I’ve been trying to write some Blueprints/UMG where the user clicks on a part while holding a special key (I use the Tab key), and the UMG HUD displays the Datasmith metadata for that part. I was following this example (it’s near the bottom of the page under “Example usage”):
I’m using 4.20.1, Datasmith 4.20E2, and importing CAD parts from Rhino and SolidWorks, so I know that only limited metadata is imported (name and a value).
I’ve recreated the UMG Graph and Designer exactly, as well as a level Blueprint that looks exactly the example shown above.
When the game runs, all the X-ray stuff works, the camera re-positions, etc. The Product Viewer template is working fine. I can get the UMG text to appear, but clicking with the Tab key held down does not ever change the UMG string to reflect any updated metadata. I’ve tried both Orbit Mode and Flying Mode.
Does the example referenced above not work with the Product Viewer template? Clearly there’s something I’m missing! I’m happy to attach a zipped project file.
