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"

First, your widget blueprint need a reference to your actor (where the variable is). the easiest way : when you spawn the widget, you can set the owner of the widget, then in the widget you can use "get owning pawn" ...

Good luck !

Thanks for answer. When I try to set owner and then compile and play, I have this error. Can you show me how to do that? I' ll be very thankful :) alt text

Set the owner with the spawn function, where you choose the blueprint to spawn. There is a owner node under !

Store your variable someplace where you can get access to it. I store them in my GameMode blueprint (I know it might not be the best place). Then bind a blueprint to the text field in your widget.
