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: GetKey missing in OnAnalogValueChanged

Hi Epic Team,

I'd like to report what seems to me like an issue, but might also be some design decision I wasn't able to look through yet.

I have a UMG widget which is controllable by gamepad. For this, I need the OnAnalogValueChanged function. I used the GetKey node as well (which I dragged out of the InAnalogInputEvent) to check which analog stick was used.

When I created the widget, I worked on 4.8. Since I switched to 4.9, however, the GetKey node is gone. This is a problem, as I have no idea how to check on the used analog stick now and the widget is part of a marketplace submission which has already been scheduled for release by your team.

Could you help me out here with some information? Is this a bug, or maybe the GetKey node can be found somewhere else now?

You can easily reproduce my issue by creating a new widget in any blank project and comparing the OnAnalogValueChanged functions of 4.8 and 4.9.

Thanks in advance!

Cheers, Jonas

Thanks, Rudy!

Do you, by any chance, have a workaround for me? On how to get the information which analog stick is pressed at the moment?

Hello Artax,

You could use the On Key Down override to find out with analog stick is being used. You could then use the value that is given in the On analog value changed to do what you need in the on key down override.
