public static method Disc(rotation: Quaternion, position: Vector3, axis: Vector3, size: float, cutoffPlane: bool, snap: float): Quaternion;
public static Quaternion Disc(Quaternion rotation, Vector3 position, Vector3 axis, float size, bool cutoffPlane, float snap);


rotation The rotation of the disc.
position The center of the disc.
axis The axis to rotate around.
size The size of the disc in world space See Also:HandleUtility.GetHandleSize.
cutoffPlane If true, only the front-facing half of the circle is draw / draggable. This is useful when you have many overlapping rotation axes (like in the default rotate tool) to avoid clutter.
snap The grid size to snap to.


Quaternion The new rotation value modified by the user's interaction with the handle. If the user has not moved the handle, it will return the same value as you passed into the function.


Make a 3D disc that can be dragged with the mouse. Note: Use HandleUtility.GetHandleSize where you might want to have constant screen-sized handles.

Disc Handle on the Scene View.

no example available in JavaScript
// Name this script "DiscHandleEditor"
using UnityEngine;
using UnityEditor;

[CustomEditor(typeof(DiscHandle))] [CanEditMultipleObjects] public class DiscHandleEditor : Editor { public void OnSceneGUI() { DiscHandle t = (target as DiscHandle);

EditorGUI.BeginChangeCheck(); Quaternion rot = Handles.Disc(t.rot, t.transform.position, new Vector3(1, 1, 0), 5, false, 1);

if (EditorGUI.EndChangeCheck()) { Undo.RecordObject(target, "Disc Rotate"); t.rot = rot; t.Update(); } } }

And the script attached to this Handle:

no example available in JavaScript
// Name this script "DiscHandle"
using UnityEngine;
public class DiscHandle : MonoBehaviour
    public Quaternion rot = Quaternion.identity;
    public void Update()
        transform.rotation = rot;
