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"

3D Widget Interaction: Button Highlights But Can't Click

Hullo,

I've set up a 3D widget interaction and bound a controller button to "Press Pointer Key" with mouse left button clicking. When I hover over my widget button, it correctly highlights as if selected, but when I press my button, nothing happens! What might be causing this?

Thanks!

Thanks for the answers! Ended up being a stupid mistake on my part in which the pawn was not receiving the input event correctly!

Also had the same Issue. Solved it not with the "Press pointer Key" function. On the Blueprint Component where i added the Widget, i set the "Receive Hardware Input" on the Widget Details to True. alt text

Hope it helps someone

It can be some problem with the Collision Settings on the 3D Widget Component. Try and set it to Block All and see if it works.

It can also be something with the Widgets Visibility Settings inside the Widget. If you for example have a Text on top of your Button, the text should be set to "Hit Test Invisible". If it is set to "Visible" the Hit Test from the Press Point Key may hit the Text instead of the Button. With "Hit Test Invisible" the Text will be Invisible for all interactions an bypass the Hit Test Ray in the 3D Widget Component to the widget next in the hierarchy.

If its not a collision issue as Alltvin suggests I have some questions that might help you track down the problem.

does it work when you use a mouse?

how do you know its not working?

do you have a method bound to the click event?

might be the binding...
