EditorInspectorPlugin

Inherits: RefCounted < Object

Plugin for adding custom property editors on inspector.

Description

EditorInspectorPlugin allows adding custom property editors to EditorInspector.

When an object is edited, the _can_handle function is called and must return true if the object type is supported.

If supported, the function _parse_begin will be called, allowing to place custom controls at the beginning of the class.

Subsequently, the _parse_category and _parse_property are called for every category and property. They offer the ability to add custom controls to the inspector too.

Finally, _parse_end will be called.

On each of these calls, the "add" functions can be called.

To use EditorInspectorPlugin, register it using the EditorPlugin.add_inspector_plugin method first.
