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"

UMG cant add widget to vertical box

what am i doing wrong i seem to be doing it like ive seen people do elsewhere but it just doesnt work.

heres my viewport which is a widget called menu which has a vertical box wrapped with a border. alt text

here is the bp graph for the menu, i can add a widget normally just fine, but when i add it to the vertical box it just doesnt show...? is it a anchor thing for the button class ( which is upper left by the way) alt text

sorry if this is a total noob question...

oh im trying to spawn these list items procedurally as you pick up items in the game so i cant do it in the umg editor

with the 'AddChild' node are you able to drag off the 'Return Value' pin and cast to a verticl box slot then drag off that and set a 'SetHorizontalAlignment" and "SetVerticleAlingment" nodes. if you can, try setting them to 'Fill'?

I would watch the following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6f6ejXeqyko

He does a really good job of explaining how to add items to a vertical box.

those two settings didnt do anything, but 'Set Size' to value =1 and SizeRule to Fill totally works. tho now it has a built in padding i cant change, it just spaces them based on the number of them in the list, so 2 widgets take up 50% each of the vertical box.

it seems like they changed a lot since the experimental version a month or two ago... all the tuts ive seen dont do this cast slot thing.

thx tho Chooka. :)

another thought, in your widget do you have the button wrapped by a canvas? try it without the canvas and see what that does.

That's exactly what the video I posted shows to do ^_^

i was meaning the "CustomButtonWidget' he was using not the widget holding the verticle box
