Overview

The Watchers feature in InspectMe is a dynamic tool designed to enhance your debugging process in Unity. It allows you to monitor changes in real-time for various properties and fields of Unity objects.

Quick Overview

  • Functionality: Watchers observe and alert you to changes in values of Unity objects during runtime.
  • One Watcher per Members: Each inspected member within InspectMe's Tree View can have one Watcher.
  • Notification Options: Customize how you receive alerts (e.g., logs, beep sound, editor pauses, or pop-ups).

Setting Up a Watcher

  1. Attach a Watcher: Select a member from the Tree View and attach a Watcher. To attach a Watcher to a member:
    • Via Context Menu: Right-click on a member in the Tree View and select 'Add Watcher' from the context menu.
    • Via Menu Button: Use the menu button at the top of the Tree View to add a Watcher to the selected member.
    • Scripted Attachment: Directly add a Watcher in your script following an InspectMe() call. Customize settings to suit your project's needs.
  2. Configure Settings: Choose your preferred notification method and other settings like continuous monitoring or history tracking.
  3. Monitor Changes: Receive notifications based on your configured settings when values change.

Key Implementation Guideline

Watchers serve as essential debugging tools in the Unity Editor environment. They are not suitable for managing game logic in your production releases. Please ensure to use Watchers appropriately for debugging purposes only.
