NGUI 3 Support / Re: Assets/NGUI/Editor/FreeType.dylib is missing
« on: April 16, 2014, 12:24:44 PM »
Just had an issue with this, which I thought I'd share.

Because my logged in user didn't have permission to copy to the /usr/local/lib folder NGUI would ask me to locate the source dylib, (which was already in the correct place).

To get around this I copied the file in command line:

sudo cp MY_UNITY_PATH/Assets/NGUI/Editor/FreeType.dylib /usr/local/lib/FreeType.dylib

I can see this tripping up a lot of people, so it would be nice to find a more user friendly solution, either with an instructional error message or a built in way to force the copy with permission. :-)

NGUI 3 Support / Re: Scroll View With Swipes

Just an update for any future googlers.

We tried using a 2 dimensional scroll view initially, but this didn't feel quite right because the different column's vertical position should be irrespective of each other. Using a single 2D scroll view would mean if you scrolled down for ages then swiped to the side we'd have to jump up to the right position which would be really weird behaviour.

Instead we decided to use nested scroll views, with the root scroll view being horizontal with a center on child script and a grid for the columns. Inside each column is a vertical scroll view, then based on the gesture we lock out the respective scroll views (so that the right scroll view receives the right gesture). This took quite a bit of extension code (and a lot of tweaking) but feels really great for the project.

A recent update added support for bitmap fonts to vary their font size. However this means whenever you drag a different bitmap font onto a label it keeps the old font size, so we have to manually put in the new font size. The previous workflow worked really well as we had different sized fonts and all that was needed to change font was a drag and drop, which made font replacement a breeze. It would be nice if the default behaviour was to adopt the new font's default size (maybe only if the current font size matches the previous font, so that people who customise the font size get it preserved, but people that don't get pixel perfect from the drag and drop.) Alternatively, the Label inspector could have a pixel perfect mode and only if that is disabled is customisation of the bitmap font size possible.

NGUI 3 Support / Scroll View With Swipes

Hi, we're looking to implement vertical scroll views with the capability to swipe horizontally between multiple streams. Is there any facility in NGUI to handle that already, or will we need to extend UIScrollView ourselves to achieve it?

This is something which the latest Twitter iOS client does, there are multiple timelines which you can swipe between, then scroll up and down:
