Force something to be selected? (Gamepad UI)


So I’m trying to make my UI compatible with game controllers. I’ve managed to make it work pretty well so far, but there’s one thing that’s extremely annoying. Even if I set the Selected property to true on an element, it isn’t selected for my gamepad.

I have many “popup” windows that show up that are easy enough to close on PC, but since for some reason my close buttons don’t get selected by default when a controller is plugin, one has to manually go through all my elements and select it. Shivers.

I already bound some UI to buttons so that is not going to help. I don’t want every single button opening a different UI object anyway.

Is there something I’m doing wrong? Why aren’t my buttons selected by default like I thought they would be?

That first one seems legit.
