Any new UMG tutorials?

Has anyone done a new UMG tutorial for 4.5? I’m specifically looking for one on creating a menu system and onscreen messages.

I have been thinking about doing a tutorial on how I have been doing menu systems. Makes them easy and quick to build with functionality.

Check out one of the team’s Twitch broadcasts. I found it helpful in getting started down this road.

Thanks Godling but that’s 4.4. I’m looking for newer stuff - the version in 4.5 is different.

There’s not a heck of a lot of different between 4.4 and 4.5, just moved some things around.

I thought binding buttons was out and casting was in in 4.5?

You can still bind buttons. If you select your button and scroll through it’s properties, you should find an OnClick binder. I liked the older one, but it does the same thing basically.

Edit:

So what was all the noise about casting?

We used to have to cast created widgets, but now the return value of create widget is the actual widget you created. No need to cast anymore.

I’m confused (obviously). I thought that with 4.5 we were not supposed to bind the buttons anymore, obviously I must have been smoking crack that night. LOL
