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 get current map name with world composition?

Hi I am looking to get current map name when using world composition. I will use it to create folder and organize data for each sub-map.

I try to use : GetWorld()->WorldComposition->GetWorld()->GetMapName() or GetWorld()->GetMapName()

but I only get the name of the parent of the world composition.

Is there a way to know which level is the current active one?

You need map package name. GetWorld()->GetOutermost()->GetName(); In PIE map name will have special prefix like: 'Game/Maps/UEDPIE0_MyMapName'

I think you misunderstood what I mean.

Your solution always give me the parent name but with the hierarchy of the folder.

But I don't need the hierarchy of the map. I need the name of the current sub level.

For example:

My main level is "desert" (with world composition active)

I have a multiple sublevel with the name :




If "desert_landscape" is the active level for editing, I would like to get it's name (e.g "desert_landscape").

After that, I'd like to use his name to create folder in the world hierarchy.

Active level in the editor is a "Current Level", so you code should be like

 FString MapPackageLongName = GetWorld()->GetCurrentLevel()->GetOutermost()->GetName();
 FString MapPackageShortName = FPackageName::GetShortName(MapPackageLongName);

The code above for me doesn't return the sublevel, but just the top (persistent level).
