Mesh Text and scripting behavior

August 30, 2010

Fisrt time we must create Empty game object.
Also this time we not use GUI Text game object.
(GUI TEXT is different  method that may just screen display can be use)

  And then, Actually Empty GameObject must necessary to Mesh renderer component and Text mesh component for viewpoort rendering. 
Ok. two component(Text mesh , Mesh renderer) adding your Empty Game Object.

You can find font material at below Fonts folder drop down ‘Courier font’.
That must need to rendering in your view screen for text mesh.

You can be able to font resize in inspector window and then have to resize font texture that is very important point.
Perhaps you should be resize to W4096 size or higher.because font mesh texture default size is W1024 or W2048 that is you see to low viewport texture quality.
(Ok. Next time that process when I will introduce about how to setting up about method of maintain quality. )

And then you must set to make collider using Box collider inside physics for picking to game object.


You have to making unity script for behavior calss.

function OnMouseEnter ()
renderer.material.color =; //color is attribute part and Color is class. 
function OnMouseExit ()
renderer.material.color = Color.white; //color is attribute part and Color is class.

See above a like writing script using java via unity script editor  or VS 2010.

And last you have to add this script component to two text game object that finish setting for this goal.


Color class REF.  
Components (r,g,b) define a color in RGB color space. Alpha component (a) defines transparency – alpha of one is completely opaque, alpha of zero is completely transparent.
<><><><><><><><><><><> <><><>


Red component of the color.


Green component of the color.


Blue component of the color.


Alpha component of the color.


The grayscale value of the color (Read Only)

this [int index]

Access the r, g, b,a components using [0], [1], [2], [3] respectively.
<><><><><><><><><><><> <><><>


Constructs a new Color with given r,g,b,a components.
<><><><><><><><><><><> <><><>


Returns a nicely formatted string of this color.
Class Variables
<><><><><><><><><><><> <><><>


Solid red. RGBA is (1, 0, 0, 1).


Solid green. RGBA is (0, 1, 0, 1).


Solid blue. RGBA is (0, 0, 1, 1).


Solid white. RGBA is (1, 1, 1, 1).


Solid black. RGBA is (0, 0, 0, 1).


Yellow. RGBA is weird (1, 235/255, 4/255, 1), but the color is nice to look at!


Cyan. RGBA is (0, 1, 1, 1).


Magenta. RGBA is (1, 0, 1, 1).


Gray. RGBA is (0.5, 0.5, 0.5, 1).


English spelling for gray. RGBA is the same (0.5, 0.5, 0.5, 1).


Completely transparent. RGBA is (0, 0, 0, 0).

operator –

Subtracts color b from color a. Each component is subtracted separately.

operator *

Multiplies two colors together. Each component is multiplied separately.

operator /

Divides color a by the float b. Each color component is scaled separately.


Interpolates between colors a and b by t.

operator Vector4

Colors can be implicitly converted to and from Vector4.
