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"

UMG - Using a 360 Controller

So far I've made a full UI with UMG, on screen display, settings menu, pause menu etc and it works great, aside from the mouse click bug where the game loses focus (already confirmed to being worked on/fixed)

I've noticed that using TAB on the keyboard you can move through buttons.

Is there currently a way to use the D-Pad or thumbstick to toggle between buttons, or set buttons to do the same thing a button would do (Pressing B would do the same as clicking the "Back" button for example)

I'm aware that UMG is experimental, so it could simply be that it's not currently possible which I would understand.

Help would be greatly appreciated.

Not possible at the moment (not enough exposed functions for interpreting the input events), in 4.5 you'll have primitive ability to handle the input manually and do something about it. Eventually we want to do it via data, where you can just pick a widget and set a couple of properties like, when up is pressed goto this widget...etc. We also want to have some kind of auto focus system that can do it automatically just like pressing the tab key, but can use the controller direction as a hint.

Cheers, Nick

Any hint as to when this will work?

We're working on it now, so some portion of it will be in 4.6.

Hey Nick, is there an update or timeline on this? I'm still trying to sort out how to use the d-pad to navigate UMG menus.

Hello SVR33,

You could use the On Key down over ride in combination with the set focus node to allow you to navigate the UMG menu with the D-pad. I hope that this helps.

Make it a great day

Looking forward to it! A QuickShot tutorial would really help.
