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"

Skeletal animations from Widget

Hello there!

I am creating a menu system from a book that when you click the buttons a page will turn to display the new menu (think hearthstone). As an example when I click controls I want a page turning animation to play, which after a delay the widget spawns the text for that page.

The issue I am having is referencing the skeletal mesh and animation to a widget. How do I get them both to talk to each other? I have tried a couple methods, but I just don't know what to do with them.

1) Page turning BP 2) Widget menu 'on clicked..'

It's one year old but if you are still trying : For my main menu, I spawn all from the playercontroller, and all spawned actor/widgets are owned by this playercontroller so they have all the same common actor !

It's been 2 years now since you've asked this and I am looking to create the exact same system with no luck finding a solid answer. If you figured out how to add a skeletal mesh with its animations to the widget please share your knowledge as I haven't got the slightest clue on where to start.
