When HitTest(Self/Child) is disabled in RetainerBox, the child widget is assumed to not fire all hit test events. However, in this case, the hit test event is fired in the child widget. This is an insufficient effect of the "Not Hit-Testable (Self&All Children)" setting on RetainerBox. The workaround are to add a CanvasPanel or Overlay to the RetainerBox child widgets and set "Not Hit-Testable (Self&All Children)" to Visibility for the widget, or disable retainer rendering. 

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open the repro project in editor
  2. Play in editor
  3. Move the mouse cursor over the button widget


HitTest(Self/Child) is disabled in RetainerBox, but OnHovered event is detected and logged in child widgets.


Not trigger OnHovered event.
