I’d like to be able to spawn an EditorUtilityWidget from Python and then call functions or set properties on it. In Blueprint it works – like so:
In Python, however, I can’t seem to figure out how to cast the return value of spawn_and_register_tab back to the correct class. The following spawns the widget tab correctly
import unreal fred_asset = unreal.EditorAssetLibrary.load_asset('/Game/fred.fred') eus = unreal.get_editor_subsystem(unreal.EditorUtilitySubsystem) tab = eus.spawn_and_register_tab(fred_asset)
but there does not seem to be a way to get access to the derived class (‘fred’) to apply a cast to the return value. I’d have expected it to be
but that errors with
Cannot cast type 'EditorUtilityWidget' to 'EditorUtilityWidgetBlueprint'
So – what’s the correct incantation to get the equivalent of the blueprint snippet above?
