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"

Is the Create Widget node replaced by a Construct node?

Hi, I'm using a couple of widgets in my game to display and change between the different HUDs. So I've been using the 'Create Widget' node to create and store them at level start. I was trying to link a widget class reference variable to the create widget node today and it got converted to a 'Construct' node. Ever since then, I can only use the Construct node when I try to add Create Widget. Has the Create Widget node been officially replaced by this 'Construct' node?

Create User widget still there, But says construct when nothing attached and create after attached.

Hey Narghile, yea it's been showing 'Create Widget' for me until now. Or atleast I haven't noticed it staying as contruct. But today, I tried connecting a variable that holds a reference to a widget class and it just remained as a construct node. I hadn't tried connecting a class to the node before, so I don't know if it's always been like this.

Ok, Never used a VAR before, just used the drop box.

Mine stays as Construct when I use a VAR as well. But I have been on 4.7.6 for a while now, so must of been like that for a little while would be my guess. Have you done any updates recently?

Cool, I just wanted to make sure that this was part of some recent update and not some freak code incident. I'm using 4.7.6 as well. Thanks for confirming that man.
