static function GUIContent () : GUIContent

Description

Constructor for GUIContent in all shapes and sizes

Build an empty GUIContent.

static function GUIContent (text : string) : GUIContent

Description

Build a GUIContent object containing only text.

When using the GUI, you don't need to create GUIContents for simple text strings - these two lines of code are functionally equivalent:

function OnGUI () {
GUI.Button (Rect (0, 0, 100, 20), "Click Me");
GUI.Button (Rect (0, 30, 100, 20), GUIContent ("Click Me"));
}

static function GUIContent (image : Texture) : GUIContent

Description

Build a GUIContent object containing only an image.

var icon : Texture;

function OnGUI () {
GUI.Button (Rect (0, 0, 100, 20), GUIContent (icon));
}

static function GUIContent (text : string, image : Texture) : GUIContent

Description

Build a GUIContent object containing both text and an image.

var icon : Texture;

function OnGUI () {
GUI.Button (Rect (0,0,100,20), GUIContent ("Click me", icon));
}

static function GUIContent (text : string, tooltip : string) : GUIContent

Description

Build a GUIContent containing some text. When the user hovers the mouse over it, the global GUI.tooltip is set to the tooltip.

function OnGUI () {
GUI.Button (Rect (0, 0, 100, 20), GUIContent ("Click me", "This is the tooltip"));

// If the user hovers the mouse over the button, the global tooltip gets set
GUI.Label (Rect (0, 40, 100, 40), GUI.tooltip);
}

static function GUIContent (image : Texture, tooltip : string) : GUIContent

static function GUIContent (text : string, image : Texture, tooltip : string) : GUIContent
