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"

Impossible to (de)activate Widget Component

It's not possible to deactivate UWidgetComponent by default, flag "Auto Activate" is missing on component. Using "Set Active" function on this component doesn't do anything. So the widget component can be always active, there's no other states.

Tested in blueprints.

Fix it, pretty please :)

Mhm... Thanks for suggestion. Although I'm aware of some workarounds, some extra work. But no workaround provides a way to prevent creating widget on actor instances. Currently every instance of every with widget component spawns widget. Even if this instance will never make of this widget!

Control over autoactivating component would be still useful :)
