Get User Ability Activation Inhibited

This is meant to be used to inhibit activating an ability from an input perspective. (E.g., the menu is pulled up, another game mechanism is consuming all input, etc) This should only be called on locally owned players. This should not be used to game mechanics like silences or disables. Those should be done through gameplay effects.

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
