Widgets not ticking

I have some widgets whose position I would like to update every tick. Unfortunately, I can see the widget loaded on the screen, but the tick event does not seem to work. I set it to print Hello and it does nothing. I put it somewhere else in the code and it spams Hello just fine. Event construct also does not work, as well as event mouse enter.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is not working or has anyone else experienced this?
