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"

Missing '*' in Expected a pointer type


I have this very simple code that refuses to compile and I have no idea why.... The error says: Missing '*' in Expected a pointer type

If I remove the UFUNCTION(BlueprintCallable, Category = "BlinkerGameState") line, then everything compiles fine.

I found some other threads with the same mistake but none with a similar case.


 #pragma once
 #include "GameFramework/GameState.h"
 #include "BlinkerGameState.generated.h"
 class BLINKER_API ABlinkerGameState : public AGameState
     UFUNCTION(BlueprintCallable, Category = "BlinkerGameState")
     void SortPlayerStateByScore(TArray<APlayerState>& _PlayersToSort);


 // Fill out your copyright notice in the Description page of Project Settings.
 #include "Blinker.h"
 #include "BlinkerGameState.h"
 void ABlinkerGameState::SortPlayerStateByScore(TArray<APlayerState>& _PlayersToSort)

Any idea about what I'm doing wrong?

1 answer: sort voted first

BlueprintCallable don't allow to have reference in argument, so that is expected pointer for your case, so u can change to this if u want to use BlueprintCallable.

 TArray<APlayerState*> SortPlayerStateByScore(TArray<APlayerState*> _PlayersToSort)
