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"

[4.7] UMG Get position on widget

Hi everyone,

So what I'm doing is dynamically creating widgets for my party members. Is there a way to get an existing(parent) widget variable and find it's current position within the viewport so I can add other widgets(child) based off of the parent's widget?

If I have to, I can do it based off of the current party member's index and do it that way, but I would think the above would be easier to work with. But I could be wrong in that manner and if both of them exist, then the performance of one vs the other.

Thanks for your help!

You can get the position of a widget by doing this : alt text

It will get you the offsets compared to the anchors : alt text

I hope it helps !

You'll also have to deal with the screen size, scale and anchor offsets... (note that this only works with canvas slots)

Any way to do this with horizontal box slots?
