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"

No BP Node to set UMG Slider Colors

For our current project we need to set the colors of UMG elements, like buttons, checkboxes, etc. One of these elements of which we need to set the colors are sliders. However, even though there is a GetSliderHandleColor node, there is no aequivalent to set the color.

I have found a BP node to set the style, SetStyle, however, that does not seem to work when I just want to change the color of the slider handle.

Can you confirm this bug? This is quite important for our project, and it works for all the other UMG elements. Any chance you can fix this in the forseeable future? Thanks!

Product Version: UE 4.10

Hello haimat,

I was able to set the color of the Slider bar by setting the image for the "Widget Style Normal Bar Image" and the "Widget Style Normal Thumb Image". I have provided an example below. I hope that this information helps.

Yes, your approach allows to set the image used as the slider handle. However, I don't need to set the image itself, but the color of this handle image. This can easily be achieved directly within the UMG editor by setting the attribute "Slider Handle Color". But the issue is: There is no way to set this color from BP (only to get the color). It seems this SetSliderHandleColor BP node is just missing :(

I have written up a feature request (UE-23755) and I have submitted it to the developers for further consideration. I will provide updates with any pertinent information as it becomes available. Thank you for your time and information.

Make it a great day

Yes, I need this too. i thought it was very strange to omit "Set Slider handle Color" when there is a "Get Slider handle Color" right there.
