Is possible to be told after serialization occurs for objects, in the Editor?
I know that Unity3D serializes some variables (as described in the SerializeField manual page).
After importing a script something in my project, clicking play, or going back from play mode, Unity3D recreates all the objects in memory, and reset all serializable fields. That’s why when I Debug.Log() a public variable (like int), it says the default value, but when I access it with other script it says the previous stored (serialized) value.
What I want to know is when serialization takes place, to sew my variables in the editor to a more proper object. The manual refers to this process of sewing:
Hint: Unity won’t serialize Dictionary, however you could store a List<> for keys and a List<> for values, and sew them up in a non serialized dictionary on Awake(). This doesn’t solve the problem of when you want to modify the dictionary and have it “saved” back, but it is a handy trick in a lot of other cases.
Thing is, in the Editor I can’t use the Awake function. I’ve tried OnEnable, OnBecameVisible, Start, Awake and Reset with no help: none of these functions are called after I make a change in the scripts. The constructor is called, but as I mentioned earlier, it contains the constructor values.
Any help would be much appreciated.
