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 to add UInstancedStaticMeshComponent at runtime?


I'd like to add UInstancedStaticMeshComponents at runtime to my actor, but outside of the constructor. The reason for that is, that I have a TArray with static Meshes, that the user can fill with statis meshes. At runtime, for each of those added static meshes, a Instanced Static Mesh component should be added for each mesh, which then gets instances added to it as needed. I have a blueprintcallable method in my actor, that needs to add those components.

I tried storing components in an own TArray, where wheach component is created with the NewObject function. I also attach the component to the RootComponent and add instances. But nothing is rendered in the scene.

Can somebody tell me, what I am doing wrong here?

I forgot to call the RegisterComponent method on the new components. Now it is working as intended.
