Post news RSS LBKR v2.32 Release

Hello again everyone! I'm glad to say that I finally managed to fix the weird UI behaviour for LBKR, and with that said it's time to publish the 2.32 update!

Posted by on

The issue I had with the Unity Engine’s UI system not properly rendering scroll panels was relatively easy to work around after all, I used to adjust the size of the content elements through code earlier, and I initially believed that this caused the Unity UI to skip some sort of Refresh-call. I therefore removed all such code and added Unity’s built-in auto-layout components that properly position and resize content that is added dynamically.

I got the feeling that the UI is now behaving more consistently, and above all layout is more accurate (and I could strip away a whole lot of code.) but the problem still remained, atleast for more than half of the scroll panels. After some further testing I noticed that the game (seemingly random) would resize the content elements of the scroll panels to a size of 0px. I ended up with forcing those content elements to stretch out and fill the entire scroll panel through code, which seem to have fixed the problem. I just feel that it was a quirky and unnecessarily weird way to have to solve it.
