Working with UI Slices

This topic references tools and features that are legacy. If you want to use legacy tools in Lumberyard Editor, disable the CryEntity Removal gem using the Project Configurator or the command line. To learn more about legacy features, see the Amazon Lumberyard Legacy Reference.

The UI system uses the slices technology, which is a cascaded data management system for entities. This slice technology is similar to what the main Lumberyard Editor uses, but the user interface and some of the requirements are slightly different for the UI system. For more information about component entity system slices, see Working with Slices.

UI slices replace UI prefabs. The UI prefab functionality is still available and functional, but its menu items are marked as deprecated and will be removed in a future release.
