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"

Possible to use event to trigger text change in HUD?

Hey guys, I'm trying to change the text in my HUD after activating an object in game.

In essence, it's like when you walk up to an NPC in an RPG and a text box pops up.

Ofcorse, What you looking for is visibility but you can change thex too, each widget has set function to change widget appearance. Slate and UMG as effect allows you to bind appearance properties to function and varable, so widget will update automatically based on state of varbale or return of a function you binded without you needing to do any events. It's performance free (specially varable) as widget checks properties on every frame anyway.
