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"

Is there any reason to use UMG for a pure C++ UI implementation instead of using Slate directly?

Do I understand correctly that UMG is just a Blueprint-focused wrapper over Slate, and it may be easier to go with straight Slate if I am much more comfortable using C++ than Blueprints?

Product Version: UE 4.19

No. UMG adds a ton of unnecessary overhead just for the sake of having a WYSIWYG editor. If you can, relatively fast, write Slate UIs in C++ then there's pretty much zero reasons to go and use UMG.

The only reason to use UMG instead of slate is that UMG allows in editor Edit. If you can use slate - then it would be a better choice performance wise. Also UMG is limited and very annoying :-)
