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"

Set Actor Hidden In Game doesn't hide child actors

THIS is more about in-editor bug, so I've created another report for in-game bug. Repro is simple:

In 'Blueprint A', add child actor in Construction Script via 'Add Child Actor Blueprint' and try to hide the 'Blueprint A' by Set Actor Hidden in Game. Whole actor will hide, but all child actor components will remain unhidden.

Product Version: UE 4.10

Hi Slavq,

I believe the node you are looking for is pictured below. It allows you to propagate to children.

Let me know if that works for you.

Thanks, yes it works, but I mean a situation where we try to hide the main actor (so 'Target' input is not connected, it's "Self"), not the child actors - then whole actor hides, but its child actor components remain unhidden.

For example: Actor 'A' has 5 child actors 'B'. When trying to hide whole actor 'A', all his 5 child actors 'B' remain unhidden.

I've thought that this is not an intended behavior, since child actors are a 'part' of main actor?

No, it's not intended behavior but I believe the root cause is the same as the 'editor' issue that you linked above. And the resolution for that issue is that it will be fixed when a future planned feature is finally implemented.

The node above is more of a workaround until that feature goes in.
