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"

Help with ClientMessage

I'm new to C++ and the Unreal Engine and I have a problem on getting the ClientMessage to work. I've looked at the wiki and various examples on how its used but I still get the error that its undefined. Can someone help me understand how to get the Clientmessage to work?

Here is a example of my code.

void ATestTimer::Tick(float DeltaTime) { Super::Tick(DeltaTime);

 float test;
 test = 0;


 test += DeltaTime;
 GEngine->AddOnScreenDebugMessage(-1, 5.f, FColor::Yellow, TEXT("Hello World!")); 

 if (test > 5)
     TimeNumber = 10;

I'm still missing something that I'm unsure of, I know I'm to reference it in the .h file and I tried to use "class PlayerController;" but that isnt working either.How exactly do I reference the PlayerController?
