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 ConstructObject to create a component dynamically

I was using this forum post and I am attempting to create a UInputComponent to push/pop on the input stack using the following code:

 RelevantInputComponent = ConstructObject<UInputComponent>(UInputComponent::StaticClass()->GetClass(), GetOwner(), InputComponentName);

However, this fails with the following error:

 Object Class TillerActionPoint1_InputComponent created in ActionPointBoat_C instead of Package

I am calling this in UActorComponnet::InitializeComponent, what am I doing wrong?

This question contained the answer for me, using the following code works:

 RelevantInputComponent = NewNamedObject<UInputComponent>(GetOwner(), InputComponentName);

Presumably you still have to call things like RegsiterComponent etc as described in the original forum post to get the full behaviour.
