Can I use the mouse instead of the emulation pen to interact with UGUI?

I want to use the mouse to click on the UI, but there will be a problem with the offset, causing the mouse to not interact properly.

Hi there,

The problem you’re encountering is the result of lacking a proper Event Camera for your UI’s Canvas component. zCore’s cameras aren’t publicly exposed in the scene hierarchy, so the best solution currently is to replicate the internal cameras with a public one. It’s a little tricky to do, so see the script below for a demonstration. You’ll have to modify the script slightly. Instead of replicating ZCore.Eye.Left and Right, you should change it to Center. When the script generates the camera on start-up, assign it to your canvas’ public property, Event Camera . This should solve your problem, but let me know if you have any troubles with it.
