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"

State of 2D GUI in UE4

I am trying to understand how to create 2d menus for game settings etc.And I can't see anything like Buttons,text fields scrollers,drop down menus.I learnt how to render textures and text in the HUD blueprint.Is it all UE4 has to offer?I mean there is no even a basic GUI framework to create 2D user interface fast?

It's currently experimental - UMG (Unreal Motion Graphics) is the UI solution we're working on. https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?25533-UMG-Documentation-for-4-4-Preview

Ok,that's a good one!But what about Slate?I just have stumbled upon slate Wiki page.Is it smth one can use to set robust GUI in a game?

UMG is built on top of slate, you shouldn't use slate directly. It's not setup to interact with the UObject system.

Experimental code is experimental :) It's a bug in 4.4, has been fixed for the next release.
