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"

change visibility of a part of a mesh using widget button

Hi, I want to show/hide a StaticMeshComponent using a button in a widget. The issue is that the staticmeshcomponent is inside a blueprint, inside a blueprint himself (referenced as a Child Actor Component).

How can I target this Static Mesh Component ? I've tried cast to nodes but Child Actor can't be used as object in these nodes. I've tried the "set visibility" node but can't target the StaticMeshComponent directly from the widget without casting... Any idea ?

Product Version: UE 4.10

1 answer: sort voted first

Actually I've modified my object to have all static meshes in, instead of a child actor referencing another blueprint grouping all these objects. Lots of static meshes in the blueprint but i'll deal with.
