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 make an inventory hud that is infinite?

So, I've created an inventory that is virtually infinite until you reach your weight limit. All player inventories work this way. I need to know how to get it to appear and arrange. This includes hover over capabilities, rearranging items. I'm new to development and would really like to know if someone else has done something similar.

Has been done too many times. Did you even check YT?

edit: to more specific:

an inventory hud that is infinite

  • a scroll box or a wrap box can hold any number of children widgets (most panels can but these 2 are useful for storing lists

  • when it comes to swapping items around, I posted a solution here a couple of days ago

  • hovering: check the list of overridable functions that widgets come with, mouse enter / leave is just a couple that will be useful here

  • and look into drag & drop tutorials for UMG

Thanks for your answer, although I wasn't asking for a inventory system this was specifically a HUD. Your answer helped me though so that's a plus!

Search for unrealgaimedev on youtube (make sure you spell that like I did), he has a full series on creating inventory including sorting, splitting, tooltips etc.
