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"

Can't include plugin in game

So, I've been searching around the answers section here and have found a few solutions. However, none of these seem to work for me. I have a project, Project and a plugin Plugin and the Plugin resides in the project directory under Plugins/Plugin/Source/Plugin. I have my file that I want to include SourceFile.h in the \Plugins\Plugin\Source\Plugin\Private directory and I have marked the class with PLUGIN_API and in my games Build.cs file I have specified:

 PrivateDependencyModuleNames.AddRange(new string[] { "Plugin" });
  PrivateIncludePathModuleNames.AddRange(new string[] { "Plugin" });
 PrivateIncludePaths.AddRange(new string[] { "Plugin/Public", "Plugin/Classes", "Plugin/Private" });
 PublicIncludePaths.AddRange(new string[] { "Plugin/Public", "Plugin/Classes", "Plugin/Private" });

(These were the solutions I found here on the answerhub) However when I try to include the header SourceFile.h in my game the Build Tool doesn't find it.

What am I doing wrong here?

In case anyone is having the same issues. I fixed this by moving the header files from the plugin from the /Private folder into the /Public folder. I guess the header files of a plugin just don't get "exported" if you don't put them in the /Public folder.

Oh well.
