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"

PrintString/Text called from UMG event in PIE reporting Client -2

Issue: Normally calling a PrintString node from a client window when in PIE will display "Client N: [string]" Where N is the client window number. However i've found that if you call PrintString from within a widget event it will always say "Client -2: [string]" (client negative two) no matter what client window it's run on.

To replicate

  • make a widget with a button

  • add event on button click that calls node PrintString "hello from widget event"

  • add CreateWidget and AddToViewPort nodes to display widget from level blueprint's OnBeginPlay, also call PrintString "hello from blueprint" from the level blueprint

  • run multiple client windows in PIE

  • click button from any client window.

You should see this in the console after clicking the button..
