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"

Custom Button exposed property on details panel

I'm very new to UE4 so please excuse me if this is a silly question.

I'm attempting to make a custom text-button. I've bound the text to a variable and made the variable editable and available at spawn. In another widget designer I drag the text-button to the screen and see the exposed text property in the details panel. However, when I try to change the value it doesn't update in the viewport.

In context, I'm trying to create a simple word puzzle and want to create a panel showing all available consonants. So I wanted to have each consonant be a text-button. I know I can do this in blueprint on construction but I'd like to be able to visualize it in the editor.

Thanks.

I've also noticed that when I run the game the value of the text I set for the value shows correctly. So my issue is getting the text value change to display in the editor.
