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


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.
