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"

[UMG] Spinbox unclickable after forced lost focus

System: Windows 10

Engine Version: UE 4.17.2

If the user focus is lost/changed while mouse dragging a UMG spin box the spinbox becomes unusable. (Unable to click/drag with the mouse).

The user focus can be lost (before letting go of the mouse button) in 2 ways:

  • by calling: Set Input Mode.

  • Alt-Tabbing

I managed to reproduce this in a clean 4.17 windows project.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a new project

  2. Create an UMG widget blueprint

  3. Drag a spin box onto the canvas

  4. Save & Compile

  5. In level blueprint add the attached blueprint code. (Create, Add widget, Set input mode)alt text

  6. PIE

  7. Start dragging the spinbox and press Z (or alt-tab out) while still dragging.

  8. Try to edit the spinbox.

Result: The spinbox cannot be edited anymore.

Expected Result: The spinbox should be editable.

I have also attached a clean project reproducing the bug (steps 1-5). Project

Product Version: UE 4.17

edited: I can confirm this happening on 4.18.1 as well. The spinbox is unable to regain focus if it was lost while spinning.

Good catch.
