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"

Manually update mouse cursor graphic after updating PlayerController's CurrentMouseCursor

I've got a situation where upon certain UMG elements being clicked, I need to update the mouse cursor regardless of where it is on the screen. I've got a "master" UMG element that I call SetCursor() on and this works as expected -- the cursor updates immediately while the mouse is inside that widget.

However, when moving the mouse outside of that widget, it goes back to the default cursor.

So, I also set the cursor in the player controller. However, there is no function for this, only a variable: CurrentMouseCursor. The cursor graphic doesn't update every tick of course, so changing this variable means the cursor doesn't actually update until a click event happens.

So I'm looking for a way to manually tell (via the playercontroller or elsewhere) the viewport that it needs to update the cursor graphic. Thank you for any help!
