public class ExampleClass : MonoBehaviour { int CompareLayer(GameObject rhs, GameObject lhs) { int rval = SortingLayer.GetLayerValueFromID(rhs.GetComponent<SpriteRenderer>().sortingLayerID); int lval = SortingLayer.GetLayerValueFromID(lhs.GetComponent<SpriteRenderer>().sortingLayerID); return rval.CompareTo(lval); } }
