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 with template type does not compile

I get the error "Unrecognized type 'template' - type must be a UCLASS, USTRUCT or UENUM" when I attempt to use a template type on my UFUNCTION.

This is the function:

     UFUNCTION(BlueprintCallable, Category = "Bugfix")
     template<typename T>
     static inline T SetArrayElement(TArray<T>& Array, uint32 Index, T ArrayElement);

It compiles correctly if I remove the UFUNCTION macro, but I was trying to test if I can circumvent a bug that I get with arrays in blueprint by using C++, so I need to keep that part.

I read something about using the Header Tool to circumvent a similar issue, but I actually do not know how to use it and cannot find any instructions online.

I did some research and found in the past Epic said that UFUNCTION() does not support the template type.


Here is a workaround for using wildcard pins. This sounds like circumventing the header tool that you were referring to:


Also, it looks like you are able to use the template type without UFUNCTION in C++ (not blueprints):
