On Focus - U Gui Button [SOLVED]
« on: February 06, 2018, 05:14:50 AM »
Hi Guys,

I been working on some Gui for our game KnightOut.

What I would like to do is when a button is focused a event happens. It does work when I click on it, and with the help from the U Gui Pointer Events script I can hover over it with the mouse and trigger the event.

However what I would like is to trigger the event when it's focused, because then it also works with a joystick and with the keyboard. You could click the button, but in this case it would work best when it's just focused, and the click would be a unnecessary extra thing.

Let me know if you have any ideas to solve this? Or if you had a similar problem.

Thank you,
/Dennis

Hi,

you can use the component "EventTrigger" which will allow you send an event, which you can catch in various ways ( directly calling a PLayMakerFsm, or using the EventProxy wizard ( from the PlayMaker utils package)



 Bye,
