public bool SetDestination(Vector3 target);


target The target point to navigate to.


bool True if the destination was requested successfully, otherwise false.


Sets or updates the destination thus triggering the calculation for a new path.

Note that the path may not become available until after a few frames later. While the path is being computed, pathPending will be true. If a valid path becomes available then the agent will resume movement.

public class Example : MonoBehaviour { NavMeshAgent myNavMeshAgent; void Start() { myNavMeshAgent = GetComponent<NavMeshAgent>(); }

void Update() { if (Input.GetMouseButtonDown(0)) { SetDestinationToMousePosition(); } }

void SetDestinationToMousePosition() { RaycastHit hit; Ray ray = Camera.main.ScreenPointToRay(Input.mousePosition); if (Physics.Raycast(ray, out hit)) { myNavMeshAgent.SetDestination(hit.point); } } }
