This function is called when the MonoBehaviour will be destroyed.

OnDestroy will only be called on game objects that have previously been active.

function OnDestroy () {
    print("Script was destroyed");
using UnityEngine;
using System.Collections;

public class ExampleClass : MonoBehaviour { void OnDestroy() { print("Script was destroyed"); } }

OnDestroy cannot be a co-routine.
