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 can I make my SNotificationItem work


I am trying to use SNotificationItem to create a neat little notification in my editor code. I searched some existing editor code and it all seems quite simple, except it doesn't work for me :)

I have ad editor plugin that is going to be doing some heavy work and during that work I want to display the notification similar to what you can see when we compile the code via hot reload.

so here is my slate class

 void SMyDevelopmentHelper::Construct(const FArguments& InArgs)
     ParentWindowPtr = InArgs._ParentWindow;
             SAssignNew(NotificationListPtr, SNotificationList)

I then call a method which is supposed to create a notification

 void FMyDevelopmentHelper::OnDoingSomeHeavyComputation(const TSharedRef< SNotificationList >& InNotificationList)
     FNotificationInfo Info(FText::FromString("A Notification"));
     Info.bUseLargeFont = true;
     Info.bFireAndForget = true;
     Info.bUseSuccessFailIcons = true;
     Info.ExpireDuration = 5.0f;
     Info.FadeInDuration = 2.0f;
     Info.FadeOutDuration = 2.0f;
     TSharedPtr<SNotificationItem> Notification = InNotificationList->AddNotification(Info);
     if (Notification.IsValid())

I am hoping that someone at Epic can tell me what I am missing to get this code to work.

ah nevermind this actually works well, I was just looking in the wrong place, I was expecting this to show in the main window , instead it showed in the widget I had created. Which makes sense ofc. Ah well I am leaving this here so others can maybe see how to use it.
