How to put HUD on screen?

I just got started with Unreal Engine yesterday and I’m having issues getting the UI to display on screen.

It’s rediculously easy in Unity but I’ve spent all day trying to do something incredibly simple and haven’t gotten anywhere.

So I start a new project. I click Add New -> User Interface -> Widget Blueprint -> “NewHUD”

I double click “NewHUD” and add a few sliders, text, etc.

What do I do that this point? It doesn’t show on the screen? How do I display it on the level?


You would want to create a widget (with the widget that you created), and then add it to the viewport

Something like this:


I added that to the Third Person Character and it worked. Thanks! :slight_smile:

Great, glad to hear that:)
