Join Jesse Freeman for an in-depth discussion in this video The window life cycle, part of Building Custom Tools to Extend the Unity IDE.
- [Voiceover] Now that we've created our test window,…let's take some time to look at the life cycle…of the window itself.…We'll open up our test window in MonoDevelop.…Below the Init method, let's go down and create a new method…that will get triggered whenever the window gets focused.…We'll call this private, it's return type will be void,…and we'll call it OnFocus.…Inside, we'll create a debug log statement…that simply states OnFocus.…Next, let's copy this method and paste it below.…
Here, we're going to change the method…to say OnLostFocus…and we'll change the debug log statement…to OnLostFocus as well.…Now, let's save this and go back into the Unity editor.…We'll open up our console so that we can see these changes.…If we go ahead open up the test window,…you'll see that OnFocus is being called.…If we click outside of the window,…you'll see that LostFocus gets called as well.…If we go back and reopen the window, OnFocus is called.…
Let's go ahead and dock this window,…and let's clear everything that's in the console.…
