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"

Using Function Pointer as parameter raises error

Hey all!

So I am using a method which uses a Function Pointer as an input parameter.

This is how the declaration and definition look like:


         bool PerformTask(void (AItem::*FunctioPtr)(), uint8 Priority, float Length, bool bSuspendEqualPriority = false);


  bool AItem::PerformTask(void (AItem::*FunctioPtr)(), uint8 Priority, float Length, bool bSuspendEqualPriority)

This setup worked in a prior project, but now it raises a "Unrecognized type 'void'" error. Why is this happening and how could I resolve it?

Does your function have to be UFUNCTION()?

Does it compile if you dont use UFUNCTION() ?

Let us know!

Omitting the UFUNCTION() declaration did actually solve the problem!

Thanks Rama, also for your article about function pointers!

Greetings, guys. I've got similar question. So is it possible somehow to use function pointers with UFUNCTION macro to call them from blueprints?

avatar image Fluppi393 Aug 24 '16 at 08:48 PM

I don't think that's possible. However you could use the function name as a parameter (the function to call needs to be a UFUNCTION too) and then execute that function via ProcessEvent(FindFunction(FunctionName), NULL) on a UObject derived object.

Thanks, Fluppi, I think that it should work in my case. At least I will try :)

I got this syntax compiling for function declaration, but not sure exactly how to call the function passed in as the parameter. Any ideas?

 void APFCharacter::Exclaim(void (APFCharacter::*ExclaimFunc)(void))

Here's the error:

12>C:\UnrealEngine\Prizefighter\Source\Prizefighter\Private\PFCharacter.cpp(719): error C2064: term does not evaluate to a function taking 0 arguments
