Letter By Letter Text Display

In my current project, i would like to have it so that One letter after another appears rather than the entire sentence using a UMG. I’ve seen a few tutorials online for how to achieve this but they are either not what I’m looking for or they don’t properly explain how they achieved it. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are you talking about simulating a string being typed out on the screen? If so, there are a lot of ways you could achieve that. One example:

Split text as an array of chars;
Add empty text to screen.
Loop through array of chars, storing an Id value. The Id identify the character index…
For each Char in Array, add to text Char[Id];
Multiply Id * deltaTime.

Thank you ausernottaken ill try this out, BrUnO XaVIeR could you show me an example of what you mean, I’m more of a visual learner.

I was bored so I made one, might come handy in my project aswell. Check the attachments. Open zip, copy .uasset in the content folder. It requires 4.15. Not sure if it works in previous versions.
