public UI.InputField.ContentType contentType ;


Specifies the type of the input text content.

The ContentType affects character validation, keyboard type used (on platforms with on-screen keyboards), whether the InputField accepts multiple lines, and whether the text is autocorrected (on platforms that offer input auto-correction) or is treated as a password where the characters are not shown directly.

void Start() { //Changes the character limit in the main input field. mainInputField.characterLimit = playerName.Length; } }
