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"

Hi Shiko777,

You certainly can! In fact, all of the built in UMG widgets are wrappers on slate widgets. For example, if you open up 'Border.h' you'll see that it has a pointer to an 'SBorder' instance, which is the Slate border class.

You can look at any existing UMG widget implementation for an idea of how to write your own. Variables preceded by the UPROPERTY() macro will appear in the details pane. You'll need to override SynchronizeProperties(), which will be called to feed the values back into the underlying Slate widget.
