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 Detect if Dpad is pressed while a UMG widget has focus

I've tried:

  • Overriding the 'OnKeyDown' function, this works for most keys, but not the Dpad

  • Getting the Player Controller and checking if the Dpad is pressed using "Is key down", again, this works for most keys, not the Dpad

  • Using the 'Dpad is down pressed' event in the character event graph, while having the input mode set to UI and game. Doesn't work, I assume because the UI is handling the Dpad event, so the character never gets a chance to.
