[SOLVED] Importing Excel Data into Unity Gui
« on: January 28, 2016, 06:21:46 PM »
Is it possible to import Excel Data into Unity and have it show up as onscreen text through the GUI using Playmaker?

Scenario: I have trajectory data that is in a spreadsheet. I want to show that data in the gui as the rocket is moving across it's animated path when I hit Play. It doesn't have to match the rocket, just needs to show the data.

If so can someone explain how?

I think your best bet would be to set up your an XML Schema for your Excel data, and, and save it out as XML.  From there you can pull it in using DataMaker/ArrayMaker, which you can add to PlayMaker via the EcoSystem.

Watch this tutorial, and you'll be in business . . .
