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"

Color Picker Issues on 4.11.2 Widget Blueprint

I have seen this posted for 4.7 but not 4.11 and I this is not the same exact issue. In most cases the Color Picker operates as it should but I have a Widget with a Linear Color Variable and also a Slate Color Variable in it and when I adjust any value it will close just as I release the mouse button.

I also have a couple other Widgets that have Linear and Slate Color Variables that seem unresponsive as I adjust the values, the picker circle does not move with the mouse and the sliders do not move with the mouse. Again, these to close when you release the mouse button.

Just as added Information, This does not do this on all widget blueprints, some slate colors work fine, some linear colors work fine, and sometimes both work fine.... I created 3 new widget blueprints and all three acted different.

This is a Binary build from the launcher and is version 4.11.2-2946394

EDIT: I found that this happens only if you select the variable in the variables list, if you select the variable node in the blueprint then it will function properly.

Product Version: UE 4.11

Hello Overwatch04,

I have a few questions for you that will help narrow down what issue it is that you are experiencing.

Quick questions:

  1. Can you reproduce this issue in a clean project?

  2. If so, could you provide a detailed list of steps to reproduce this issue on our end?

  3. Could you provide screen shots of any blueprints that may be involved with this issue?

Thanks for the quick response Rudy!

  1. I created a new project, First Person (Blueprint of coarse) for Desktop/Console.

  2. I created a folder called UMG in the Content folder.

  3. Created a Widget Blueprint called TestWidget

  4. Created a Slate Color Variable

  5. Created a Linear Color Variable

  6. Clicked the Slate Color Variable and in the details panel under Default Value I click the color bar. The color picker opens, I hold the left mouse button to change the color and when I release the left mouse button it grabs the color that the cursor was on and automatically closes out the color picker. This happens on any color adjustment in the picker including advanced sliders.

  7. Clicked the Linear Color Variable -this one seems to work fine on this test

  8. Drug out both variables to the blueprint (get) and click on either one, the color picker functions correctly from here.
