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"

[Feature Request] Orgainizing blueprint attributes

I'm working on a complicated Blueprint and want to organize attributes for better understanding.

By default Blueprint Editor allows us to organize attributes in categories. I saw several prebuilt blueprints, where attributes are placed in subcategories. For example, in the Third Person Blueprint, there's a category 'Pawn' with a subcategory 'Character'. I've inspected the attribute bPressedJump, it is placed in category 'Pawn|Character'. alt text alt text

I've tried myself to place attributes in custom Category|Subcategory. It didn't work... It creates category name 'Category|Subcategory'. I suppose it can be achieved via C++.

Moreover, how to create attributes hidden under spoiler?

thnx!

This topic can be marked as solved. UE4 version 4.10 at least supports subcategories.

In C++ you add "AdvancedDisplay" specifier to UPROPERTY() and yes "|" creates subcategories if you use it in "Category" specifier. I guess this does not work just by typing in category Blueprint, i don't think you can do dropdown in blueprint either. Lot of cosmetic features are exclusive to C++, you might consider posing feature request in feedback forum, other then that you need to use C++. Here you got list of specifier you can use in UPROPERTY:

You can get dropdown menus for enum properties, though the menu is annoyingly tiny (shows 2-3 entries) and you have to scroll all the time.

I thought about ENUMs, but then I have to create custom structures, etc. etc. too many labour work...
