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 get a variable value from a c++ class to display as an UMG text block

So a few days ago I started making a user interface for my school project. I cannot seem to get a variable value to display in a text block. In the binding I look for all the actors that use UserInterfaceManager. In my current scene, this is only one actor. I then try to return a float using the GetCurrentSpeed method. My widget and c++ code both compile, but my text is always set to 0.0, when it should be 5. Even when I hardset Speed to any other number, it always displays 0.0. Any idea what I'm doing wrong here?

You need to connect GetText0 block to the GetAllActorsOfClass block.

Wow you're a legend. Don't know why I didn't try that. You helped me big time. I connected GetText0 to GetAllActors and connected GetCurrentSpeed to the return node. It now works!
