The Widget3D is the 3D representation of a Widget in the world! As it is an Actor, you have all the flexibility of it's methods!

🎒 Examples

Spawning a Widget3D from a Widget

Client/Index.lua
-- Spawns a Widget
local my_text = Widget(NativeWidget.Text)
my_text:CallBlueprintEvent("SetText", "Hello World!")

-- Spawns the Widget3D directly from a Widget
local my_widget_3d = my_text:SpawnWidget3D()

🛠 Constructors

You can only spawn Widget3D through Widget:SpawnWidget3D() method.
