Very often I face the same problem:
Some script is changing some value (like transform) and it would be great to have a tool to print the stack of the code that make the modification.
In Visual Studio 2013 there is an option to add a “data breakpoint” which will stop the program whenever the given value changes.
Unfortunately, its for C++ only.
Usually I write a wrapper to debuglog whenever the wrapped code is accessed.
However, this solution consumes time
An option that you have is modify the var to a private field and become a property (with get and set). In this way you can use the breakpoint in the set function.
You can right-click a breakpoint and choose
Breakpoint Properties to open a dialog where you can set a condition. Some breakpoints should help you to drill down the code that acidentally modifies the properties.
I’ve put together an asset that allows you to capture/debug all thouse changes to transforms.
Watch on Youtube
That’s available on Asset Store.
There’s an open source approach
Editor extension to generate events that are executed before property set, eg. Transform-position, Transform-rotation, Transform-parent which allows to write more event driven code or debug propert...
