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"

TMaps of TMaps not working

Hello everybody,

I'm trying to create a Dictonary for my game:

and so I need TMap> s; to work

and it does work fine.

However when I try and initalise

Seeds = SetupSeeds();

It gives me the following error message:

Error 2 error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol "public: static class TMap >,class FDefaultSetAllocator,struct TDefaultMapKeyFuncs >,0> > MapTest::Seeds" (?Seeds@MapTest@@2V?$TMap@HV?$TMap@VFString@@V1@VFDefaultSetAllocator@@U?$TDefaultMapKeyFuncs@VFString@@V1@$0A@@@@@VFDefaultSetAllocator@@U?$TDefaultMapKeyFuncs@HV?$TMap@VFString@@V1@VFDefaultSetAllocator@@U?$TDefaultMapKeyFuncs@VFString@@V1@$0A@@@@@$0A@@@@@A) E:\Wen Project\InventoryTests\Intermediate\ProjectFiles\MapTest.cpp.obj InventoryTests

It's not the map-of-maps that's failing, but the fact you have declared a static (Seeds) but not defined it. You need this in your .cpp file:

 TMap<int, TMap<FString, FString>> MapTest::Seeds;

Hope this helps,
