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"

How does SelectLevelMenu know which level the player selected? Can you show us that code? I don't see why you would need to cast here at all.

You need to provide the object to Cast to SelectLevelMenu. You will need to get a reference to the blueprint you want to cast first, because you're spawning it in that script itself you can simply store the result of Create Select Level Menu Widget as a variable, and provide that to Cast to SelectLevelMenu

However, in this case because it is already a SelectLevelMenu there is no need to cast it.

Think of "Cast" as a way to interpret an object as something else. It's not a way to retrieve an object.

You don't need to cast an object into itself, that's why you're getting the warning, just remove the cast node altogether - you already have a SelectLevelMenu as a result of having just spawned it in the same blueprint and execution chain. If you're getting a crash you should post the crash log in a separate question (it's unrelated).

Ah also, make sure you reply to an answer rather than replying with an answer. It will make it easier for people to help you :)
