Title: [SOLVED] PlayMaker controls for interactions with Unity UI?
Post by: Breadman on May 13, 2017, 08:21:11 PM
Hello!

Does anyone know a way to listen for Unity UI events with PlayMaker? For example, if the mouse is dragged off of a UI button, do X.

Previously, I'd just have the Unity UI button "set bool isActive" on a gameobject with my PlayMaker FSM on it, so the button basically activate a gameobject which operate all my PlayMaker actions as soon as it's active. But this time I'm looking for a little more control - I'd like to do different things based on how the player interacts with the UI button.

Has anyone tried this before? Thankful for any tips or ideas!

I found the answer already, oops!

Just add an "event trigger" component to the button object, and then you have options for "mouse exit", "mouse enter" etc!

Hi,

 yes, this EventTrigger component is very useful, I am thinking of doing one like that dedicated to PlayMaker cause right now, it's a bit of a hack to plug PlayMaker with EventTrigger Component

 Bye,
