UIButton EventDelegate list is empty
« on: May 15, 2016, 11:37:28 AM »
When I save a working UIButton into a prefab and then instantiate it during runtime in my game, the EventDelegate list (onClick) it was carrying goes empty and thus button doesn't do any actions.

Can you please share a bit of code for the recreation of the EventDelegate list with code after I instantiate it? For example, I need to execute SomeFunction() with SomeParameter that belongs to SomeScript on SomeGameObject.

Or maybe there is some other way to tackle this issue. Thank you!

I'm guessing your event list is referencing an object outside of the button prefab.

This is simply not possible with the way Unity works. It's a limitation of the prefab system and makes perfect sense if you think about it. How can a prefab reference something that exists outside of it?
