video Hide and show content, part of Building Custom Tools to Extend the Unity IDE.
- [Voiceover] So now that we're using the serialized…object to pull fields off of our HelloWorld script,…let's take a look at adding a few more.…We'll open up the HelloWorld editor…and start adding some other properties…into our props array.…Let's go ahead and add target and message as well.…Now if we save this and go back into Unity,…select our new sprite,…you'll see the new fields are now being displayed…in the HelloWorld editor.…Sometimes when you're building out an editor…like this, you may want to hide some of the fields…and let the user see them only when they need it.…
One of the ways we can do that…is with a fold out.…Let's go back into our code…and at the top of our class…let's add a new private boolean called visible.…We're going to use this to store the value…of whether we show or hide the fold out.…Now above where we set up our props array…let's add some space and set visible to equal,…editor gui layout.foldout…and inside of foldout we're going to pass…the visible value back in…and we're going to give it a label called options.…
