    Hello,

    How can I use the trigger on the Vive controller to change material on an object in Unity?

    I already have the space bar set up to do this, but want to switch it to the vive trigger which actually changes the material.

    I have found various tutorials for vive controller input, but the scripting isn't recognized. I should be on the most updated version of Steam. I have put using Valve.VR at the top of the script.

    Specifically what is not recognized is the _default part of

    SteamVR_Input._default.inActions.GrabPinch.GetStateDown(SteamVR_Input_Sources.Any)

    Thanks,
    C

    Hi,

    Steamvr change the way you get the actions, but you can try it :

    Code (CSharp):
    1.  
    2.     private void Start()
    3.     {
    4.         SteamVR_Actions.default_GrabPinch.AddOnStateDownListener(TriggerPressed, SteamVR_Input_Sources.Any);
    5.     }
    6.  
    7.     private void TriggerPressed(SteamVR_Action_Boolean fromAction, SteamVR_Input_Sources fromSource)
    8.     {
    9.         //Do something
    10.     }
