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"

Iterate through the sockets of a mesh looking for sockets with the same basename and an integer ID, "BaseName%d"

Is it possible to iterate through a TArray containing all of the sockets using, as an example, "Thruster%d"? Here is my current code:

 AWeapon::AWeapon(const FObjectInitializer& ObjectInitializer)
 WeaponMesh = ObjectInitializer.CreateDefaultSubobject<UStaticMeshComponent>(this, TEXT("Weapon Mesh"));
 RootComponent = WeaponMesh;

 MeshSockets = WeaponMesh->GetAllSocketNames();
 for (auto It = MeshSockets.CreateConstIterator; It; ++It)
     if (It == FName(TEXT("Thruster%d")))

 TrailComp = ObjectInitializer.CreateDefaultSubobject<UParticleSystemComponent>(this, TEXT("Weapon Trail"));
 for (auto It = ThrusterSockets.CreateConstIterator; It; ++It)
     TrailComp->AttachTo(RootComponent, It);


Any help is appreciated.
