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"

How to make a UMG text box writable in game.

UE4 4.12.5

I can't seem to find how to make a text box writable if it's been set to read only in the Designer. In the event graph I can get "Is Read Only" but it doesn't look like I can set "Is Read Only".

By default I want it to be read only.
If certain conditions are met in-game, then I want to disable Read Only (make it writable) temporarily.

Should I use "Is Enabled" instead to achieve what I'm after?

Thanks for any help.

Sorry.

Setting the text box's Visibility to "Hit Test Invisible" when I want it read only, and then Visible to make it writable achieved the effect I was after.

Only problem with this approach is you can't copy the text in the text box.
