    In the Core Samples, the DefaultTrackableEventHandler.cs script will enable both 3d models and canvases that are children of the Image Target upon detection. If you add a canvas and various UI elements as a child of an Image Target, it should be enabling and disabling upon tracking found and lost. Could you give this a try and let me know if it works for you?

    Thanks!

    One approach to achieving this would be to display some UI that has this message and then have a script that listens for target detections have access to this UI. When a detection occurs, you can hide the UI and when tracking is lost you can show the UI again.

    Hey, how would I add a UI that displays flat on the screen (like and overlay) and not part of the 3D environment? for examples, button for selecting models.
