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"

[Closed] Plugin react on the user selecting an actor

Hello UDN team,

how can I make my plugin react on the user selecting an actor (e.g by picking in the viewport or selecting in the world outliner)?

I know how to access the current selection using:

 GEditor->GetSelectedActors()

but I need this as a delegate or virtual to be able to do things when the user picks an actor.

Thanks a bunch, Stephan

Got it!

Your header:

 class YourClass {
    ....
    UFUNCTION()
    void on_selection_changed(UObject *n_object);
 }

In your impl:

 GEditor->GetSelectedSet(AActor::StaticClass())->SelectObjectEvent.AddRaw(this, &YourClass::on_selection_changed);


Function will be called when user selects an actor.

Cheers and sorry for the noise....

Stephan
