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"

How i do i get the attached / children actors of an Actor?

Hello, i want to know in C++ what are the actors that are attached to another Actor (that has actors inside himself on the Scene outliner). How can i know this without iterating through all the actors and checking if it's attached to our Actor? Thank you

Hi xlar8or

Its fairly simple actually, The AActor class has a public variable named 'Children'. Its a TArray of AActor pointers.

Simply doing this should suffice

 AActor* MyActor;
 TArray<AActor*> MyActor_Children = MyActor->Children;

I think i typed for intellisense child or children and nothing came up. Thanks a lot :) One question related to why i needed this, if an actor is owned by another actor that is owned by a character, the first actor is still network relevant to the character right?
