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"

Variable-driven UMG widget Size

Going Straight to the point. I need to create an Health bar which size depends on the Maximum Health of the player. Dark Souls is a great example of this, the character can have a Stamina Bar Longer than the Health bar if he wishes, by spending points in Stamina. I already made the stats system, i'm now stuck with the health bar problem.

The options for size and such depend on the container panel. I did the same thing you did using a canvas panel. Now, each UMG widget has a Slot which defines its size / location options in its container.

Thus, assuming your health bar is inside a canvas panel, you can drag out of it -> get slot -> cast to canvas panel slot -> set width.

Do this on begin play to initialize it and whenever the player's max health changes.
