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"

float FJsonObject::GetNumberField returns wrong values


It seems that float FJsonObject::GetNumberField returns wrong values. It's not always wrong, but maybe every two numbers in the 16842749 area.

I can reproduce it very easily with the following code. numberFloat and numberDouble should mean 16842749 in both cases, but the float version is different.

 FString jsonDocument(TEXT("{\"Id\":16842749}"));
 TSharedPtr<FJsonObject> JsonObject = MakeShareable(new FJsonObject());
 TSharedRef< TJsonReader<> > JsonReader = TJsonReaderFactory<>::Create(jsonDocument);
 if (FJsonSerializer::Deserialize(JsonReader, JsonObject) && JsonObject.IsValid())
     float numberFloat = JsonObject->GetNumberField(FString(TEXT("Id")));
     double numberDouble = JsonObject->GetNumberField(FString(TEXT("Id")));
     GEngine->AddOnScreenDebugMessage(-1, 15.0f, FColor::Yellow, 
         FString::Printf(TEXT("Id float: %f\nId double: %f"),
             numberFloat, numberDouble));

My bad, Unreal only implements the double version. It's a float issue.

VaRest cast the double to float, so I guess the problem is from VaRest that uses floats when it should use double.
