Questions about creating custom viewport for editor window
I have a couple of questions about using a custom viewport for a new editor window. Im attempting to create a new editor window, to be able to edit a custom asset which should show a collection of actors/widgets in the viewport so that they may be modified/transformed and have their information stored into the custom asset for later use in gameplay code.
So far i havent been able to find any documentation at all when it comes to using a viewport inside of a editor window.
If you know an answer to any these questions much help would be appreciated! or even an extensive tutorial on extending the editor using a new editor window itself would very much help me at this point!
It's quite a huge topic.
About creating a new editor window, you can have a look at the new Plugins wizard; one of the three choices allows you to create a new editor window; that would be a good starting point.
Also, have a look at the Extending the Editor video link text, and use the Widget Reflector in the editor (Window / Developer Tools / Widget Reflector) and the engine source code to see how things are implemented. For example, you could start with the StaticMesh Editor (SStaticMeshEditorViewport.h and SStaticMeshEditorViewport.cpp) to see how it's implemented.
