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"

Button click not working.

Make sure the containers housing buttons are set to Self Hit Test Invisible. Also, make sure that the text boxes are set to Hit Test Invisible. The buttons themselves should be set to Visible.

edit: taking a closer look at your hierarchy, I think I see the issue. You've used a button as a container - Inventory 1 - clicking a button does not tunnel through to the items below in the hierarchy as default. You've got options here:

  • do not use a button as a container, use a Self Hit Test Invisible border

  • set the button to Self Hit Test Invisible - defeats using a button in the first place

  • there are other option but they're too complex for something straightforward like this
