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"

accessing umg blueprint from character blueprint.

hey everyone, so i created and inventory in a widget blueprint. all i want to do is that, on the press of the I key, it switches from visible to hidden. now i can't do that on the widget blueprint itself, so i want to do it inside the character blueprint from the third person template. I followed the instructions on the Blueprint Comms document page: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Blueprints/UserGuide/BlueprintComms/index.html

but i get stuck on the part where they set the default.

so here's what i did. my widget blueprint is called MainHUD. i created a variable in the character blueprint which is the object reference of MainHUD. i created a tooltip and made it public. now when i go to the defaults tab and try to set a value for that variable, nothing shows in the little box that pops up.

i have searched everywhere for help and decided to ask here. so if anyone has a solution, that'd be great. i figure i've given enough information, but if you need more, don't be shy to ask.

and sorry for sounding so n00by, but i just started with unreal engine, so yeah.

anyway, thanks to anyone who helps.
