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"

TArrays and blueprints

I have a couple of questions about TArrays

How do I initialize a TArray ptr ?

 TArray<AActor*>* Foo;

Right now I have

 TArray<AActor*> Foo;
 TArray<AActor*>* GetArray() { return &Foo; } //getter

How can I do it for :

 TArray<AActor*>* Foo;
 TArray<AActor*>* GetArray() { return Foo; } ///getter
 //Over here the Foo ptr is always null and I get a crash to desktop

Also following up this question, Can I make a ptr to an array available in blueprints ?

For example, I have an array of interactable actors in my ACharacter class and it tracks a list of interactable actors that it can interact with if the player is within the trigger box area of that said object. Can I get this array in blueprints to display on my HUD (Blueprint Widget) or do a raycast and see if the player is looking at the interactable object and if exist in the list of interactable actors?

Example would be a door with a trigger box and the player can open/close it when inside that trigger box, If there is a note on the door, and I want to player to read that note on the door instead of opening or closing the door, I would like to trace what the player is looking at and determine the outcome of it.

Thanks for your time.
