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"

[Request/Bug] Switch on String only allows default values of 0 1 2, it would be nice to set them!

Dear Friends at Epic,

The current BP node Switch on String

would be infinitely more useful for me if I could do the following

  1. right click and add a pin, default value appears (0,1,2,3,4)

  2. I then right click on the added pin, and can type in a string to use instead of 0, 2, 3 4

That would be so useful!

Please check out current state of Switch on String if you don't see my point

It would be an awesome addition

and I actually really could use it for my current project


PS: here's a pic of what I mean

Hey Rama,

Similar to what Andrew said, you should be able to change the names of the output pins in the details pane, which should allow you the customization you are looking for in regards to specific pins. Is this what you are looking for (see image)?

I'm working from memory here, but can't you change the names of the pins in the Pin Options section for the node (as seen in the bottom left of your screenshot)?

oh wow that does work!

Maximum User Friendliness

But based on the fact that I had to post this to figure that out, I can highly encourage adding a right click option for maximum usability / user friendliness

but yes that does work, thanks for the info!

Thanks Rama. I've added a task to our database to add right-click support.
