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"

2.Find the reference of objects(cubes) around me.

But I dont know what is the function to get reference of an object, can aybody help me? Or maybe there is better approach to this tasks?

Thank you

There are quite a few ways to find references of actors so I will just make a list

You could also expose a field using

 class AActor* SelectedActor;

and just manually set the reference this way, but it is probably not applicable for you.
