Title: Unity 4.6 and Canvas Actions?[SOLVED]
Post by: cmonroy on November 01, 2014, 06:08:20 PM
Hi.

I'm playing with Unity 4.6 and its new GUI canvas. Are any Playmaker actions available for this?

Thank you!

Hi,

 I am working on it. the RectTransform is now completly covered. It will become available as PlaMaker 1.8 is released.

 for Ui elements, some actions are already available around for set and get text, and I'll be releasing more action around sliders and other Ui elements in the next few days.

 right now, you can use "get property" and "set property" to access most of it but proper custom actions is of course better in the long run.

Bye,

 Jean

Hi jeanfabre,

Sorry for that matter probably already asked (I was much absent), but, he has a date for version 1.8 of PlayMaker or not yet?

Thank you for your work and good luck.

Hi,

 We are already well into the Release Cycle, so even without a clear eta, it's coming very soon, I have lots of stuff in the starting block ready for public launch as soon as 1.8 is out :) but again, it's better that we properly iron out and get a stable, reliable 1.8 then half an update which would be frustrating. So many things where improved, added, tweaked! It's a major release in my opinion.

 Bye,

 Jean

Are Arrays going to be a part of this update?
Also I am looking forward to the UI actions
and are you planning some new tutorials for PM?
Thanks and happy new year to you all.

Arrays are in the 1.8 update and UI integration is still being developed. We do publish new tutorials and videos regularly on the YouTube channel, I suppose its not as frequent as everyone would like, though.

We made some actions when it was first put into beta. They should still work.

Get and Set property is very capable for manipulating the UI elements if there isn't an action available yet.

Title: Storing CanvasGroup into Variable
Post by: suppenhuhn on December 27, 2015, 05:53:34 AM
Hi,

i'm asking myself how to store the "canvas group" component to an variable in playmaker.

Turn on/off interactable works when i drag the canvas group component directly into the state-panel and the set property this directly.

But what if i'd like to store a canvas-group into a variable ( shown in inspector ) and work with this variable within playmaker - is this possible ?

i'm using unity 5.3.x + playmaker 1.8 beta
