If button highlighted

Hi there,

My question is a short one. I’ve been looking for a reference on a Canvas selectable button. The button itself does not call a function when clicked, it should just wait to see if it has been highlighted.

I have a script that was put directly on the button itself but I do not know how to write an “if statement” on “if this button is selected then…” in C#.

Add script containing this code to your Button:

using UnityEngine;
using UnityEngine.Events;
using UnityEngine.EventSystems;

public class YourScript : MonoBehaviour, IPointerEnterHandler, ISelectHandler
     public void OnPointerEnter(PointerEventData eventData)
         //do your stuff when highlighted
     public void OnSelect(BaseEventData eventData)
         //do your stuff when selected

cant find any new info on this topic.
OnPointerEnter() only works with the mouse.

How can I check if a button is highlighted while using keyboard navigation?

thank you
