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"

Data Types C# -> C++, Managed DLL import

Hi guys,

I am currently working on using a Managed .NET dll being imported within my Unreal Project.

Everything is going fine though I am having some difficulties with return types.

So the signature of the function I'm calling from my DLL looks like this:

 static byte[] FuncName() {

I'm properly getting the function within unity though I'm having trouble figuring out the type that UnrealEngine can work with.

Things I've tried:

 TArray<uint8> array //(crashes on function call, improper return type)
 uint8* array //(crashes on accessing the variable. i.e. : sizeof(array) causes crash.

I've also attempted to change my signature to:

 static unsafe byte* FuncName() {

though admittedly I am unfamiliar with all of C#'s unsafe rules so I'm probably marshaling the array into byte* incorrectly.

If this made sense to you, or you've been in a similar situation and have a solution, please help me out here!

I've been smashing my head against this for a few hours and can't for the life of me figure it out. (at least without some sleep ;) )

Thanks for any and all help, -Paul
