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"

Will a UPROPERTY within a non-UPROPERTY member work?

My question is probably best explained with very little code:

 stuct FMyGCWrapper
     UObject* StoredObject;

The above struct only has 1 purpose: to store the referenced object that would otherwise not be a UPROPERTY into a UPROPERTY (I would also implement a constructor that takes a UObject* and override the operator== for use below, but lets skip this for the example).

 class USomeClass : public UObject

     // Static UPROPERTY isn't supported.
     // Will the UPROPERTY in FMyGCWrapper properly be recognized or not since
     // the referencing variable isn't marked as UPROPERTY?
     static TArray<FMyGCWrapper> s_References;
     virtual void BeginPlay() override { s_References.Add(FMyGCWrapper(this)); }
     virtual void BeginDestroy() override { s_References.Remove(FMyGCWrapper(this)); }

Now my question: will this prevent garbage collection of all objects stored in s_References if they are not hard referenced anywhere else? If not, is there a way to store hard references to UObjects in non UPROPERTY fields? There is no TObjectPtr or something like that, only weak pointers (talking about TWeakObjectPtr).
