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"

Parsing widget from bp as TSharedPtr

Hi I am trying to parse/create a TSharedPtr to a c++ function from blueprint, I have not used shared pointers before and have no clue on how to accomplish this.

//.cpp

 void UStaticBPLibrary::ShowLoadingScreen(TSharedPtr<SWidget> inWidget)
 {
     FLoadingScreenAttributes LoadingScreen;
     LoadingScreen.WidgetLoadingScreen = inWidget;
     GetMoviePlayer()->SetupLoadingScreen(LoadingScreen);
 }

//.h

 UFUNCTION(BlueprintCallable, Category = Loading)
 static void ShowLoadingScreen(TSharedPtr<class SWidget> inWidget);

Error:

 Unrecognized type 'TSharedPtr' - type must be a UCLASS, USTRUCT or UENUM
Product Version: UE 4.10

Passing in a UUserWidget* and using TakeWidget(); solved this for me :)

 void UStaticBPLibrary::ShowLoadingScreen(UUserWidget* inWidget)
 {
     FLoadingScreenAttributes LoadingScreen;
     TSharedPtr<SWidget> WidgetPtr = inWidget->TakeWidget();
     LoadingScreen.WidgetLoadingScreen = WidgetPtr;
     GetMoviePlayer()->SetupLoadingScreen(LoadingScreen);
 }
