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 - Conflicting with virtual joystick

So here's the deal. I have a HUD made with UMG, I've figured out that UMG is the cause my visual joystick doesn't appear. How do I solve this?

Basically when I press the pause button on my screen, that is part of my UMG HUD, the virtual joystick disappears, same when I press resume.

(also tested on version 4.10.0, same thing)

Product Version: UE 4.9

I have the same problem, can't check my code right now but just to keep this post up to date for others that are searching for the same here's the answer that solved this case as answered by eXi:

Hm ok, i would say you get rid of the "Remove All Widgets". Because it may also kill the Joystick. To remove a specific widget, call "Remove from Parent" on it.

Also i would recommend spawning the Widgets in a Class that you can always access (For example GameState, PlayerState, PlayerController, etc.) and save the return value as a reference. Then you can remove them if you want to open the menu.

But first, try to remove "Remove All Widgets" and check if the Joystick thing survives.
