public static function AssetPathToGUID(path: string): string;
public static string AssetPathToGUID(string path);

Parameters

path Filesystem path for the asset.

Returns

string GUID

Description

Get the GUID for the asset at path.

All paths are relative to the project folder, for example: "Assets/MyTextures/hello.png".

@MenuItem("AssetDatabase/AssetPathToGUID")
static function Example()
{
    var t: String = AssetDatabase.AssetPathToGUID("Assets/texture.jpg");
    Debug.Log(t);
}
using UnityEngine;
using UnityEditor;

public class Example : MonoBehaviour { [MenuItem("AssetDatabase/AssetPathToGUID")] static void Doit() { string t = AssetDatabase.AssetPathToGUID("Assets/texture.jpg"); Debug.Log(t); } }

If the asset does not exist AssetPathToGUID will return nothing.
