Widgets not working in Components, Why?

Hi, I’m using the ThirdPersonTemplate and created a InventoryComponent and added it to the ThirdPersonCharacter blueprint.

I can’t create any widgets that work/show that are coded in the InventoryComponent blueprint Is there a special way to reference this? Because if I put the code to create and show a widget in the ThirdPersonCharacter blueprint it works fine. If I make 2 different components I cant get them to communicate between each other. If I keep everything in the ThirdPersonCharacter blueprint then things work. I can communicate between the ThirdPersonCharacter blueprint and my InventoryComponent blueprint and my InventoryComponent blueprint to my ThirdPersonCharacter blueprint.
Any ideas why only widgets aren’t working inside the Component?


UPDATE: updating to unreal engine 4.19 seemed to fix my issues. :slight_smile:
