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"

Remove subcomponents from Root Component

Hello, I've been trying to create a generated wooden floor actor using C++. I'm creating a StaticMeshComponent for each plank and add this to actor's Root Component.

 UStaticMeshComponent* AGeneratedFloor::CreatePlank(FName name, float y, float x, float scaleLength, float scaleWidth, UStaticMesh* mesh)
     UStaticMeshComponent* tmp = NewNamedObject<UStaticMeshComponent>(this, name);
     (*tmp).SetRelativeLocation(FVector(y, x, 1.0f));
     (*tmp).SetRelativeScale3D(FVector(scaleWidth, scaleLength, 1.0f));
     return tmp;

However I stumbled upon a problem with clearing said components from root (for example on floor size change) and could not find solution here or anywhere else on the internet.

So my question is, what is the correct way of clearing root of it's components?

Thank you for your time and effort.
