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"

Why doesn't Visual Studio open when selecting "open ___.h"?

I have visual studio 2013 installed, but when I right click on an actor in the scene outline and press "open ___.h" under C++, nothing happens.

I have 2 versions of xpress 2013 and because another programm I use needs 2012 express.

What I have done after downloading "Strategy Game" and clicking on some blucprints taht at the right top show a xyzzz.h file and not being able to open was

  1. go to menu: Window -> Class Viewer

  2. Right clilck on the Actor element

  3. create/name a new header or class named deletemeFirst (you can delete later the h or c++ files)

That will launch actually VS and I guess you can see it now open VS.

This had work for me... or perhaps I don't clicked correctly, anyway, hope it helps.

Are you using an editor you've built yourself with VS2013 Express? If so, please see this answer: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/15829/vs2013-express-does-not-load-parent-class-after-se.html

I'm using the pre-built UE4 and Visual Studio 2013 Express

Does this only work with code builds? I was watching the intro to programming tutorial video and he shows another link in the details menu that does this too, but specifies that link is only on code builds.

Ok after checking, Visual Studio doesn't open when clicking that link in the details menu either.

I was able to get this to SORT OF work by going to File > Create Class (or something similar, not at my workstation right now). However! Upon closing and reopening this project, I got some sort of error telling me that the project wasn't compiled or something. Can anyone out there make sense of all this?
