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"

Opening a Link and Taking a Screenshot in HTML5/Mobile

Hi there,

I'm working on a project right now where I have two buttons in UMG that take a screenshot and open up a link in the web browser.

I take the screenshot by issuing the "Shot" console command. I open the URL using the "Launch URL" node in Blueprint.

The problem is that I want to deploy to both handheld and HTML5 in addition to a desktop packaged app.

So my question is - is there a way to get these commands working in something other than a packaged desktop application?

In the case of a handheld - I'd love to hit the screenshot button and have it save to the device's photo library, or hit the URL button and open up the default launcher.

For HTML5 I'd love for it to open a dialog box for saving an image.

Also in the case of a desktop packaged app, how does one change the default directory where screenshots are saved?

Any suggestions on how to get this to work?

Thanks so much!

Not much information on the mobile screenshot blueprints, but would be great if someone from Epic could confirm the correct method of doing this!
