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"

How would I create player controlled moveable tags on the HUD?

I am attempting to create moveable tags (sort of like 4 buttons) that permanently sit on the HUD and are interactive by the person playing the game. For example -- say you have 4 cars in the game, and each tag on screen represents one of those 4 cars, and is stacked on top of each other. The top 2 tags show the status of 'driving', the tag below it says "towing", and the 4th tag says "parked". How would I create something that stacks these tags, but if the user needed to move the "parked" tag to the top of the list by clicking and dragging it while the other 3 tags shifted down? I don't think UE4 widgets possess this power 'yet', so I assume there must be something else that can generate this functionality. I clipped an image to this post to illustrate my attempts. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks everyone!alt text

Hm, i don't know how to do this with UMG, but i have made Drag&Drop with the normal HUD.

I wrote a small sumup in this questions:


It's the long post. It's basicly working with Hitboxes and arrays that store the current position of one of those elements, as well as the overall positions of those 4 tags. Than it's just a bit of index shifting. Maybe that helps you + reading my comment in the other answer.

Thanks eXi. The link you provided will give me something to play around with and see what I can get to work. I appreciate the quick response!
