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 can I listen for an anim notify event on C++?

I have a montage with a custom notify and I have inherited the UAnimInstance to handle my animationBP from code, that being said I have access to the FAnimNotifyEvent but how do I declare a callback on C++? On the BP you just add a new "Anim notify event" and that's it, how can I do the same on code?

P.D. I don't want to add anything on my blueprint for this, how do I make the callback only on code side?. I think I could create a subclass of UAnimNotify (or UAnimNotifyState) and override their methods but then the callback implementation lacks the UAnimInstance's variables I have, so far I can only think about exposing the method I want to call on C++ for my BP to call it whenever the notify fires.

Product Version: UE 4.10

I encountered that same question before, he is adding a notify from code but he has an inherited class of UAnimNotifyState where all the events fired by the notify are handled, and as I pointed out I want to be able to create a callback on my UAnimInstance custom class (like you would usually do on a BP), if you know of a way to connect the event from the UAnimNotifyState to the UAnimInstance callback please let me know.

If you derive from AnimNotify, the first argument to the callback (Received_Notify) is USkeletalMeshComponent. You can get to your anim instance from there.

Oh really? didn't notice that, thanks! Edit: I just did some refactoring on my code and this totally worked, thanks again for your help :)
