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"

Editor empty component in case of double C++ inheritance + blueprint inheritance


In C++ I have class "Base" which is derived from AActor and contains static mesh component:

 UPROPERTY(VisibleAnywhere, BlueprintReadWrite, Category = Mesh)
 UStaticMeshComponent* ItemMesh;

In constructor:

 ItemMesh = ObjectInitializer.CreateDefaultSubobject<UStaticMeshComponent>(this, TEXT("ItemMesh"));

Also in C++ I have class "Child" that is derived from class "Base". Then I have created blueprint class "BP_Child" which is derived from class "Child". Right now everything is good and I see properties of static mesh component in blueprint editor.

But when I modified class "Base" and changed ItemMesh class to USkeletalMeshComponent, recompiled project and got back to the editor, I couldn't see any properties anymore. Editor reloading doesn't work. The only way is recreation of the blueprint class "BP_Child". Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong? What should I do to be able to view component properties in inherited blueprint class from double C++ inheritance?

Regards, Ivan

You most likely need to reparent your blueprint again to that same class e.g. to "Child", that might fix your problem as it seems that your blueprint metadata got corrupted by changing it to SkeletalMesh one..
