Issue ID




Inspector displays incorrect type size alignment when inspecting Components

Package: Entity Component System (ECS)


Reproduction steps:
1. Open the attached project ""
2. Open the Components window (Window -> DOTS -> Components)
3. Find and select "New Component" in the Components window
4. Observe the value of "Alignment" in the Inspector

Expected result: the value of "Alignment" is 1 B
Actual result: the value of "Alignment" is 16 B

Reproducible with: 0.50.1-preview.2 (2020.3.35f1)

- The project contains a script "Example.cs" that calls "UnsafeUtility.AlignOf<T>()" which displays the correct alignment
- While testing with byte variables, it was found that defining an odd number (excluding 1) of byte variables shows the alignment as 16 B, an even number (up to 8) shows as many bytes as there are variables defined, more than 8 shows 16 B and 1 shows as 1 B

  1. Resolution Note (fix version 1.0.X - Entities):

    This issue is fixed by renaming the field to "Component Alignment in Chunk", which reflects the proper field content.
