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 do I draw text on the game hud [4.13]

Hey! Im new to unreal and I wanted to draw a text on my game hud. I heard that you can do it with something called DrawText on blueprints but I tried it and it didn't work. So, is there an easier way to draw text on the screen? And how do I do it? Please tell me or link me to a video tutorial on youtube.

Thanks for the answers but I already fixed it! I was using the Event BeginPlay and not Event Receive Draw HUD

If you want a text to appear on the screen, you can create an animation on your HUD. In the HUD designer part, bottom left, you can create animations with a widget on the Hud. The animation can be setting opacity from 0 to 1 over a span of one second.

That is one way. Hope it helps!

Making a UMG User Widget is definitely your best bet.
