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"

Could I get some help on using UTextRenderComponent::SetTextMaterial?

Hello all.

The common functions of UTextRenderComponent were easy to follow but this one is a little sketchy to me. How do use SetTextMaterial() ?

As far as I understand it (after reading the docs and trying to debug actual calls in the editor), it has something to do with instancing a UPrimitiveComponent and using its CreateDynamicMaterialInstance() function to set the the first parameter of SetTextMaterial(). (Tentatively) Using something like:

 UPrimitiveComponent c = PCIP.SomeCreationFunction<UPrimitiveComponent>(this, NULL);
 Title->SetTextMaterial(c.CreateDynamicMaterialInstance(<some reference>, NULL));

How can I a create such component (I tried a PCIP.CreateDefaultSubobject() call but the compiler rejects it) ?

Once I have this, How can I reference an existing material by name like

"Material'/Game/Textures/TextMaterialNoShine.TextMaterialNoShine' so that it returns an int32 for the first parameter CreateDynamicMaterialInstance() ?

Any help appreciated.
