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"

C++ LineTraceMultiByObjectType

Hi. I have set up a blueprint that I am trying to replicate in C++. I can do the trace fine, but I'm struggling to get Hit information from the array as shown in the blueprint. Without it I cant use FHitResult.GetActor() or anything.

alt text

here is the code I have so far

 TArray<FHitResult> HitResults;
     FHitResult HitData(ForceInit);
     FCollisionObjectQueryParams ObjectList;
     ObjectList.AddObjectTypesToQuery(ECC_Pawn);
     FCollisionQueryParams TraceParams = FCollisionQueryParams(FName(TEXT("TraceParams")), false, this);
 
 
 //Do trace
         GetWorld()->LineTraceMultiByObjectType(HitResults, Start, End, ObjectList, TraceParams);
             
                //For each loop
         for (int i = 0; i < HitResults.Num(); i++) 
         {
             
             if (HitData.GetActor()->IsA(AEnemy::StaticClass()))
             {
 
                 AEnemy* enemy = Cast<AEnemy>(HitData.GetActor());
 
                 if (!enemy) return;
 
                 enemy->Damage(10);
             }
         }

Thanks in advance

Are you getting a Crash or something? If so Please tell what it says.

Try this instead the foor loop:

 UE_LOG(LogTemp,Warning,TEXT("MyTrace Num Hits: %d"), HitResults.Num() ); // Will appear in your Logs just for debuging if hit anything at all
              for (FHitResult& HitData : HitResults) 
              {
                  
                  if (HitData.GetActor()) // pointer check
                  {
      
                      AEnemy* enemy = Cast<AEnemy>(HitData.GetActor()); // Type Check
      
                      if (!enemy) return; // Pointer Check
      
                      enemy->Damage(10);
                  }
              }

Aside from that make sure GetWorld() is valid everything else looks fine to me.

ah I actually just fixed this but thanks for the reply!

Basically, I had my array of FHitresults called "HitResults" and a FHitResult variable called HitData.

I just needed to add the following line so Hitdata was fed the information from HitResults on every iteration of the loop.

HitData = HitResults[i];

Caused my game to crash before, but this fixed it. Cant see it being a problem if I extend to multiple enemy types either.

Unless I'm missing something? Just means I will have to cast to every enemy type and declare its ->Damage() function.
