    // Label Element Constructor:
    // Label label = new Label("Content");
    Label label = UIELayout.Label("Content", rootVisualElement);
  • class UIELayout for elements which in UnityEngine.UIElements

  • class EditorUIELayout for elements which in UnityEditor.UIElements

Method chaining

  • UIEEx provide method chaining for elements, you can use Set[Property] to set element property.

  • Check all supported properties in ElementExtension api documentation.

    Button button = UIELayout.Button(rootVisualElement)


  • EditorWindow Sample

    public class UIEExSample : EditorWindow
        [SerializeField] private int clickedCount = 0;
        [MenuItem("Tools/UIEEx Sample")]
        private static void ShowWindow()
            var window = GetWindow<UIEExSample>();

                    label.SetText("Button clicked " + clickedCount + " times");
