Possible to have 2 Ui camera attached to UI Manager?
« on: August 05, 2013, 11:20:02 am »
Hi,

Is there any solution for me to implement 2 UI Camera On the screen and both are attached to UI Manager?

Currently I am thinking to do a level map that has some UI Button on the screen(UI Camera) and Level Button inside the map(Map Camera). I want to zoom and move on the Map and click on the Level Button meanwhile the UI Button UI Camera will stay its own size. But UIManager only can set 1 Camera for receiving input. Any Suggestion?

Thanks .

No, you can only have one UI camera right now. The reason is to avoid keeping a multiple references to objects, but there could be potential solutions to this in a later version.

No its not impossible, it means you'll have to write some code to do it. If you make it so you can have multiple UIManagers (disable the code that stops you from doing so), you can fairly easily make them work with multiple cameras & layers.
