Other Functions[edit]

PostRender (Canvas Canvas) 
Called after rendering world geometry. This is the place where the HUD is actually drawn. Note: DrawHud will only be called if the player is no spectator and has a pawn, otherwise DrawSpectatingHud is called instead. So if you want to draw your hud without your player having a pawn (for example for a RTS type of view), you have to overwrite this function.
