Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Blutility doesn't generate buttons in 4.4

Editor version 4.4.3 official release

I recently noticed the GlobalEditorUtilityBase doesn't generate blutility buttons for custom events or functions, as it did in 4.3.

Editable variables still show up in the window and Event on Default Action Click does work.

Recreation steps:

1)Create blutility from GlobalEditorUtilityBase

2)Create a function

Product Version: Not Selected

Hi dissonanceint,

I just want to verify that we are going about this the same way.

  1. Enable Blutility under Experimental & restart the editor

  2. Create a Blutility bp choosing class GlobalEditorUtilityBase

  3. Double-click to open the bp (NewEditorUtilityBlueprint)

  4. Go to Window > Blutility Shelf

  5. In the Blutility Shelf, right-click the icon > Edit Blueprint

  6. Create a Function

  7. Add a Input & Output, then connect them

  8. Compile & save

  9. Go back to NewEditorUtilityBlueprint

Result: No button or info is listed in the Blutility Details panel

Exactly. Although I originally didn't do the "Add input & output part" (because it wasn't necessary for my function), it doesn't work either way.

Is an input and output necessary?

I found this in the forums so it seems I'm not the only one:

Hi dissonanceint,

I just wanted to make sure that we were using the same steps. The function used on the forum post should work fine.

With that said, this is an experimental feature that can be unstable from build to build. Our devs are aware of the issue and will be working to implement a more stable version of Blutility in the future.

Thanks, TJ
