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"

[4.17.2] Binding functions to "Tool Tip Widget" fails.

I tried to bind a function to the variable "Tool Tip Widget" while designing my main menu.

I found the bound function was never called, as the breakpoint I placed within the function was never hit.

I bound a function to "Tool Tip Text" instead and was successfully able to create a tool tip widget via the "Set Tool Tip" Node. But it seems rather un-intuitive and confusing, is this behavior intended?

It's working as intended, you're supposed to bind a custom widget there.

Then what is "Tool Tip Widget" for?

It is an automated way to display tooltips. The tooltip is a whole another widget rather than just a piece of text. This way you can bind a custom widget with fancy features and not worry about spawning / referencing / adding to viewport / positioning / despawning / triggering animations and so on. It's done automatically.
