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"

Is there a Z order in a HUD blueprint class?

Hello everyone, I want to create a hud that has more than one texture overlapping each other. How can arrange the order that they appear on screen? (Z order).

1 answer: sort voted first

The stacking order is the same as the drawing order. To make texture A show up on top of texture B: draw texture B first, then draw texture A.

Is this possible in 3D as well somehow?

Because I want a GUI that exists in 3D space. If an element is visible, I want it to be FULLY visible and anything that might be (completely or partially) in front of it, should be rendered in its background.

On top of that I will need to render whatever a player is holding in their hands, without having it clip through any objects that are directly in fron of them.

And lastly, on top of everything else, I want to draw HUD elements, but I don't necessarily want to use a "canvas" for that. I would rather just set the drawing order and use ordinary materials to be more flexible.

This is a super old thread, back when UMG was experimental and we had to use the HUD class.

Now UMG's have a sort priority build into them for sorting render order .

I dont think you will have to do anything in order for the widget to be always on screen because i believe they are always rendered in front of everything else. And in case you ever face problems then go under project settings>rendering and set the z order to something else that better suits your needs.
