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 to convert an Int to a Float for use with a UMG Progress Bar?

So in my player character I have an Int variable called PlayerHealth with a value of 100. I want to be able to use this with a UMG Progress Bar. How can I do this in Blueprint? Thanks.

In your UMG, select your ProgressBar and look for Percentage, it should have a binding next to it. Create a new binding. This is what should be in your binding:

So what this basically does is gets the pawn that you're controlling, converts it to whatever your player is (I used the basic ThirdPersonCharacter for this example), gets the Health variable, converts the int to a float (type 'to float' or just make the next node and plug it in and it will do it automatically for you), divides it by a float of 100.0, and then returns a percentage.
