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"

How can I programatically create an FName?

My object is going to have an array of subobjects that I would like to expose to the Editor, but I would like control over their identifiers.

 for (uint8 i = 0; i < 4; i++){
     SubObject[i] = CreateDefaultSubobject<USubObject>((TEXT("SubObjectX"));

where, each iteration of the loop, the X gets replaced with whatever the value of 'i' is for that iteration.

So, in the editor, I would have SubObject0, SubObject1, SubObject2, and SubObject3.

How can I accomplish this?
