3D Button
We recommend using a 3D Press Button in place of the 3D Button, as the 3D Button widget will be deprecated in a future release. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
In May, the 3D Button widget will no longer available for new projects. This will not immediately affect existing projects that contain 3D Button widgets, and you will still be able to edit and re-publish projects that contain them.
Then, at a later date (TBD), all existing 3D Buttons will be transitioned to 3D Press Buttons. More information on this transition will be forthcoming.
What Does This Widget Do?
The 3D Button widget allows you to utilize fully articulated hand tracking on a HoloLens 2. You can also Gaze and Air tap a 3D Button if using a HoloLens.
When Should I Use This Widget?
A 3D button is particularly useful when creating an Experience that will be viewed on a HoloLens 2 and you want to utilize articulated hand tracking. However, the 3D Button can be used for any user actions similar to the 3D Label and 3D Image widgets.
