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"

Issue with VR Virtual Keyboard Textbox Focus

We are having issues with a virtual keyboard made with UMG. The keyboard consists of a keyboard widget and a textbox which is in a menu widget. The problem is that the keyboard buttons cannot be pressed until after the user has clicked on the text box. We would like the textbox to be selected immediately when it is spawned.

We built the keyboard by loosely following this tutorial: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/UMG/HowTo/VirtualKeyboards/index.html

Another user, RumbleBall, had the exact same issue in November but never got a response. They described the problem in much better detail. https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?129751-VR-UMG-Interface-set-focus-issue

We have tried setting the focus to the text box or to the keyboard widget using SetUserFocus or SetKeyboardFocus, but these solutions only focus the physical keyboard on the text box and not the widget interaction component.

Product Version: UE 4.15
