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"

Does the CategoryName in UPROPERTY Matter

I've been learning how to program in Unreal Engine for about a week now. There is a lot of information on the API and helpful comments in the source code. Although, I can not figure out the importance or usage of Category names.

Product Version: UE 4.7

Category is only needed when property will be editable or viewable in Details or Defaults tab in editor as well as being exposed to blueprint. It is required in those cases because editor needs to know in which section place specific property in menues, same with functions and component classes.
