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"

This is a very vague question. But I think what you need to do generally speaking is get a reference to wherever you are spawning your "projectiles" or bullets or whatever is being "shot" and when you press that button, you are going to want to have a custom event or function in the firing BP that is going to get called from the widget by using the "On Clicked" event for the button. So like this:

In widget BP:

  1. On Clicked -> Get Reference To Character/Firing BP

  2. Call function/event to fire projectile

In Character/Firing BP

  1. Create custom event/function that spawns a projectile (Spawn Actor From Class Node)
