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"

UFUNCTION Custom Parameter Names

Is it possible to specify a custom name for a parameter of a UFUNCTION that is exposed to Blueprint? For example, if I had the following function.

 UFUNCTION(BlueprintCallable)
 static void SetMyInt(int32 MyInt);

In Blueprint, this will come out with a node that has an input pin named MyInt. But what if I want that input pin to have a different name in Blueprint? Say I want it to be called MyGreatInt, but I don't want to change it in the actual C++ function itself. Is there some sort of meta specifier to do this?

Hey wilberolive-

There is a macro you can use to change the display name of your parameter for the blueprint. Using your example, using SetMyInt(UPARAM(DisplayName = "NameToBeDisplayed") int32 MyInt); will allow you to see the desired display name in the blueprint and still use MyInt in code.

Cheers
