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"

Writing a plugin for an iOS framework

I'd like to write a UE4 plugin that links to an iOS framework. My guess right now is that I should take the static lib that the iOS framework wraps and put in the Binaries folder of plugin, and write a C++ API that calls methods in that framework/static lib. My questions are:

  1. Is the approach above correct?

  2. How do I get my game to link against that particular framework/static lib? Do I need to add a dependency in the *.Build.cs?

Hey Kevlar,

You should be able to add frameworks to your plugins build.cs like you suspect.

Just add:


Hope this helps. Terence

While it's not specific to iOS this post is probably enough to get you pointed in the right direction.
