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 can I access UMG widget nested inside another widget?

I have a text widget I created that allows me to change the text it displays each time one is created. Now I have a button widget that this text sits on top of, so the text widget is nested within the button widget. I'm adding this button widget to a vertical box (which is currently working). How can I access the text widget within the button widget? When I try to cast it says that the text does not inherit from the button.

After I looked closer I found the names of the objects the parent widget has. If it already has those objects built inside it then you can access them. However if you see a "bind" next to the actual parameter you are trying to access you still have to bind a function using that process. Otherwise you can set the variables from drilling down into it.
