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 get a Blackboard Object in C++?

I'm trying to convert my BP_GameAIController blueprint (subclass of AIController) to c++ code. I'm really new to unreal c++ programming so I need a little help.

I have a function named AIGetTargetGameChar that gets an object from the blackboard like this:

alt text

I created an AIController subclass, added the AIModule to the Build.cs file.

My Behavior tree and blackboard is created using the Editor. How sould I create a function like this in code? I noticed there is no GetBlackboard function available.

Is there an good i tutorial in c++ available? I could not find one.

Thank you.

If you want to work with C++ I strongly suggest you started looking for functions in header files first. Blackboard getter you're looking for is UAIBlueprintHelperLibrary::GetBlackboard. If you're using launcher versions of UE4 you won't be able to look at the implementation details, so I also encourage you to get full sources from github for the sole purpose of reading code. If you read UAIBlueprintHelperLibrary::GetBlackboard's implementation you'd find out that it boils down to calling FindComponentByClass() on pawn's controller.

Happy reading and welcome to the demanding yet satisfying world of UE4 C++ coding! :D

Most nodes are real functions in C++ so you can find them by searching in API refrence


It's a static function so you should call it UAIBlueprintHelperLibrary::GetBlackboard(SomeActor);
