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"

How are you drawing it currently. Set a bool to not draw crosshair, then in your crosshair draw function call, check to see if that bool is set.

Is the draw function called every frame or,should I use the tick function.one more thing,I have created a bool in character.CPP how can I access that variable in HUD.CPP.

You have to include the hud.h in your character.cpp (or .h). Then you can get from your hudclass the variable.

You can bind the visibility of the crosshair to a UPROPERTY. If you are using Slate i would recommend you to check out how they do it on ShooterGame. Usually you would make your UPROPERTY private and create a public getter UFUNCTION to access it (encapsulation), also, use the meta "BlueprintPure" in order to access that function comfortably from Blueprints (it would make a pure BP accesible function and you will be able to access it on C++ aswell).If you are using UMG, check out this guide about variable (property) binding:


If you have any other further question please do ask it.
