Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

[4.4 Crash & Suggestion] Cannot make a UPROPERTY Dynamic Array of TSubobjectPtr

Dear Epic,

Hi there!

I wanted to make a dynamic array of TSubobjectPtr for my actor, to store a variety of different collision shapes, only one of which would be active at a time.

So I wrote this:

 UPROPERTY(VisibleAnywhere, BlueprintReadOnly, Category="Abatron Wall")
 TArray < TSubobjectPtr < UStaticMeshComponent > > MorphCollisions222; 

This compiles perfectly!

Crash On Editor Load

After compiling, when I load editor, I get this crash:

 Unknown exception - code 00000001 (first/second chance not available)

The Work Around

The work around I developed was to use a static array instead

 UPROPERTY(VisibleAnywhere, BlueprintReadOnly, Category="Abatron Wall")
 TSubobjectPtr<UStaticMeshComponent> MorphCollisions[MORPH_MAX];

Editor Drag-Duplicate Bug

But when I try to drag - duplicate this actor with static component array in the level,

It can't duplicate the static array components and then they are invalid on the partially created drag-created actors.

I dont know if it is even possible for the current drag-duplicate implementation to handle my static array of TSubobjectPtr

and I have had problems with custom C++ actor components and the drag duplicate current implementation


Why dont you fix the drag-duplicate (using translate widget) to use the same method as when you drag from content browser?


When I drag from the content browser, the actor with static array of TSubobjectPtr works perfectly!

Thanks for posting Rama! This bug was a little hard to figure that "Drag-duplicate" would crash the map on load instead of dragging out of the content browser for placing these wall actors.

Hi Rama,

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I have submitted a report about this issue for further investigation (TTP# 349346).
