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 can I make a custom node to create widget+event?

So, I have a dialogue system, but every time I want to use it, I need to create the widget->Add it to the viewport->Execute the custom event http://prntscr.com/o1vefw

So, I want to make a plugin to add a custom blueprint node which automatically do all these 3 things with a single node, instead of having to add 3 nodes for a single function. How should I do it? Are there better ways? I know, I could collapse the nodes or turn them into a function, but I want to make them usable in every actor of the game I want.

Then create start dialog in somewhere global like game mode where they can referenced easily from anywhere. You can make blueprint function library (in blueprint not C++) or macro library that will deal with frequent casting.

Thank you a lot! With the blueprint function library I can make what I needed without C++ involved.
