using UnityEngine; using UnityEngine.EventSystems;

public class Example : MonoBehaviour, IPointerDownHandler, IPointerUpHandler { //Detect current clicks on the GameObject (the one with the script attached) public void OnPointerDown(PointerEventData pointerEventData) { //Output the name of the GameObject that is being clicked Debug.Log(name + "Game Object Click in Progress"); }
