How to make a neon effect in a shader?

Cocos

Hello, you may want to change the uv0 settings from the shader code. In the example they show on the manual, they made it so that the effect changes along the x-axis from the uv0.x value. It is important to know that the uv0.x ranges from 0 to 1. So 0 means the far left side of the sprite and 1 represents the far right side of the sprite. Try experimenting this value to get the effect that you want.
