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 to spawn blueprint object from c++

Hello, everyone. Here is my problem: I created a c++ class floorCell then used this calss as a parent class for blueprint. add static mesh and a few other things. Also I have a gameMode c++ class which have spawn() function. So I want to spawn floorCells from this function. What should I do. If I just use SpawnActor with floorCell parameter it is of course spawned but without any mesh. Thank you.

You want to spawn the blueprint in c++ ? You need to import the blueprint class. Add a variable to your class, something like:

 UPROPERTY( BlueprintReadWrite )
 TSubclassOf<AFloorCell> FloorCellClass;

Then import the blueprint in the constructor:

 static ConstructorHelpers::FObjectFinder<UClass> FloorCellClassFinder( TEXT( "Blueprint'/Game/YourProject/SomeFolder/YourBP.YourBP_C'" ) );
 FloorCellClass = FloorCellClassFinder.Object;

You can get the reference by right clicking on your bp and doing 'copy reference'. Note the _C near the end which is added on.

Then, in your spawn function, you do this:

 AFloorCell* NewFloorCell = SpawnActor<AFloorCell>( FloorCellClass, SpawnParams );

This is a good answer, but I think in your spawn function you need to add "GetWorld()->" first, ie:

 AFloorCell* NewFloorCell = GetWorld()->SpawnActor<AFloorCell>( FloorCellClass, SpawnParams );
