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"

Slate UI TextBlock, Text_Lambda to update the Text?

I have a Slate widget that I create like this:

   void SetUpWidget()
         FText SlateHUDText = FText::FromString("This is the first text");
         FLevelEditorModule& LevelEditor = FModuleManager::GetModuleChecked<FLevelEditorModule>(TEXT("LevelEditor"));
         TSharedPtr<ILevelViewport> LViewport = LevelEditor.GetFirstActiveViewport();
         TSharedRef<SWidget> NewWidget = SNew(SOverlay)
             + SOverlay::Slot()
             .Font(FSlateFontInfo("Veranda", 16))
             //.Text_Lambda() // HOW TO?

I have another function that updates a string variable on Tick. What I would like to do is BIND the string variable to the TSharedRef TextBlock, so that it updates every time the variable does. Is this done with the Text_Lambda attribute? Or is there another way?

Ah, solved it.


 FString displayStr = "this string";

//from above code

 .Text_Lambda([this]()->FText {return FText::FromString(displayStr); })

Lamda is new C++ feature from C++11 so not all C++ tutorials teach that https://en.cppreference.com/w/cpp/language/lambda
