public static Object[] FindObjectsOfTypeAll(Type type);

Parameters

typeType of the class to match while searching.

Returns

Object[] An array of objects whose class is type or is derived from type.

Description

Returns a list of all objects of Type type.

This function can return any type of Unity object that is loaded, including game objects, prefabs, materials, meshes, textures, etc. It will also list internal objects. Therefore be careful with the way you handle the returned objects. Contrary to Object.FindObjectsOfType this function will also list disabled objects.

Note: This function is very slow and is not recommended to be used every frame.

using UnityEngine;
using System.Collections;

public class ExampleScript : MonoBehaviour { // This script displays the number of allocated Unity objects by type. // This is useful for finding leaks. Knowing the type of object // (mesh, texture, sound clip, game object) that is getting leaked is // the first step. You could then print the names of all leaked assets of that type.

void Start() { print("All " + Resources.FindObjectsOfTypeAll(typeof(UnityEngine.Object)).Length); print("Textures " + Resources.FindObjectsOfTypeAll(typeof(Texture)).Length); print("AudioClips " + Resources.FindObjectsOfTypeAll(typeof(AudioClip)).Length); print("Meshes " + Resources.FindObjectsOfTypeAll(typeof(Mesh)).Length); print("Materials " + Resources.FindObjectsOfTypeAll(typeof(Material)).Length); print("GameObjects " + Resources.FindObjectsOfTypeAll(typeof(GameObject)).Length); print("Components " + Resources.FindObjectsOfTypeAll(typeof(Component)).Length); } }
using UnityEngine;

using System.Collections.Generic;

public class ExampleScript : MonoBehaviour { // This script finds all the objects in Scene, excluding Prefabs:

List<GameObject> GetAllObjectsInScene() { List<GameObject> objectsInScene = new List<GameObject>();

foreach (GameObject go in Resources.FindObjectsOfTypeAll(typeof(GameObject)) as GameObject[]) { if (go.hideFlags == HideFlags.NotEditable || go.hideFlags == HideFlags.HideAndDontSave) continue;

public static T[] FindObjectsOfTypeAll();

Description

Returns a list of all objects of Type T.

This function can return any type of Unity object that is loaded, including game objects, prefabs, materials, meshes, textures, etc. It will also list internal stuff, therefore please be extra careful the way you handle the returned objects. Contrary to Object.FindObjectsOfType this function will also list disabled objects.

Please note that this function is very slow and is not recommended to be used every frame.

Display the stored GameObject names:

using UnityEngine;
using UnityEditor;
using System.Collections.Generic;

public class ExampleScript : MonoBehaviour { // Find all of the GameObjects in the Resources folder // Add a GameObject called "Player" so at least 1 GameObject will be stored. // However, there are nearly twenty GameObjects.

void Start() { string s = ""; GameObject[] gameObjects; int count = 0;

GameObject player = new GameObject("Player"); gameObjects = Resources.FindObjectsOfTypeAll<GameObject>();

foreach (GameObject go in gameObjects) { s = s + go.name;

if ((count == 4)) { s = s + "\n"; count = 0; } else { s = s + ' '; count++; } }

Debug.Log(s);

// Prints: //Player SceneLight SceneLight SceneLight SceneCamera //GameObject InternalIdentityTransform torus cube cylinder //sphere PreviewMaterials Cylinder HandlesGO Cone //Cube Sphere Directional Light Main Camera } }
