Button trigger

A button is triggered when a user presses it. Two types of button are available for you to use - 3D buttons and UI buttons.
Examples of a 3D button (left) and UI button (right)
You position both types of button within the environment. The 3D button includes a frame and depth. It's visible from all angles, and so you could place it floating in the environment. The UI button is a flat rectangle. You could, for example, use it to create interfaces on surfaces in the environment.
To test your triggers while in the Content Editor, select play (
) on the playback controls, and then hide your editor panel. You can then select the buttons.

Button effect options

In addition to the effect options described in Common effect options and Trigger effect options, buttons include an option for the text that appears on the button. UI buttons also have additional presentation options.
