The Assert class contains assertion methods for setting invariants in the code.

All method calls will be conditionally included only in a development build, unless specified explicitly. See BuildOptions.ForceEnableAssertions. The inclusion of an assertion is controlled by the UNITY_ASSERTIONS define.

A failure of an assertion method does not break the control flow of the execution. On a failure, an assertion message is logged (LogType.Assert) and the execution continues. If Assert.raiseExceptions is set to true, an AssertionException is thrown instead of logging a message.

If a debugger is attached to the project (System.Diagnostics.Debugger.IsAttached is true), AssertionException will be thrown in order to pause the excecution and invoke the debugger.

using UnityEngine;
using UnityEngine.Assertions;

public class AssertionExampleClass : MonoBehaviour { public int health; public GameObject go;

void Update() { // You expect the health never to be equal to zero Assert.AreNotEqual(0, health);

// The referenced GameObject should be always (in every frame) be active Assert.IsTrue(go.activeInHierarchy); } }
