Disable virtual joystick at run time.

I’ve seen this question a few times but unless I’m mistaken it’s never been properly answered. Adding the virtual joystick in the preferences will add the virtual joystick for the entire project, ie all levels including menus.

How do I disable and hide the virtual joystick with blueprints? I’m worried it’s not possible as I keep reading from people that spent just as much time as I have looking into the same problem without any luck…
