    This didn't get fixed in Unity 5.6.0f3, I'm using 2017.3.1f1 and it's still happening!

    No, this is not fixed. This is still happening in June 2018...

    this is still an open issue, why it says fixed?
    should we create a new bug report?

    Read this hack on the forum (short and sweet) :

    button.enabled = false;
    button.enabled = true;

    Who knows what side effects this may have, but it works without a huge workaround.

    Another way would be to create a new class that inherits from Button and override the OnSelect() method as such:

    public override void OnSelect (BaseEventData eventData)
    print ( + " selected!");

    ...though I don't know if I'm eliminating any crucial behaviours. It does still call the method on attached to my onClick event.

    Using 2017.1.1f1 Personal and this is still happening. Granted, I'm new to programming but this seems incredibly odd as a default behaviour. There seems to be some workarounds, but apparently this hasn't actually been addressed despite the big green bar at the top of this page that says "Fixed in Unity 5.6.0".

    "Mission Accomplished" guys?

    Not fixed in Unity 5.6.1f1 Personal 64bit as of 11/06/2017.

    I agree with THEWANDERINGBEN's comment above - this is a common problem that occurs in multiple beginner tutorials such as the TicTacToe UI tutorial. Beginners are likely to have significantly difficulty implementing a work-around.

    This bug isn't solved. It still occurs in Unity 5.6.0f3 (64-bit).
