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"

Hide/Show Widget text in UI


We have a student project going on, and we're making a game with a UI showing spells. We've set up cooldowns that are working (visually and techincally), but we dont want the cooldowns to show all the time. Let me show you a screenshot to help you follow my train of thought.

As you can see I've painted inn a few blue arrows to illustrate where the cooldown timers are. Right now they are always showing, and counting down to zero and resets when a spell is used.

The questions is:

How to make the countdown hidden while its not counting down, and how to enable its visibility when it IS counting down? :)

some extra info: Both the UI and the timers (visually) are made in the same widget UI.
