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++ SetMaterial file error

So I'm trying to set a material but the following line keeps causing the engine to crash and return a file not found error.

static ConstructorHelpers::FObjectFinder DefaultMaterial(TEXT("Material'/Game/TestMat.TestMat'"));

I've tried changing the line to

static ConstructorHelpers::FObjectFinder DefaultMaterial(TEXT("Material'/Users/Shared/UnrealEngine/4.14/Engine/Content/EditorMaterials/GridMaterial'"));

but that also returns the same error. I guess I don't understand from the documentation how exactly to call a file in a project from c++.

My TestMat material is just a basic material in my games content folder. Any help with this would be much appreciated!
