How to use Add ChildActorComponent to dynamicallly spawn blueprint instances?
I am trying to spawn Instances of a blueprint class from an other blueprint. I want to see them during construction so I use the constructor function Add ChildActorComponent. But I must be doing something wrong because I don't see any objects appearing.
Is BP Container your variable from the other blueprint? Are you actually exposing and pulling the variable from the other blueprint somewhere else?
Search blueprint communication. There is a tutorial on exposing variables and functions from other blueprints and a certain way you need to bring them into a different BP.

For Add ChildActorComponent, you have to select the node in the Construction Script graph and choose a Child Actor Class from the Details panel. Target needs to be left set as Self (empty pin) as you are adding the component to the blueprint you are calling the node in.
Hope that helps!
