CreateWidget() not working

i have:

A blueprint Widget with health display;

A Hud derived class.

i’m trying to “attach” this widget to this hud class following this tutorial

there are two problems:

UPROPERTY(EditAnywhere, BlueprintReadWrite, Category = "Widgets")
		TSubclassOf<class UUserWidget> GameHUD;

	UUserWidget* m_gameHud;


if (GameHUD)
		GEngine->AddOnScreenDebugMessage(-1, 5.f, FColor::Blue, TEXT("it works"));
		m_gameHud = CreateWidget<UUserWidget>(GetWorld()->GetGameInstance(), GameHUD);
		if (m_gameHud)

the if(GameHUD) is returning false, to create a widget you have to pass a pointer to widget class(?) and apparently it’s not working like in the tutorial, plus, if i take this if out, the editor crashes e doesn’t even open afterwards. the tutorial the widget is attached to a player controller, so i don’t know if i’m supposed to hud class control widgets.

Same problem here!!!

dont set owning player to get player controller give it “dont specify”
