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"

Official Tutorial Not Working

I have no idea where to sent this mesage to but oh well.

I just tried this tutorial: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/UMG/QuickStart/5/index.html

But from step 16 of "Adding Experience Bar and Hot Bar Button" things start to not make any sence.

For example, you say "16.Next, Alt drag in the H_UnlockedText variable and enter the text you want to display when unlocking the ability."

Up untill now the tutorial never saied to create a "H_UnlockedText variable".

In step 18 you say : 18.After the Delay, Set H_Experience to 0.0, Set H_UnlockText to Blank and finally set H_Levelup to True."

You say "Set H_UnlockText" in fact that variable is named "H_UnlockedText" from before (never explaned where and how to create it) and even in the picture showing the graph the picture says "H_UnlockedText" not "H_UnlockText".

Acording to the tutorial i should see what the animated picture shows me but instead i see the same thing but the "Super Jump Unlocked!" is visible from when i press play and it never goes out.

Also it seems that not all the colors work in the experience bar, i can never get the color i want (for example light blue).

Hello LoN,

Thank you for the heads up. I have submitted the documentation issue to the development team and it is now under consideration.

Hi LoN,

Thank you for identifying this issue, I have since updated the documentation to include the missing step of creating the "H_UnlockedText" variable as well as Binding it to the Text on the Designer Tab. When the variable is set to blank, it should then update it and not display it, since it is also blank by default, it shouldn't show up until you actually "Set" it.

Regarding your colors, you set a color via step 11 on the page 5. Experience Bar and Hotbar Button? Is it possible to add any images of your setup or a video of what's happening when you play in game?
