public static Profiling.Sampler Get(string name);


nameProfiler Sampler name.


Sampler Sampler object which represents specific profiler label.


Returns Sampler object for the specific CPU Profiler label.

You can use this function to get a Sampler associated with a built-in or custom label. The name parameter is the same you can see in Hierarchy view of the Profiler Window. If label with the specified name parameter does not exist or not available in the Player, an invalid Sampler object will be returned. You can use Sampler.isValid to verify if Sampler is valid.

using UnityEngine;
using UnityEngine.Profiling;

public class ExampleClass : MonoBehaviour { Sampler sampler; void Start() { sampler = Sampler.Get("BehaviourUpdate"); } }

Get can be used to obtain any existing Sampler including custom Sampler. Return value is always Sampler type and can not be casted to CustomSampler.

Note: At the moment all built-in counters are available only in the Editor and Development Players. Get in non-Development Players returns invalid Sampler.
