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"

UMG Button and button logic in C++


I apologize in advance if my explanation is confusing.

I'm trying to separate the visuals from the logic in UMG, a bit like MVC and MVVM design, but I can't seem to be able to access buttons in C++. Here is pseudocode-ish

UClass() class XYZ : public UUserWidget { ....

    UPROPERTY(BlueprintReadWrite, Category = "Something")
    Button MyButton;
    FButtonStyle AButtonStyle;
    void SetHoveredButtonStyle() 
       MyButtonStyle->WidgetStyle = AButtonStyle;

So, in the end, the artist would just attach this base class to his widget, set the MyButton to his created button in the constructor script, and the logic in C++ would handle everything except the styling and layout.

Any idea on how I can do this? I cannot find any class that I can compile AND give access to blueprint for the button If you can explain to me a bit on how Button Styles work (how I can define them and how I can use them correctly) I would also be very appreciated but my biggest issue is the compiling problem :(
