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 do i make buttons in hud widget hit test invisible temporarily in bp?

hey guys, i have this issue so i need my buttons to be hit test visible so i can click on them at the start, but then afterwards i want to disable them because they are interfering with my line trace that follows my mouse cursor


its causing some weird bug where my building skips the building proxy stage entirely and just spawns a collisionless mesh of itself?

is there a way to disable the hit test of all my Hud widgets buttons when i am in ''building placement mode'' and then re-enable them again after????

oddly enough its only the scroll box buttons causing me this headache, every other button doesn't seem to effect it??

so any other ways to fix this, im all ears

You just need to define a variable, like "isbuilding" when the player is building and then set it off after that action has finished. From that you can reference whatever widget you desire and use set visibility. All you really need is a reference tree, ie you reference your main widget, which has a reference to whatever widget the buttons include.
