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"

Access font measurements through BP node

Hi, i'm trying (and failing) to get some font measurements - specifically kerning pairs but i'm just not able to get the thing to compile - any help would be greatly appreciated. The node should just return an INT based on two characters to indicate the space between them - like a ii would be different to a ww.

What i'm actually doing is generating meshes of all the characters of a font, then building lines at runtime a character at a time. It's working quite well but the kerning info is required or it looks a bit rubbish.

I'm trying to get the int from FSlateFontMeasure


     UFUNCTION(BlueprintPure, Category = "DansWonkyPlugins")
         static int32 GetKerningData(FString LChar, FString RChar, FSlateFontInfo InFontData, FSlateFontMeasure CachedFont);


 int32 UMyBlueprintFunctionLibrary::GetKerningData(FString LChar, FString RChar, FSlateFontInfo InFontData, FSlateFontMeasure CachedFont)
     int32 InSize = 100;
     const int32 Scale = 100;
     const TCHAR* First = *LChar;
     const TCHAR* Second = *RChar;
     return CachedFont.GetKerning(InFontData, InSize, First[0], Second[0]);

Thanks very much in advance, AnswerHub squad.
