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"

[Bug] Selected component, right click on Blueprints not showing the selected one.


I m using unreal Engine 4.10.1. My problem is in the question. When i select an object (any of the starter map) then press edit blueprint, it works. But then if i had (for example) a trigger box, select it and go to the same blue print, right click and it shows me the options but not the ones for the selected component. And if i select any other object on the same map, it still doesn't show anything. Please help me.

Have a good day or night. Terry

If I am understanding your issue correctly, what you want to do is be able to reference and call functions that use your Trigger Volume inside of the Ceiling Light blueprint. The reason that you cannot do this is because the Ceiling Light bp has no reference to the Trigger Volume. As an example, go into the Level Blueprint and try the same thing with the Trigger Box selected. You'll see that you are able to get a reference to it, because your level is already aware of its existence. What you'll need to do is either create an actor that has a Trigger Box component, and then create a variable inside of your Ceiling Light bp that is Exposed on Spawn and set it to an instance of that Trigger Box Actor, or add a trigger box component to the Ceiling Light bp itself, and take care of the functionality inside of that blueprint.

If you have anything specific that you are trying to accomplish, feel free to let me know and I'd be more than happy to provide an example of what I'm talking about.

Have a great day,

Sean Flint
