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"

Container data disappears


I'm trying to create a data structure where actors contain others actors by referencing them in containers as TMap or TArray. To explain a bit, I created a AWall class, a ALabyrinthCell class which reference AWall objects in a TMap and ALabyrinthBody which have a two dimensionnal TArray referencing ALaryrinthCell objects.

I have no problems to spawn these actors as i want to, but once I try to access let's say ALabyrinthCell container through the ALabyrinthBody container, all the data is gone. Anyone has an idea of what i am doing wrong ?



 #pragma once
 #include "Wall.h"
 #include "GameFramework/Actor.h"
 #include "LabyrinthCell.generated.h"
 class LABYRINTH_API ALabyrinthCell : public AActor
     // Sets default values for this actor's properties
     // Called when the game starts or when spawned
     virtual void BeginPlay() override;
     // Called every frame
     virtual void Tick( float DeltaSeconds ) override;
     void formCell();
     void abattreMur(FString cote);
     TMap<FString, class AWall*> getCell() const { return cell; }
     TMap<FString, class AWall*> cell;


function which fills the container

 void ALabyrinthCell::formCell()
     if (GetWorld() != nullptr)
         FVector *v = new FVector(GetTransform().GetLocation().X, GetTransform().GetLocation().Y, GetTransform().GetLocation().Z);
         FRotator *r = new FRotator(0.f, 90.f, 0.f);
         cell.FindOrAdd("north") = (AWall*) GetWorld()->SpawnActor(AWall::StaticClass(),v,r);
         cell.FindOrAdd("east") = (AWall*)GetWorld()->SpawnActor(AWall::StaticClass(), v);
         cell.FindOrAdd("west") = (AWall*)GetWorld()->SpawnActor(AWall::StaticClass(), v);
         cell.FindOrAdd("south") = (AWall*)GetWorld()->SpawnActor(AWall::StaticClass(), v,r);
         FVector Orgin;
         FVector size;
         cell["north"]->GetActorBounds(false, Orgin, size);
         v->Set(GetActorLocation().X, GetActorLocation().Y - size.X, GetActorLocation().Z);
         v->Set(GetActorLocation().X, GetActorLocation().Y + size.X, GetActorLocation().Z);
         v->Set(GetActorLocation().X + size.X, GetActorLocation().Y, GetActorLocation().Z);
         v->Set(GetActorLocation().X - size.X, GetActorLocation().Y, GetActorLocation().Z);

ALabyrinthBody container is a TArray >

ALabyrinthBody function which fills it

 void ALabyrinthBody::formGrid(int x, int y)
     AWall* w = GetWorld()->SpawnActor<AWall>();
     FVector Orgin;
     FVector size;
     w->GetActorBounds(false, Orgin, size);
     FVector *position;
     FVector *origin;
     //Test si on a un nombre pair ou non de ligne et de colonne dans la grille 
     if (y % 2 == 0) {
         if (x % 2 == 0)
             position = new FVector((GetTransform().GetLocation().X - size.Y) - (x*size.Y), (GetTransform().GetLocation().Y - size.Y) - (y*size.Y), GetTransform().GetLocation().Z);
             position = new FVector(GetTransform().GetLocation().X - (x*size.Y), (GetTransform().GetLocation().Y - size.Y) - (y*size.Y), GetTransform().GetLocation().Z);
     else {
         if (x % 2 == 0)
             position = new FVector((GetTransform().GetLocation().X - size.Y) - (x*size.Y), GetTransform().GetLocation().Y  - (y*size.Y), GetTransform().GetLocation().Z);
             position = new FVector(GetTransform().GetLocation().X - (x*size.Y), GetTransform().GetLocation().Y - (y*size.Y), GetTransform().GetLocation().Z);
     origin = new FVector(*position);
     for (int i = 0; i < y; i++)
         for (int j = 0; j < x; j++)
             body[i].Add((ALabyrinthCell*) GetWorld()->SpawnActor(ALabyrinthCell::StaticClass(), position));
             position->Set(position->X, position->Y + size.Y*2, position->Z);
         position->Set(position->X + size.Y*2, origin->Y, position->Z);
         GEngine->AddOnScreenDebugMessage(-1, 15.0f, FColor::Red, FString::FromInt(body[0][0]->getCell().Num()));

Here's the visual result when I send (2,2) to formGrid alt text

And when i try something like "body[0][0]->getCell()" the TMap is empty, why ?

Resolved! For some reasons, I wasn't able to access to TMap data of ALabyrinthCell because i called the function which fills this container inside BeginPlay() of ALabyrinthCell

Calling this function right after spawning the ALabyrtinthCell from the ALabyrinthBody class did the trick.
