Join Jesse Freeman for an in-depth discussion in this video Modify what the Inspector displays, part of Building Custom Tools to Extend the Unity IDE.
- [Voiceover] Now, let's talk about adding…some custom fields to the new editor we created.…We'll open up the HelloWorld script again.…Inside of our HelloWorldEditor,…within the OnInspectorGUI method,…let's add at the top of our method…a call to create a label field.…We're gonna do this by calling…a static method on the EditorGUILayout class.…Here, you'll be able to call all different types of methods…that create different UI inside of the editor.…For now, let's focus on a basic LabelField.…
The LabelField has two arguments.…The first being the label itself to display…and the second are any GUI layout options…or styling that you'd wanna add.…There are also other overload methods…so let's take a quick look at writing out…Hello Word, and the second argument we'll pass in…will be another string called Description Test.…Now, let's save this LabelField…and go back into Unity and take a look at what happens.…As you can see, at the top of our Hello World Editor,…on the left, we have the label Hello World,…and on the right, we have our Description Test.…
