Unreal Motion Graphics UI Designer (UMG) is a visual UI authoring tool which can be used to create UI elements such as in-game HUDs, menus or other interface related graphics you wish to present to your users. At the core of UMG are Widgets, which are a series of pre-made functions that can be used to construct your interface (things like buttons, checkboxes, sliders, progress bars, etc.). These Widgets are edited in a specialized Widget Blueprint, which uses two tabs for construction: the Designer tab allows for the visual layout of the interface and basic functions while the Graph tab provides the functionality behind the Widgets used.

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.
