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"

3D Widget Custom Shape


I have been toying with 3D widgets, and there's one thing that is has been nagging me: all of them are flat rectangles. Since widget component is a 3D object, there must be some way to use it as a texture on a custom mesh. How can I do this?

I've looked at a possibility of using render to texture, but I don't think cameras in UE4 have culling masks, so I cannot render ONLY the widget with a given camera, which means that this approach won't work.

So, my question is: how do I use a widget as a texture on a custom mesh?

Thank you.

Try UWidgetComponent::GetUsedMaterials(). Take that material and apply to your meshes
