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 exclude objects from build?

Is there currently any way to flag an object to be excluded during the in editor level build process? I've been sorting through the engine code for awhile trying to find one and haven't come up with anything.

Even just a way to check whether the engine is currently in the build phase so I can manually exclude my objects would be great. All I've found for that is "IsInRenderingThread()" and "IsInGameThread()" and they don't help here.

I see this in source code

  Put code that ill be included in editor build

So if you want something to be excluded you negate the flag


Thats build time, the runtime solution is... it should return true if you currently running in editor... i think

While useful that doesn't solve my problem as GEngine->IsEditor() returns true also for the in editor gameplay and previews making testing useless. I have another lead I'll check out though, thanks.
