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"

[Closed] 3D Widget Draw at Desired Size is one way (unticking does nothing)


I have found on a few different projects that on a widget component, the option bDrawAtDesiredSize is a one way tick box. If you tick it, and then untick it, the unticking doesn't do anything, the only way to be able to manually set your size again is delete the widget component entirely and start from scratch

Example for re-creating this:

  1. Create a fresh blank project, Im using 4.16.2 (Launcher Binary)

  2. Create a widget, i deleted the canvas panel and dropped in a progress bar

  3. Create a blank actor blueprint. add the widget component and set the widget class to your widget

  4. Change the draw size, anything you like

  5. Tick Draw at Desired Size (Your widget should change size)

  6. Untick Draw at Desired Size. Now try changing your draw size. It doesn't work, there's no way to fix it besides deleting it and starting again.

Its not a big issue, but its a bit annoying to remake the component if you decide against auto sizing.

Product Version: UE 4.16

Hi Daniel, are you experiencing the same issue when you try to change it through the 'Set Draw Size' node in blueprints?

If you duplicate the widget it will be fixed and its easy that recreating.
