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"

Weird IsInputKeyDown and UMG behaviour

I'm trying to implement a basic window-drag system, and to do that, detect when the mouse button is down and I'm getting some very strange behaviour:

  • If I double-click (fast) and then hold, then my blueprint (see photo) displays true.

  • If I single-click and hold, then my blueprint displays false.

  • When I double-click-and-hold, I can move my mouse outside of the UE4 game window (standalone game mode).

  • When I single-click-and-hold, my mouse is locked inside the UE4 game window.

  • If I click on a UMG element, IsInputKeyDown always returns false.

I've tried all possible combinations of SetInputModeGameAndUI and the project input settings related to mouse, and nothing helps.

What is going on here? I just want to reliably detect if the mouse is down.
