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"

How to read .ini with values owning fields

Hello everyone,

I am implementing a code where I'm trying to read data from a custom.ini as the following: [/scripts/commands] command=(type="Skill",name="BasicAttack",label="Basic Attack",description="Execute a basic attack",skill="TestSkill")

Unfortunatelly, I've not found any way to parse the value other than FString... I can implement a logic to parse that data in a TMap, but I'm guessing if there is any built-in implementation we can use in that case.

Check how [/Script/Cascade.CascadeConfiguration] from BaseEditor.ini is made. I think You just have to make a struct:

 struct FCommand
     FString type;
     FString name;
     // ... etc.

then you need a field in your class:

 FCommand command;

Your class is:

 class UCommands : public UObject

To learn how structs in config files are parse, I think you need to check how it works in GConfig under the hood...
