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"

Display static meshes/blueprints on a widget?

I'm thinking about an inventory that displays all items in a form of scrollable grid with mesh and text count for each item. When user hovers mouse over an item it starts to rotate. Is it doable using widgets? They could help out with screen bounds and items scrolling

You can do this in two ways:

1 Create flip books for all the objects and play animation with mouse events.

2 Use this tutorial for render 3D object to widget and add any transformation to the object with mouse events

tried 3 rd way: create layout widget with dummy children then 'unproject' their position into 3d and spawn meshes there but didn't work since can't find a way to get widget positions in 2d in the first place
