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"

Add button to UMG Editor

I want to extend editor by adding a button to UMG editor toolbar and File menu.

I've created a blank plugin that already adds a button to LevelEditor toolbar and Window menu, but when I try to move that button to UMG Editor it doesn't appear.

I've already seen several tutorials but they all add a button to LevelEditor module, and I have no idea what am I doing wrong.

I've added "LevelEditor" and "UMGEditor" module to PrivateDependencyModuleNames

Mo code:

MyPlugin.cpp

 #include "LevelEditor.h"
 #include "UMGEditorModule.h"
 
 //...........
 
 void FFutureUISystemModule::StartupModule()
 {
 //.............
 FLevelEditorModule& LevelEditorModule = FModuleManager::LoadModuleChecked<FLevelEditorModule>("LevelEditor");
     IUMGEditorModule& UMGEditorModule = FModuleManager::LoadModuleChecked<IUMGEditorModule>("UMGEditor");
 
 {
 
 TSharedPtr<FExtender> MenuExtender = MakeShareable(new FExtender());
 MenuExtender->AddMenuExtension("FileLoadAndSave", EExtensionHook::After, PluginCommands, FMenuExtensionDelegate::CreateRaw(this, &FFutureUISystemModule::AddMenuExtension));
 
 UMGEditorModule.GetMenuExtensibilityManager()->AddExtender(MenuExtender);
 
 }
 
 {
 
 TSharedPtr<FExtender> MenuExtender = MakeShareable(new FExtender());
 MenuExtender->AddMenuExtension("FileLoadAndSave", EExtensionHook::After, PluginCommands, FMenuExtensionDelegate::CreateRaw(this, &FFutureUISystemModule::AddMenuExtension));
 
 LevelEditorModule.GetMenuExtensibilityManager()->AddExtender(MenuExtender);
 
 }
 }

I can see my button in LevelEditor file menu, but it doesn't appead in UMGEditor file menu. Same thing is happening when I'm trying to extend toolbars.

I guess I'm doing something wrong in this line:

IUMGEditorModule& UMGEditorModule = FModuleManager::LoadModuleChecked("UMGEditor");

but I'm not sure.

Thanks for any help.
