OnUIAnim_KeyFrameCompleted[edit]

delegate private OnUIAnim_KeyFrameCompleted (UIScreenObject Sender, name AnimName, UIAnimation.EUIAnimType TrackType)

Parameters:

  • Sender - the widget that owns the animation sequence
  • AnimName - the name of the sequence containing the key-frame that finished.
  • TrackType - the identifier for the track containing the key-frame that completed.

OnUIAnim_TrackCompleted[edit]

delegate private OnUIAnim_TrackCompleted (UIScreenObject Sender, name AnimName, int TrackTypeMask)

Callback which is triggered when all key-frames in a single track of an active UI animation sequence have completed. You must call Add_UIAnimTrackCompletedHandler to subscribe to this delegate.

Parameters:

  • Sender - the widget executing the animation containing the track that just completed
  • AnimName - the name of the animation sequence containing the track that completed.
  • TrackTypeMask - a bitmask of EUIAnimType values indicating which animation tracks completed. The value is generated by left shifting 1 by the value of the track type. A value of 0 indicates that all tracks have completed (in other words, that the entire animation sequence is completed).

Functions[edit]

Static native functions[edit]

GetActivePlayerCount[edit]

native static final noexport function int GetActivePlayerCount ()

Returns the number of active split-screen players.

Called immediately after a child has been added to this screen object.

Parameters:

  • WidgetOwner - the screen object that the NewChild was added as a child for
  • NewChild - the widget that was added

DisablePlayerInput[edit]

final event DisablePlayerInput (byte PlayerIndex, optional bool bRecurse)

Disables input processing in this widget for the player located at the specified index of the Engine.GamePlayers array. If this control is no longer masking any players (i.e. the new PlayerInputMask would be 0), the input mask will be reset to allow input from any player.

Parameters:

  • bRecurse - propagate the new input mask to all children of this control.

EnablePlayerInput[edit]

final event EnablePlayerInput (byte PlayerIndex, optional bool bRecurse)

Enables input processing in this widget for the player located at the specified index of the Engine.GamePlayers array. If this control is not currently masking input (i.e. its PlayerInputMask is 0xF), the input mask will be set to only allow input from the player index specified.

Parameters:

  • PlayerIndex - the index of the player that this control should now respond to input for.
  • bRecurse - propagate the new input mask to all children of this control.

GetSupportedUIActionKeyNames[edit]

event GetSupportedUIActionKeyNames (out array<nameout_KeyNames)

Allow Script to add UI Actions

Initialized[edit]

event Initialized ()

Called once this screen object has been completely initialized, before it has activated its InitialState or called Initialize on its children. This event is only called the first time a widget is initialized. If reparented, for example, the widget would already be initialized so the Initialized event would not be called.

IsGamepadConnected[edit]

event final bool IsGamepadConnected (int ControllerId)

Wrapper for determining whether a controller is connected. Not affected by whether a player is active on that gamepad.

Parameters:

  • ControllerId - the id of the gamepad to check connectivity for. If not specified, uses the gamepad id of the player that owns this menu.

Returns:

TRUE if the gamepad is currently connected and turned on.

IsLoggedIn[edit]

event bool IsLoggedIn (optional int ControllerId, optional bool bRequireOnlineLogin)

Returns:

Returns whether or not the player with the specified controller id is logged in

PostInitialize[edit]

event PostInitialize ()

Called after this screen object's children have been initialized. While the Initialized event is only called when a widget is initialized for the first time, PostInitialize() will be called every time this widget receives a call to Initialize(), even if the widget was already initialized. Examples would be reparenting a widget.

RemovedChild[edit]

event RemovedChild (UIScreenObject WidgetOwner, UIObject OldChild, optional array<UIObjectExclusionSet)

Called immediately after a child has been removed from this screen object.

Parameters:

  • WidgetOwner - the screen object that the widget was removed from.
  • OldChild - the widget that was removed
  • ExclusionSet - used to indicate that multiple widgets are being removed in one batch; useful for preventing references between the widgets being removed from being severed. NOTE: If a value is specified, OldChild will ALWAYS be part of the ExclusionSet, since it is being removed.

RemovedFromParent[edit]

event RemovedFromParent (UIScreenObject WidgetOwner)

Notification that this widget's parent is about to remove this widget from its children array. Allows the widget to clean up any references to the old parent.

Parameters:

  • WidgetOwner - the screen object that this widget was removed from.

SetVisibility[edit]

event SetVisibility (bool bIsVisible)

Changes whether this widget is visible or not. Should be overridden in child classes to perform additional logic or abort the visibility change.

Parameters:

  • bIsVisible - TRUE if the widget should be visible; false if not.

UIAnimationEnded[edit]

event UIAnimationEnded (UIScreenObject Sender, name AnimName, int TrackTypeMask)

Notification that one or more tracks in an animation sequence have completed.

Parameters:

  • Sender - the widget that completed animating.
  • AnimName - the name of the animation sequence that completed.
  • TypeMask - a bitmask indicating which animation tracks completed. It is generated by left shifting 1 by the values of the EUIAnimType enum. A value of 0 indicates that all tracks in the animation sequence have finished.

UIAnimationStarted[edit]

event UIAnimationStarted (UIScreenObject Sender, name AnimName, int TrackTypeMask, optional bool bSetAnimatingFlag)

Notification that an animation sequence has been activated.

Parameters:

  • Sender - the widget that owns the animation sequence that was activated
  • AnimName - the name of the animation sequence that was activated.
  • TypeMask - a bitmask indicating which animation tracks were activated. It is generated by left shifting 1 by the values of the EUIAnimType enum. A value of 0 indicates that all tracks in the animation sequence are being activated.
  • bSetAnimatingFlag - indicates whether this widget should mark itself as animating.

Other instance functions[edit]

Add_UIAnimKeyFrameCompletedHandler[edit]

final function Add_UIAnimKeyFrameCompletedHandler (delegate<OnUIAnim_KeyFrameCompletedKeyFrameCompletedDelegate)

Adds a function to the list of callbacks that receive notification that a UI animation key-frame has completed.

for now, these just assign...encapsulated like this to make it easy to change the delegate assignment into a list, for example eventually, these will add the passed in value to an array of delegates (once animation is being handled by a component)
