Description

Get a rect for an Editor control.

When creating a new Editor control it is a sound design to implement the actual control without relying on GUILayout and instead have the control take a Rect as parameter, similar to the controls in the EditorGUI class. This ensures the control can also be used in for example a PropertyDrawer, which does not allow GUILayout.

Once a non-layout version of the control is implemented, a layout version can easily be made as well, which simply calls into the non-layout version. In order to get a rect fitting for the control, the GetControlRect function can be used.
