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"

Creating custom editor windows/tools?

After searching for a little while, I haven't managed to find good resources that explain how I could go about creating custom windows and tools for UE4.

Here's an example of the kind of "custom tool" I'd like to create: A window that allows game designers to create and save labyrinths. The window would contain a grid of slots, and the designers would be able to assign a room blueprint to the desired slots. Once they're happy with their labyrinth design, there would be a "Save" button that would generate the new labyrinth blueprint (composed of all the assigned rooms) and save it in the content folder.

In short, I'm looking for guidance on how to create a new editor window in which I have some kind of control over the UI. Any tips?

You should look at this video, Michael explain almost all the basic stuff about extending the Editor and where to look in the code itself to see exemple of it.
