Method Descriptions

  • void add_focusable ( Control control )

If any of the controls added can gain keyboard focus, add it here. This ensures that focus will be restored if the inspector is refreshed.

If one or several properties have changed, this must be called. field is used in case your editor can modify fields separately (as an example, Vector3.x). The changing argument avoids the editor requesting this property to be refreshed (leave as false if unsure).

Gets the edited object.

  • String get_edited_property ( )

Gets the edited property. If your editor is for a single property (added via EditorInspectorPlugin.parse_property), then this will return the property.

  • String get_tooltip_text ( ) const

Override if you want to allow a custom tooltip over your property.

  • void set_bottom_editor ( Control editor )

Adds controls with this function if you want them on the bottom (below the label).

  • void update_property ( ) virtual

When this virtual function is called, you must update your editor.
