Error: Unity Does Not Implement Interface Member Error

What's Causing This Error

The error 'Unity does not implement interface member' typically occurs when a class in Unity C# is declared to implement an interface but doesn't actually provide an implementation for all of the interface's members.

An interface in programming is a contract that sets up certain functionalities which implementing classes must contain. When you declare that a class implements an interface, you're telling the compiler that your class agrees to adhere to that contract - meaning it will provide implementations for all the methods and properties specified in the interface.

If you omit some of these methods or properties, or if you have spelled them incorrectly (C# is case-sensitive), or if the signatures (return type, method name, parameters) don't exactly match, then the compiler will throw this error.

Solution - Here's How To Resolve It

To fix the 'Unity does not implement interface member' error, follow these steps:

  1. Check the interface declaration: Make sure your class correctly declares that it intends to implement the interface.

  2. Inspect each member: Review the interface definition and make sure your class provides an implementation for each method and property.

  3. Ensure matching signatures: The implemented members in your class should have the same return type, name, and parameters as those in the interface. Remember that C# is case sensitive, so even a difference in capitalization can cause this error.

  4. Use explicit implementation: If there are issues with naming conflicts or visibility, consider using explicit implementation. This means fully qualifying the interface members in the class with the name of the interface.

  5. Use IDE features: Most modern IDEs, like Visual Studio, provide features that can automatically implement the interface members for you. This can help avoid typing mistakes.

Remember to compile and test your code after each change to see if the error has been resolved.
