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 spawn a primitive button in Blueprints

To my knowledge, the only way to spawn a button in Blueprints is to first create a widget MyButton, and call Create Widget from it.

What if I only want to spawn the most basic button (i.e. the primitive button accessible in the Designer panel) and don't want to create a dummy widget, how can I accomplish this?

If this is impossible, what were the reasons behind not allowing this?

It is not possible to spawn primitive widgets using the "Create Widget" Node.

Reason: Primitive Widgets are not User Widgets. Create Widget only accepts User Widget classes.

As you already know, if you want the use of Primitive Widgets in a "Create Widget" Node, you would need to create a User Widget containing it.

Primitive Widgets extend from a Slate Object, just like User Widgets do.
