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"

is input key down isn't working?

I've been working on a widget in 4.13.0 with controller functionality. you would press any of the Dpad inputs to change the selected button and the bottom face button to select. Recently i had to update to 4.15.1 to accommodate for my partners. Now the "is input key down" node ins't working for me. Has anyone else experienced something like this?alt text

Hello LaceLilium,

I tested this by putting together a barebones project and I'm not seeing any issues with this node in 4.15.1. I set up this widget and created/added it to the viewport on BeginPlay:

Pressing down on the D-pad of an Xbox 360 controller triggered the print. It would sometimes not occur due to this being on tick with a delay but that was rare. Is there any reason you're doing this on tick instead of overriding the OnKeyDown event?

Have you tried debugging your blueprint to ensure that this is where the execution is failing to continue?

I have tried to put some print strings but it wasn't working for some odd reason. But now i saw the problem was in fact the delay. I changed the value by a few points and now i'm relieved to say my menu screen is near completion in this phase. Thank you very much for your help.
