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"

Dynamic Slate Elements Through HUD Blueprint

I would like to be able to call a function from the HUD that creates a Slate Element on the HUD. This is to allow the person who is designing the HUD to be able to modify the Slate UI in the HUD Blueprint at Editor runtime. Is this possible? If so, how?

It's not because Slate APIs are outside of UObject environment, so blueprint system don't know how to communicate with it. You would need to create extra layer (classes for UI, functions to control them etc.) in UObject to be able to expose and control slate from blueprint.... and this is exacly what UMG is doing too.

Oh, well that was one of the options I toyed with before. Thought I would ask here first, before getting really far into it. Back to the grind stone. Thank you for the information, Shadowriver.
