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"

Component details panel blank if pointers stored in struct array


the blueprint details panel is blank if I store the component pointers in a struct + array but the details panel of placed actors works. It works fine if I declare them without struct and array. What am I doing wrong?

In header of actor but outside of the class:

 struct FTestStruct
     UPROPERTY(VisibleDefaultsOnly, BlueprintReadOnly, Category = "Test")
     USceneComponent* testComponent;
         testComponent= nullptr;

In the actor header:

 UPROPERTY(EditAnywhere, BlueprintReadWrite, Category = "Test")
 TArray<FTestStruct> testStructs;

In the constructor:

 FTestStruct testStruct;
 testStruct.testComponent = CreateDefaultSubobject<USceneComponent>("TestComponent");

Hello, Reisn7CC

It looks like you had created the Blueprint before the struct was added to the class. Please recreate the Blueprint.

Hope this helped!

Thanks for the answer. I probably created the blueprint before I created the struct but I just created a new blueprint and unfortunately the details panel is still blank.

Have you ever fixed this issue? I'm having the exact same problem - array of structs that have pointers to components and those fields are completely invisible, other fields of the struct are visible and editable as always.

What's more tricky, is that I can edit those components through the struct on an instanced object present on a map, but not from defaults in the BP editor.

Sorry to hear about that.

Please note that there is a possibility that in Blueprint editor Details panel is blank because in Components tab some Component of Blueprint (but not the Blueprint itself) is selected.

Hope this helped!
