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"

Get Asset path from actor


I am trying to get the asset from an actor. I am using the OnLevelActorAdded(AActor* Actor) function and I want to get the path + name of the asset that it has. I want it to work for any kind of asset (particles, meshes etc..). Other methods how to notice when an actor is created with its assets is also welcome!

Note: I am creating an editor plugin.

BP Node For You From Me

I recently added BP nodes to my Victory BP Library to get an object's asset path as well as to create an object from an asset path!

I indeed found your code (https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Dynamic_Load_Object) which works great! Thanks!
