ToggleContainer Component Reference

ToggleContainer is not a visible UI component but it can be used to modify the behavior of a set of Toggle components. Toggles that belong to the same ToggleContainer could only have one of them to be switched on at a time.

toggle-container

Note: all the first layer child node containing the Toggle component will auto be added to the container.

Click the Add Component button at the bottom of the Inspector panel and select UI/ToggleContainer to add the ToggleContainer component to the node.

To use ToggleContainer, please refer to the ToggleContainer API documentation and the toggleContainer scene of the test-cases-3d project.

ToggleContainer Properties

Property Functions Explanation
AllowSwitchOff If it is enabled, then the toggle button can be checked and unchecked repeatedly when it is clicked. If it is disabled, it will make sure there is always only one toggle could be checked and the already checked toggle can't be unchecked
CheckEvents List type, default is null. Each event added by the user is composed of the node reference, component name and a response function. Please see the ToggleContainer Event section below for details

ToggleContainer Event

For event structure you can refer to the Button documentation.

The ToggleContainer event callback has two parameters, the first one is the ToggleContainer itself and the second is the customEventData.

Detailed Explanation

The ToggleContainer won't be used alone and it usually be used with Toggle to implement the RatioButton.

Add a callback through the script code

The event callback added by this method is the same as the event callback added by the editor, all added by code. First you need to construct a EventHandler object, and then set the corresponding target, component, handler and customEventData parameters.

import { _decorator, Component, Event, Node, ToggleContainerComponent, EventHandler } from "cc";
const { ccclass, property } = _decorator;

@ccclass("example")
export class example extends Component {
    onLoad(){
        const containerEventHandler = new EventHandler();
        // This Node is the node to which your event processing code component belongs
        containerEventHandler.target = this.node;
        // This is the code file name
        containerEventHandler.component = 'example';
        containerEventHandler.handler = 'callback';
        containerEventHandler.customEventData = 'foobar';

        const container = this.node.getComponent(ToggleContainerComponent);
        container.checkEvents.push(containerEventHandler);
    }

    callback(event: Event, customEventData: string){
        // The event here is a Touch Event object, and you can get the send node of the event by event.target
        // The customEventData parameter here is equal to the "foobar" you set before
    }
}
