    I'm just getting started with Unity GUI, and am having trouble getting GUIstyle to work with C#. To start with I'd like to expose GUI style varibles to the inspector, like in the documentation with js:

    Making a public variable GUIStyle
    http://unity3d.com/support/documentation/Components/gui-Customization.html

    I've tried to convert the example to C# but no GUI style varibles are exposed to the inspector (see code below). All I get is a field for a Game Object of type GUIstyle.

    Code (csharp):
    1.  
    2. using UnityEngine;
    3. using System.Collections;
    4.  
    5. public class GUIStyle : MonoBehaviour {
    6.  
    7.     public GUIStyle myGUIStyle;
    8.        
    9.     void OnGUI () {
    10. //      GUI.Button (new Rect (10,10,150,20), "I am a Custom Button", myGUIStyle); // this wont compile
    11.     }
    12. }
    13.  
    Any ideas?

    Try changing your script/class name to something other than GUIStyle.

    Ah, thanks very much. That was the problem.
