Banner Integration for Unity

Banner ads usually appear at the top or bottom of your app’s screen. Adding one to your app takes just a few lines of code.


Make sure you only call this once in the lifecycle of your app.

To create a banner in the Unity script file:

  1. Create a banner:

      MoPub.CreateBanner (bannerAdUnit, MoPubAdPosition.BottomRight);
  2. Show or hide the banner (this is optional; the banner is shown by default):

      MoPub.ShowBanner (bannerAdUnit, true);   // shows the banner
      MoPub.ShowBanner (bannerAdUnit, false);  // hides the banner
  3. Destroy the banner:

      MoPub.DestroyBanner (bannerAdUnit);

If your game is distributed on iOS and Android, you only need to import the plugin once, but you must create different ad units for each platform:

    MoPub.CreateBanner("REPLACE_BY_IPHONE_AD_UNIT_ID_HERE", MoPubAdPosition.BottomCenter );
    UNITY_ANDROID MoPub.CreateBanner("REPLACE_BY_ANDROID_AD_UNIT_ID_HERE", MoPubAdPosition.BottomCenter );

The following are the banner-related callback handlers:

OnAdLoadedEvent (string adUnitId, string height)
OnAdFailedEvent (string adUnitId, string errorMsg)
OnAdClickedEvent (string adUnitId)
OnAdExpandedEvent (string adUnitId)
OnAdCollapsedEvent (string adUnitId)

Best Practices

  • Only create a banner ad view when you display it to the user.

  • If the user navigates from a screen with a banner on it to a screen that does not have a banner, destroy or hide the banner.
