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"

Crashing when retrieving Process ID

Hello I'm trying to start a process, and get it's process id. However when I run the code below the editor crashes. I'm guessing it's because the process hasn't had enough time to start up and give me the ID.

Does anyone know a way to retrieve the process id when using CreateProc()?

 FString UMyTestClass::MyTestClass(FString MyTextVariable)
     const TCHAR* wavLink = *MyTextVariable;
     uint32* OutProcessID = 0;
     FProcHandle RecordAudioProcess = FPlatformProcess::CreateProc(TEXT("MrProgram.exe"), wavLink, true, false, false, OutProcessID, 0, nullptr, nullptr);
     return TCHAR_TO_UTF8(OutProcessID);

Have you tried TCHAR_TO_UTF8( *OutProcessID ); ?

Or, better yet, FString::FromInt( *OutProcessID );
