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"

Getting world in a editor plugin


I have an UObject which is not in the world (just created with NewObject), and I need to create an object in the world from it. I have tried GEngine->GetWorld() and GEditor->GetWorld(), but both of them returned wrong values. I finally did it, but it's really, really awful:

  TArray<FEdMode *> arr;

Is there a better way to do it?

Thanks, Tavon.

Thanks! Anyone know how to get PIE World in Editor Plugin? Method above will always return editor world not PIE World.
