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"

How do I select font and color options for a UMG widget's tool tip text?

In the Behavior tab of a UMG widget, there is a field to enter tool tip text. This text appears when I hover over the UMG object in game. However I can't seem to find where in UE4 to specify the visual style (font, color) of the tool tip rendering. Is this editable in the editor?

Product Version: UE 4.7

I know this is late, but just in case you haven't figured it out or someone else is looking for the solution..

Create a new Widget and name it whatever you like (in this case I created a tool tip for a spell icon/button). Open the widget and create the layout that you would like with all of the formatting that you desire.

Then in the Widget that you are attempting to display the tool tip on when you hover, make sure that the Panel you will be hovering on is a Variable; alt text

The next step is to add the 'On Mouse Enter' event in the Graph tab. Create the tool tip widget, assign it any values it needs (the spell attributes for me), then call 'Set Tool Tip' with the Panel you set as a variable being the 'Target'. As Shown Here; alt text

Hope this helps!
