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"

Widget Interaction - Collision with Actor


I´m using the new Widget Interaction Component to interact with a widget floating in the World. It is working greate. My problem is the collision of the Widget Interaction Component with actors. It is possible for the UMG Widget to be occluded by actors. But it should be possible to point through actors onto the UMG Widget. The Interaction Component is also blocked by invisible actors.

This is my collision setup of the actors that the Widget Interaction Component should not collide with. alt text

https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/UMG/UserGuide/WidgetInteraction/ "The Widget Interaction component performs a Raycast to see if it hits a Widget Component placed in the world..." As of this sentence I would assume only Widgets block the raycast.

Setting "Collision Enabled" to " no collision", the ray is casting trough. But for a feature I need the collision as shown in the picture.
