DrawDefaultInspector() displays enums differently from EditorGUILayout.EnumPopup when using Custom Inspector




Priority: 7Not yet prioritized for a release


Severity: 4Minor or cosmetic issue

How to reproduce:
1. Open attached project "case_1115381-DrawDefaultInspectorEnumPopup_1" and scene "EnumTest"
2. Select the "EnumTest" GameObject from the Hierarchy window to see its Inspector window
3. Observe Inspector window

Expected result: the top enum dropdown shows the associated Enum's Description attributes (like the one below it)
Actual result: the top enum dropdown shows the associated Enum's entries directly

Reproducible with: 2018.3.2f1, 2019.1.0a14, 2019.2.0a1
Not reproducible with: 2017.4.18f1 and older (EnumPopup did not use Description attribute)

Resolution Note:

Usage of System.ComponentModel.DescriptionAttribute in the EnumPopup has been replaced by a new attribute UnityEngine.InspectorNameAttribute. This attribute will be used in both EnumPopup dropdown and the default property drawer for enums to change the displayed name.
