Custom Controls in C# with Unity3D

17 Dec 2017, 21:36

Hey,

I am currently evaluating Noesis for a new project and was wondering whether it is now, with version 2.0 being out, possible to create custom controls in C#.
While there are many posts here about that topic, all of them are at least a couple of years old.

Regards
Alexander

Hi,

In Unity3D you can create custom controls but with some limitations, as C# API doesn't expose protected virtual methods from base classes.
For example, if your control needs to do something when a mouse button is pressed, you have to hook to MouseDown event, instead of overriding OnMouseDown method as you would do in WPF.

In a lot of scenarios this is enough for creating custom controls, but as this is not perfect, we will expose all base class protected virtual methods in future versions.

It's now Mar 28 2019. and we are now having the same requirment. so when will you support to override the protected virtual methods in C#. We are eager to use this feature!
