Screen.width and Screen.height values in "OnEnable" function are incorrect



When Screen.width or Screen.height are called in an "OnEnable" call in the editor and the component is enabled (i.e. by checking the 'enabled' box), the Screen.width and Screen.height that are reported are from the 'inspector' panel's size and not the game's view size.

Reproduced with:
Unity Version 4.3.2f1 (0517a5ae8669)
Unity Version 4.3.4f1 (e444f76e01cd)

    The more recent bug report is here:

    It has been closed as By design without explanation, so I re-opened a bug report and will post my updates on the more recent bug report until a new one is opened, or it is reopened.

    I just saw this today on 2019.4.3f1. Gives me the inspector sizes when toggling the enable on and off and reading screen in the OnEnable function.

    The values are correct the very first time. After the game is running and toggling the enable in the editor the values return the inspector sizes.

    I can admit that Screen.width has incorrect values in OnValidate, even when OnValidate is called during play mode.
    Unity 2019.3.6f1 (Windows)

    This is my code:

    private void AdjustZoom()
    Debug.Log(Screen.height + ", " + Screen.width);

    The function is called in OnValidate and it's Logging the height/width of the inspector window and not the game window (as it probably is intended!). When playing it's logging the game window height/width.

    Reproducible in Unity 2019.2.0f1!
    This thread is not resolved!
