Help with Mouse-over text on Canvas

Hey Everyone! I have a question to ask: I’m currently tying to detect when the mouse cursor crosses over a string of text from an array of items in an inventory. Attached is an example image to help illustrate what I’m trying to accomplish. I’m not using scaleform because I do not wish to buy flash and learn/use different programs, cross integrate, ETC (RIP UTUISCENE). The goal is to be able to select one of those strings (that is dynamically generated in a for loop) and apply its properties to the ship I’m flying after clicking on it. I used to work on this (for UT3, NOT UDK):

Unfortunately I went through a divorce (we are amicable and civil towards eachother) that really got to me and lost a lot of the assets I used do to an HDD failure. Anyway, I have managed to recover most (if not all) of the assets I am using. How Would I be able to go about doing this? Here is a code snippet:

EDIT: I managed to get it to work. Giving back to the community, here is a code snippet:
