« on: March 12, 2013, 10:23:13 pm »
Greetings folks.
Now that its nearing completion, I am now able to share the next major feature in 2D Toolkit.

I am pleased to announce 2D Toolkit UI.
Webplayer demo here

Features:

- Light weight code, ultra fast.
- Lots of control prefabs. Use as a basis for customization, or create your own.
  • Buttons
  • Checkboxes
  • Radio Buttons
  • Textboxes
  • Lists
  • Sliders
  • Progress bars
  • Scrollbars
  • Scrolling areas
- Multi touch support, including on screen keyboard on iOS / Android
- Full mobile / webplayer / PC / Mac support. Flash will be supported in the final version.
- Works in Unity Free & Pro

Download the alpha preview version here and give it a whirl.
Your feedback is most appreciated.

Note: This is an alpha preview. Code interfaces are likely to change before release.

Whoa.... that seems AWESOME.
Will definitely give it a try. Would love to get rid of my clumsy UI code...

This could be great! I was just thinking about buying NGUI, but if 2D Toolkit is getting this stuff, I might not need to.

Is this getting added to the 2D Toolkit we already own or is this going to be an add on purchase?

I have no announcements to make on pricing / whether it will be bundled with 2D Toolkit, but everyone who has a registered copy of 2D Toolkit before final release gets a copy regardless.

Unikron, that is kind of you.

I for one am completely comfortable with an extra payment for this. 2D Toolkit is single handedly responsible for our ability to develop 2D games in Unity. We, as users, should have an interest and an obligation to keep it alive and its creator happy.

I'm very excited to see this integrated with 2D Toolkit. One of the thins I find important in any UI development toolkit is the use of some reliable layout managers (Linear Layouts, Relative Layouts, Grids etc..) Will there be support for these sorts of elements in your final version?

Omgosh, this is exactly what I wanted! I was already writing my own system in place for it, but this looks like it works beautifully! Great job!! :)

Edit:
A cool and AMAZING feature to add would have a draggable tilelist, like, you make a tilelist item, be able to drag it above another and it replaces its spot. Just figured I would give my 2 cents.

I'd love to see these as well, the one thing almost all the 3rd party UI libraries for Unity is missing (even NGUI).

Definitely not in the first release - my priority for that is to get all bugs ironed out and the code interface finalized. However, it will be relatively high priority after 1.0 is released.

Are you planning on creating a new Forum for UI? A place where we can enter bugs, etc?

-- update --

just tried out the alpha -- very impressive so far -- one note -- i was unable to get the text editor to work -- the web demo seems to work fine -- just so you know

this is going to be a sweet asset.

I opened up the demo scene and ran it. None of my mouse clicks are being registered. Am I missing something here?
