public Vector3 eulerAngles;


Returns or sets the euler angle representation of the rotation.

A rotation that rotates euler.z degrees around the z axis, euler.x degrees around the x axis, and euler.y degrees around the y axis (in that order). The euler can be set for, or read from, the quaternion.

using UnityEngine;

// eulerAngles // Generate a cube that has different color on each face. This shows // the orientation of the cube as determined by the eulerAngles. // Update the orientation every 2 seconds.

public class ExampleScript : MonoBehaviour { private Quaternion quaternion; private GameObject cube; private float timeCount = 0.0f;

void Awake() { quaternion = new Quaternion(0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f); cube = CreateCube(); }

void Update() { if (timeCount > 2.0f) { // Every two seconds generate a random rotation for // the cube. The rotation is a quaternion. quaternion = Random.rotation; cube.transform.rotation = quaternion;

timeCount = 0.0f; }

timeCount = timeCount + Time.deltaTime; }

// note that localEulerAngles will give the same result // GUI.Label(new Rect(10,90,250,50), cube.transform.localEulerAngles.ToString("F3")); }
