how to instantiate prefab with Resources.Load ?

I’ve went several times through this Unity Manual it’s always missing as GameObject on end and even if I correct that error it always thinks my instance is Null how do I instantiate a Prefab? so I don’t need to duplicate every prefab?

what I want to achive is: Prefab in instantiated Object and not GameObject as him self

GameObject instance = Instantiate(Resources.Load("Hatchet"));

GameObject instance = Instantiate(Resources.Load("Hatchet", typeof(GameObject))) as GameObject;

ArgumentException: The thing you want to instantiate is null.
UnityEngine.Object.CheckNullArgument (System.Object arg, System.String message) (at C:/BuildAgent/work/812c4f5049264fad/Runtime/ExportGenerated/Editor/UnityEngineObject.cs:71)
UnityEngine.Object.Instantiate (UnityEngine.Object original) (at C:/BuildAgent/work/812c4f5049264fad/Runtime/ExportGenerated/Editor/UnityEngineObject.cs:58)
Inventory.Start () (at Assets/Player/Inventory.cs:38)

Make sure that “Hatchet.prefab” file exists in Resources folder and ‘Resources’ folder exists in ‘Assets’ folder.
It should work then.

make sure your folder name is Resources. then create a prefab…

Hi sorry for asking can u solve my problem , i think almost same problem as him, this is the error code

ArgumentException: The Object you want to instantiate is null.
UnityEngine.Object.CheckNullArgument (System.Object arg, System.String message) (at /Users/builduser/buildslave/unity/build/Runtime/Export/UnityEngineObject.bindings.cs:381)
UnityEngine.Object.Instantiate (UnityEngine.Object original) (at /Users/builduser/buildslave/unity/build/Runtime/Export/UnityEngineObject.bindings.cs:240)
Sample.ImageTarget_DynamicLoad_ManualPlay.LoadVideo () (at Assets/EasyAR/Scripts/ImageTarget_DynamicLoad_ManualPlay.cs:40)
Sample.ImageTarget_DynamicLoad_ManualPlay.Start () (at Assets/EasyAR/Scripts/ImageTarget_DynamicLoad_ManualPlay.cs:35)

The code on the line are respectively:
cs 35 . LoadVideo()
cs 40 . GameObject subGameObject = Instantiate(Resources.Load(“TransparentVideo”, typeof(GameObject))) as GameObject;

how can I solve this. Thank You.

Try to preload the prefab before you instantiate it. You can use Start() method.

GameObject _go;

void Start() 
     // Make sure that you put your prefab in the folder Assets/Resources
     _go = Resources.Load("MyPrefab") as GameObject;

void Update()
     if (Input.GetMouseButtonDown(0))
          Instantiate(_go, transform.position + Vector3.up, Quaternion.identity);
