public static method SetTransformParent(transform: Transform, newParent: Transform, name: string): void;
public static void SetTransformParent(Transform transform, Transform newParent, string name);


transformThe Transform component whose parent is to be changed.
newParentThe parent Transform to be assigned.
nameThe name of this action, to be stored in the Undo history buffer.


Sets the parent of transform to the new parent and records an undo operation.

This is equivalent to calling transform.parent = newParent, but it additionally records the undo operation.
