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"

WidgetInteraction TextBox


I am trying to make a umg world placed widget with a text box that has to be edited by receiving keyboard inputs. I followed the tutorial in the ue4 documentation (https://docs.unrealengine.com/…/H…/InWorldWidgetInteraction/).

Find a video in the following link with the process so anybody can check if I did something wrong. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIHN9QmiyYQ&feature=youtu.be).

I also added a button to the widget for testing, and the button works well, but the text box is not receiving inputs other than special keys (numeric pad and weird symbol keys. With the numeric pad I can type letters, which is also weird, by the way). Later on I noticed that if I double right click on the text box then it starts working until I left click in any other widget.

This was working for me before the addition of the WidgetInteraction component in the 4.13.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

I have a similar issue in VR on 4.18, i can't seem to send keystrokes to the textbox unless i click it explicitly. Calling any of the focus nodes does not work or locks the input, so i can't even click my vr-buttons in the world.
