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"

Storing Array in Widget Blueprint Problem


I am Creating a Inventory and Everything was going well but i have encountered this problem.... Whenever i pickup my item i give a call to my Inventory Widget Blueprint To Send the info over to it. now After the widget blueprint receives the info it adds the item info to a Inventory Items Array. however it keeps adding it to Index 0 for some reason or i think it doesnt even add it (i will check if it does.). However the Item info IS being received since i have tried picking up two different items with different names ofcourse and and Printed the string and its doing it correctly however the index stays at zero when i print it.

[BTW i do know it wont show us that it added it in the Default Value. im Just Printing the index after adding and the index stays at zero after adding two values in the same game session]

Here's what im doing to add items. alt text

Widgets may not be perfect for storing data, they are made for showing data not for storing and for inventory best place to store items is in actor component dedicated to inventory codes

Alright I guess. As for Actor component I'll just store the inventory items array in my Player BP and save them :)
