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 make a sliding news-ticker in BP?


I'm trying to make a news-ticker with dynamic text but I really can't figure out a good way to do it. alt text I want the text to scroll right to left, only visible when it's over the LED-screen. The problem is making the text appear and disappear. I could try spawning each character by itself and move it to the left, but I don't want the whole letters to disappear and reappear at once, it has to be gradual like a real news ticker. If the text wasn't dynamic I could've made a texture with it and used that somehow, but it has to be dynamic.

Any ideas will be really helpful!

you could put the text widget inside a canvas widget, which will crop off anything that extends beyond its border. then as a canvas slot, you can set its position on tick to make it scroll.

Thank you very much! This is exactly what I wanted. At first I thought something was broken when the widget wasn't shown in my actor blueprint, but it was just the draw size on the widget not being big enough.
