How to get Labels for Objects in unity


I am trying to attach labels to objects with a line coming from objects to label.....
Attached few samples for reference....

The labels are not clear sorry about that...The second file is clear for reference
I am actually designing a game that needs this type of labelling.
Is there a way so that I can do that thing out....Please help me out.


  • This is a game design issue, not Hololens. Please refer to Unity forum.

  • Unity UI will be helpful for the info cards. You will need a Canvas that uses World coordinates, and then each of those little cards would be a Panel with some child text. You can use a Unity LineRenderer to do the line between the card and the point of interest.

    Some things you'll want to research:

    1. You'll want to read up on how to Get Unity UI running on HoloLens.

    2. I suggest you take a look at a great little project called Unity UI Extensions. It lets you do some really neat things in Unity UI that aren't possible out of the box. You won't need it for the card scenario above but it's worth bookmarking somewhere for future projects.

    Best of luck with your project!

  • Hi jbienzms,
    Thanks a lot for your help.So, I need to use Unity UI. I'll surely take a look on "Unity UI Extensions" project.

    Thanks for your best wishes!

  • Hi,

    I am trying to attach labels to one of my 3D models.So, what I did is I took Line Renderer as a component for this model but when I am trying to attach a text for labelling that part I am unable to connect this line with the text..Please tell me where I am going wrong.

  • Can u share the code @Afreen_Firdous26
