Widget to show Text instead of Progress Bar
I have seen how I can put a Widget with a Progress Bar into a Player BP and show health, but what I am looking for is how to display text, such as name, money, alliance, etc.
I know how to cast to a progress bar, but can not seem to find a away to cast to a text.
what you are looking for is not the progress bar. You will need a textfield.
A text field is a different object which you will have to place in the editor view of your widget. There are a couple of different things you can use and place. An image, a textfield, a textblock (in which the player can then input some text), buttons and a few others. All serve only their specific purpose.
I would recommend watching the tutorial series by epic about UMG:
or the tutorial for a very basic menu by Tesla:
Both show off the basics pretty well.
I hope this helps.
