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"

Get USkeletalMesh * from USkinnedMeshComponent

In USkinnedMeshComponent, it stores a pointer to a USkeletalMesh. The pointer is private, but it is exposed to Blueprint as read only. I went to the Blueprint Editor, and I was able to create a Blueprint node to get a reference to the Skeletal Mesh that is stored in a USkinnedMeshComponent (really a UPoseableMeshComponent). What I want to do is get the pointer to this USkeletalMesh in my C++ code. There is a setter for the USkeletalMesh, but no getter. Perhaps I can figure out a way to create a Blueprint function that gets the reference to the Skeletal Mesh, and call that function from C++, but I don't know if that's even possible.

So how can I get the USkeletalMesh pointer from the USkinnedMeshComponent, in C++?

It doesn't use a getter:

 USkeletalMesh *MyMesh = GetMesh()->SkeletalMesh;
