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"

Can UnreadHeaderTool handle #ifdef?

I tried to include a header conditionally, but I am getting the following error:

"In MyActor: Unmatched '#endif' in class or global scope"

Here is the relevant part of the header I am using #ifdef in:

 #pragma once
 #include "Foo.h"
 #include "GameFramework/Actor.h"
 #include "MyActor.generated.h"
 class AMyActor : public AActor

The header inside ifdef/endif isn't important - I get the same error even when there's nothing between ifdef and endif.

Is there a way around this problem?

It seems that #ifdef (and #ifndef) aren't currently supported, however we have a pull request which should fix that: https://github.com/EpicGames/UnrealEngine/pull/67

Could you try using the following instead:

 #if defined MYDEFINITION

"#if defined" does get handled correctly. I always used the #ifdef shorthand, so I forgot that the longer version even existed. Thank you.

Hi, support for #ifdef and #ifndef was integrated in this commit:

Thanks for the fix and for letting me know.
