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"

3D Widget Not Responding to Interaction

Hi all,

I'm trying to add an inventory to my game that floats in front of my player that they can interact with. To my player character I added a 3D widget, which I positioned in front of my character. I also added a widget interaction component. The widget has a button on it connected to a print string. In my character blueprint I set it up so on left mouse button press it calls 'Press Pointer Key' (Left Mouse Button) on the widget interaction component and the same for release(but with 'Release Pointer Key'). However, when I look at my button and click nothing happens.

I have confirmed that my widget is being detected by the interaction component by making my character print the result of 'Get Hovered Widget Component' and it prints BP_Character.inventorywidgetcomponent so I assume it is detecting the widget fine.

What could I be doing wrong?

I know this is old but I just ran into the same issue. It's not enough to set the 3D widget as tickable on paused. You also have to grab the widget component and set it tickable when paused. Actors and or actor components don't appear to inherit a parents tickable state.alt text
