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 Owner of attached Parent


I am attaching a child actor to a skeletal mesh component using Attach Actor to Component from within an actor blueprint.

I am then trying to from within the child actor gain access to variables located within the parent actor blueprint.

From what I've read this is done by getting the root component and then using this to get the attached parent which can be used to get the owner and finally to cast this to the blueprint actor type.

I seem unable to use the attached parent component received from get attached parent to get the owner like so: alt text

I'm assuming that I am doing something stupid and any enlightenment of what this is would be appreciated!

You should drag from "Return Value" of "Get Attach parent" node, and then type Get owner.
