Educational resources for learning Noesis GUI for Unity

21 Aug 2018, 02:23

We are thinking of using Unity + Noesis GUI for a large project but we are not really sure where the best resources live? After trying to follow the Unity tutorial on the youtube channel, ran into some issues with finding the root view and had to search through various examples on the github samples project to piece it together (video :

Do you have any recommendations for resources, I see the documentation for unity specific examples is only two articles? I don't mind paying for resources but I haven't found much. Ideally I would like to learn how to do things like changing "screens", binding data and updating the XAML UI? Keep in mind I am coming from a React/Web backend and not as familiar with WPF. Would looking into WPF tutorials be helpful?

Hi,

That video uses an old version of our software that exposed a different API to the user. With current version it will look like this:
void Start()
{
  NoesisView view = GetComponent<NoesisView>();
  Storyboard ani = (Storyboard)view.Content.FindResource("animation");
  Button btn = (Button)view.Content.FindName("button");
  btn.Click += (sender, args) =>
  {
    ani.Begin(view.Content);
  };
}
All tutorials from 1 to 19 are valid for Unity, they provide a wide overview of all topics required to develop UIs with NoesisGUI. There are only two specific tutorials for Unity to explain the peculiarities for that development framework.

If you need more examples there are plenty of them for WPF and XAML in internet/stackoverflow that can mostly be used with Noesis.

There is also a bunch of examples in our GitHub, many of them working in Unity.
