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"

C++ Interface Iterator

Hi Community,

I need to iterate over objects that Implement certain Interface.

I have seen that there's a solution in blueprints: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/BlueprintAPI/Utilities/GetAllActorswithInterface/index.html

I'd be great having something like:

 for (TInterfaceIterator<ISavable> SaveActorItr(World); SaveActorItr; ++SaveActorItr)
     FSaveLoadInitClassData InitCD = SaveActorItr->GetSaveLoadInitClassData();
     ToBinary << InitCD;
     ToBinary << **SaveActorItr;

I have seen this solution, from the awesome Rama, but It seems to me that there must be a rather elegant way of doing it.

 IToStringInterface* TheInterface = NULL;
 for ( TObjectIterator<AActor> It; It; ++It )
     //Try InterFaceCasting
     TheInterface = InterfaceCast<IToStringInterface>(*It);
     //Run the Event specific to the actor, if the actor has the interface
     if(TheInterface) ClientMessage(TheInterface->ToString());

Any ideas?

Thanks very very much.

You can use this blueprint function in C++ too, and so, use UGameplayStatics::GetAllActorsWithInterface to get all the actors using a specific interface. But you still have to cast your interface or use IISavable::Execute_GetSaveLoadInitClassData(actor). But I am not sure if you can get a result with the auto-generated Execute_* functions (didn't try).
