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 know if touch/tap on BP's component

Hello, I'm making a game in which i spawn some Static Mesh Components dynamically and the user has to touch/tap on them in order to get some points, i'm kinda lost in the last part as i don't know how to identify if the touch/tap was exactly on a specific mesh, how can i do that in blueprints? that the user taps a cube for example and i know which cube it was?

If you create your blueprint with a Static Mesh component, that component will have an OnInput TouchBegin event. If you are using 4.7 all of the input events are available at the bottom of the Details panel when the component is selected. You can use that event within the objects BP to call a function within the player (like AddPoints) if you want.
