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"

How to change material parameters on widget component

I'm trying to change material parameters on a UI material that is assigned to an image inside a widget (this I managed to make it work). What's not working is the ability to change the parameters of that material on a widget component inside the player character blueprint. This widget component is referencing the class of the widget that has the material on the image but no changes are visible when I change the parameters of the widget material.

To summarize, I have:

Material with scalar parameters I want to change dynamicly

Widget A with the material assigned to an image

Widget Component B inside player blueprint referencing Widget A

Product Version: UE 4.21

I figured it out. Instead of making the logic on the player character, I made it on the widget itself and it reflects on the widget component inside the player BP. Although it'd be better to control the material on the player BP, or on other actors with a widget component.
