    I am using a ReorderableList. It is a list of a base type. I am intercepting the onAddDropdownCallback so that I select and object type create this type of object which subclasses from the base type used in the list and add it to the ReorderableList. But I don't see a way of doing this since the ReorderableList does not have an Add method. Does anyone have any ideas for me?

    What you are trying to do is good programing practice, but I'm afraid Unity's serialization does not support subclasses.

    I was met with the same disappointment :(
