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"

4.6 3d UMG: Crash on Compile

I think this might be the same problem as https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/162505/umg-creating-a-stringtext-variable-crashes.html , but maybe not. Regardless, I have a few more repro steps:

The crashing seemed to be restricted to 1: Arrays and 2: Widgets that are employed as 3d Widgets, as components to another actor placed in the world.

Repo Steps: 1-Create a new UMG Widget class, give it some generic textblock so you can see it in level 2-Create a new Actorsubclass BP, give it a widget component of the custom widget. 3-Place customactor in level 4-save everything 5-In the customwidget, add a new variable, make it an array, compile. 6-Crashy McCrashy!

edit: I tried this without placing the actor in level--same crash...so maybe Step 3 is not necessary.

edit, investigated further: deleting the component from the custom actor allows me to save/compile the widget w/o crashing. That's a cumbersome workaround for someone who might have done a lot of stuff to that component (placement/sizing/settings) but it seems to do the job.

edit edit: for future googlers: a simpler workaround: just change the components BP widget class to a temporary different one to preserve any local changes/settings. Compile the dirty UMG and change the actor's component back and save again. Hooray!
