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"

Construction script mouse down input in editor


I am trying to create a greyboxing tool using blueprints. I am trying to set certain parameters in the construction script that depends on whether the mouse button is released from the object but I can't find the right thing to use, I have tried using events in event graph which are called in the construction script but I think they dont work properly because it's not in game mode as well as trying to use the IsKeyDown? function but also that does not work. Is there any way around this so I can detect a mouse release event in blueprints construction script or is this something I will be forced to do in C++?

Not knowing much about your project, I believe what you need can only be achieved by extending the Editor. If you want to go down that road, here is a good video to get your started:
