Join Jesse Freeman for an in-depth discussion in this video Provide attributes to Inspector fields, part of Building Custom Tools to Extend the Unity IDE.
- [Voiceover] So now that we have a basic understanding…of how public fields are exposed in the Inspector,…let's take a look at some of the simple ways…we can clean up the way the Inspector looks.…Let's go back over to our Hello World script.…We're gonna add some attributes…to some of the fields on our class.…Let's take a look at adding…an attribute above our speed field.…An attribute is usually linked to a type…of custom class that stores additional data…about a field it's associated with.…
In this case, we're gonna create an open…and closed bracket for our attribute.…We're gonna use the RangeAttribute.…Inside of it, we're gonna set the range…that our speed is allowed to be set to.…We'll use 0f as the minimum and 10f…as the maximum.…Let's save our code and go back into Unity.…Once Unity recompiles the code,…you'll see that speed has been changed into a slider.…You can go ahead and drag the slider.…
We'll be limited to the value that…we defined in the attribute.…Let's go ahead and try to add…a larger value to the input field.…
