public static bool developerConsoleVisible;


Reports whether the development console is visible. The development console cannot be made to appear using:

using UnityEngine;

public class OpenDevConsoleScript : MonoBehaviour { void Start() { Debug.developerConsoleVisible = true; } }

As it will automatically appear once an error has been logged. For example:

using UnityEngine;

public class LogErrorScript : MonoBehaviour { void Start() { Debug.LogError("I am an Error"); } }

However, you can close the development console once opened by using:

using UnityEngine;

public class CloseDevConsoleScript : MonoBehaviour { void Start() { Debug.developerConsoleVisible = false; } }
