Join Jesse Freeman for an in-depth discussion in this video Serialize data, part of Building Custom Tools to Extend the Unity IDE.
- [Voiceover] Now in order for us to save our items,…we're going to need to convert them…into some type of serialized data.…In this case, we're going to take our SaveItem…and turn it into a string.…Let's go into our project and in the Scripts folder,…open up the SaveTest in MonoDevelop.…Now in our SaveItem, we're going to go ahead…and create a new ToString method that will convert…the properties of our class into a string.…Since ToString already exists on objects,…we're going to need to use the new keyword…in order to create and override that default method.…
Let's start by making this public.…Use the keyword new.…Our return type is going to be a string,…and we'll create the method ToString.…Inside, we're going to return this string that we create.…We'll start by taking the name…and concatenating it with a comma.…We'll then go ahead and take the position X,…concatenate it again with a comma,…and the position Y.…Now we'll have a very basic string…that will represent the name…and the position of the saved item.…
