public static void Space(float width, bool expand);


width The width of the empty space. Use this for horizontal layout.
expand Option passed to enable or disable horizontal expansion.


Make a small space between the previous control and the following.

Custom inspector that shows the X,Y,Z,W quaternion components of a transform.
