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"

Yeah its the .obj file made by VS that is making it appear in the UE. After you have removed the .h and cpp from your VS project, 'Build > Clean Solution' in VS to get rid of it.

As far as I know, to delete a c++ class find the folder that it is stored in on your computer and delete the file manually, then delete it from the solutions explorer in your IDE. When you restart Unreal it will reload your classes into the editor the c++ file you deleted should be gone.

but since in content browser has a "delete" option , it should be able to delete it from content browser directly so that i dont have to do these step...but i dont know why the "delete" option is in grey =_=!

Yeah, I know what you mean xD. I ran into this problem a couple days ago and the best answer I could find was the one I gave you. Maybe someone has a better solution.

It doesnt work ( for me ) - the Unreal Editor do not delete the compiled files and block the used names.

The true is, Delete from windows explorer, and find your .uproject file , right click, choose "Generate Visual Studio project files"
