How can I display tables / grids

January 20, 2021 - 12:37am #3

I am just starting out with Unity / Vuforia and an building up to writing an app that essentially displays user instructions to wearers of Hololens for specific pieces of equipment. (as a side note I know this is a common use-case so if anyone knows of any projects that might kick me off in the right direction that would be great).

I have mocked up some UI screens that will display the instructional text to the user and I can identify targets etc, but one thing that I will run into shortly is the fact that the user instructions often contain tables / grids. Is there a way to create or display tables using Text Mesh Pro or any other component?

The only other way I thought of doing it would be to open a new UI window to the user with a browser and convert the table to HTML to display. But that seems really messy and disjointed.

Any ideas welcomed. Thanks.

We demo in our Hololens Sample, UI with TextMeshPro.

Please go over our Hololens samples available here: https://assetstore.unity.com/publishers/24484. There are 2, one for 2019.4 and the second for 2020.1.

Thank you.

Thanks, I've imported the Hololens project as suggested and I can see there are 4 scenes. However, none of the UIs in any scene seem to show a Table / Grid unless I'm missing something. So I'm not sure if my query has been answered?

Also, I'm getting the following error on running the sample:

MissingReferenceException: The object of type 'Transform' has been destroyed but you are still trying to access it.

Is this an issue with the sample project or my installation?
