Is Event Construct the same as Event BeginPlay?

I cannot get my main menu to work and I believe the reason why is that I cannot find Event BeginPlay anywhere in the node editor/blueprint editor

The only thing I can find is Event Construct, are these the same event triggers? or am I missing something? Why can I not find Event BeginPlay?

I’m guessing you’re using a widget blueprint here. If that’s so, then yes “Event Construct” is the widget equivalent of Event Begin Play found in normal blueprints. And “Event Pre Construct” replaces the Construction Script.

If you assign some values for some variables in Construct you can initialize them and so you see it in default properties, it’s a secondary way to initialize variables.
