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"

Animgraph Transition Rule Order of Operations/IsValid Check

Hi, I am trying to access data stored in a character reference in my animgraph, but since my character reference is null in the editor it is causing output spam.

Is there a way to guarantee order of operations so I can do an IsValid check in my transition rules so I'm not being spammed when I'm using the blueprint in the editor? I thought just making sure the "IsValid" was the first argument in the boolean and might work like it does in C++ since And/Or are short circuiting operators, but it seems that that's not the case for blueprints.

Is there some way to get this functionality?

I'm aware that I could make a bunch of pure functions to get this functionality, but I don't want to make a new function every time I need to check an IsValid in an area without a guaranteed flow.
