Animator Extension: How to use advanced reflection step by step


This article shows how to use reflection to Open the Animator, Animation Window, and to Auto play the default animation of a gameObject, from the scene view.

This method does not require additionnal script on gameObject. It automaticly opens when you select a gameObject which contain an Animator !

I will try to show you how to use reflection step by step, with this exemple.

Demonstration

Here you see how easy it is to visualize an animation from the scene view.




How to Use


Simply Put these scripts inside an Editor/ Folder, and that's it !

How it works

If you are interested about how to do the custom editor which display the Tiny EditorWindow in the scene view, go check this devlog
If you are really curious about reflection, you can download the C# source code of Unity at their official github. From here you can open it in visual studio, and start to dig in.



Let's recapitulate the goal: Open the Animation and the Animator Window, then find and execute the "play" button of the Animation window.

Open an EditorWindow

The function
OpenEditorWindow()
will return an EditorWindow with a given name in parametter. It also returns the type, for convenience. With the code bellow, you get, and Open the EditorWinwow called
AnimationWindow
.


//open animation window
System.Type animationWindowType = null;
EditorWindow animationWindowEditor = OpenEditorWindow(AllNameAssemblyKnown.AnimationWindow, ref animationWindowType);


But wait, How did you know that the Animation Window was called "AnimationWindow" ?





Search AnimationWindow.cs script in the Unity source code

You can then search in the unity code to find the script associated:
In Visual studio with the UnityCsReference project open, Press CTRL+T and search for AnimationWindow.




Get a FieldInfo from a given System.Type

From the previous research in the Unity code, you can see this interesting line:
private AnimEditor m_AnimEditor;

Using reflection, you can get this variable as a FieldInfo.

Use
GetField()
to get the
m_AnimEditor
FieldInfo:
//Get field m_AnimEditor
FieldInfo animEditorFI = animationWindowType.GetField('m_AnimEditor', ExtReflectionion.GetFullBinding());

the function
GetFullBinding()
here is a little bit overkill. If you want to optimize, you could simply change it by
BindingFlags.NonPublic
(because m_AnimEditor is a private field)


But Wait again, How did you know that
m_AnimEditor
was the
FieldInfo
you were looking for ?





Get a PropertyInfo from a given FieldInfo

Press F12 on the variable AnimEditor
m_AnimEditor
to open the script in visual studio. Then, you can find the public
controlInterface
Propertie, which leads to the
IAnimationWindowControl.cs
script, with finaly, some interesting variables and functions !
Use
GetProperty()
to get the
controlInterface
PropertyInfo of the FieldInfo
animEditorFI.FieldType
Use
GetProperty()
to get the
playing
PropertyInfo of the PropertyInfo
controlInterfacePI.PropertyType
//Get the propertue of animEditorFI
PropertyInfo controlInterfacePI = animEditorFI.FieldType.GetProperty('controlInterface', ExtReflectionion.GetFullBinding());

//Get property i splaying or not
PropertyInfo isPlaying = controlInterfacePI.PropertyType.GetProperty('playing', ExtReflectionion.GetFullBinding());





Get the value of a PropertyInfo

It is not over yet ! with a PropertyInfo playing, you have to cast it into a boolean to test if the animation is playing or not:

//get object controlInterface
object controlInterface = controlInterfacePI.GetValue(animEditorFI.GetValue(animationWindowEditor));
//get the state of the 'play' button
bool playing = (bool)isPlaying.GetValue(controlInterface);
It is a complex process, it uses the previously found variables
controlInterfacePI
,
animEditorFI
and
animationWindowEditor
to get the value of
playing
:
public abstract bool playing { get; }





Call a method using MethodInfo

Finally ! you can test the boolean play, and call the right function. Here is how to call a function using MethodInfo:

MethodInfo playMI = controlInterfacePI.PropertyType.GetMethod('StartPlayback', ExtReflectionion.GetFullBinding());
playMI.Invoke(controlInterface, new object[0]);

That line will call the function:
public abstract bool StartPlayback();





And this is it ! A lot of code and thinging process for a little result ! It is the joy of reflection. I Hope I was clear about everything, if not, well, contact me anytime :).
