I’ve been looking around and haven’t found much on the topic, so I figured I’d ask here. I understand that using UE4 for this is completely overkill, but is it possible to create form applications with UE4? By form applications I mean similarly to Qt or Windows Forms. A possible use case would be to create tools to communicate with a UE4 game via the network or something that could relay information too and from. Again, I understand there are other libraries designed specifically for forms, but UI programming is something I already know how to do and I could use that as an entry point to UE4. I’d like to just build a simple application just using the engine to get familiar with it.
I see that there is the Slate UI framework, could this be used to made a GUI form application by itself, and not tied to any game? Sort of like the Windows calculator app, or Steam, etc
