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"

c++ destroy UStaticMesh?

If I need to remove a UStaticMesh from my component, do I NEED to mark it for destruction? Or can I just remove it from my component and leave it for the garbage collector to deal with?

For instance should I do (A):


Or should I just do (B):


I ask because A seams to crash super frequently, as well as giving me "Failed to Load Asset" errors.

B SEEMS to remove the static mesh as I'd like it to? But I haven't found concrete information telling me it's not still floating around un-cleaned-up.

Product Version: UE 4.8

With the A method, the Static mesh will be destroyed, and maybe you're setting the mesh when it doesn't exist, so the editor crashes because it can't load the asset. The B method should work fine. If you want to destroy the component, use:


But you can't use it after it's destroyed!
