    So I've been experimenting with the UI and came up with an idea. When the game starts, the button should not appear and when the game ends the button would appear. I did this by placing the button UI as a child on an empty game object (which works) but I'm wondering if there's a code that let's you disable the button (interactable). If I use button.interactable the button is showing but not clickable. If there are other ways do enlighten me, thanks!


    (sorry if I posted on the wrong forum, in any case have me notified :D )

    Yeah, this is the one I used. Just wondering if there's another way other than making it a child of a game object.

    There is also Button.Interactable

    Just disable the button object itself

    GameObject.SetActive(false). It will disappear.
    Button itself is a GameObject. To be precise, it is multiple gameobjects, last time I checked.
    Unity object model - Everything is a gameobject. Use that.

    Oh I see. I feel stupid now since I create an empty game object then drag the button onto it, where you can just directly drag the button to make it a reference D:
