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 get the position of my widget on the parent canvas?

Hello, i can easily set the position of my widget on the canvas by converting it to Canvas Slot and using set position, but i can't get the value later on, because there is no Get Position node. Do i need to keep track of the position myself? Thank you.

Use Get Content Slot node

https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/API/Runtime/UMG/Components/UContentWidget/GetContentSlot/index.html

Cast it to Canvas Panel Slot and then you gain access to those controls

It's this over-complex because Slate is designed in the way, where widget container position the widget, not the widget it self
