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"

Confused about context menus

I´ve been searching for a while and couldnt find an answer on how UE4 handles out of context menus, i understand that ther is a default HUD class that you can just add stuff in ther and it will always render on top of evrything but, how should one go about displaying a menu for a shop for exemple??

Imagine thers a map thats has the sole porpouse of being a shop and when the player enters said map a custom UI appears, handeling that kind of logic in the HUD class makes no sense.

The answer probably has something to do with widgets but i couldnt find a decnet explanation on that either.

So if any 1 could spare the time to explain to me the concept of widgets and how to do a "shop menu" i would be very thank full.

In that situation I would just have the map begin play event trigger the openiing of the UI.
