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"

Custom event C++ -> Blueprint via component

I've looked through the forum and didn't find the answer. I want to call a custom event from C++ to blueprints but the event is called on component.

Example from other thread ( https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/62218/how-do-i-create-a-custom-event-in-c.html )

UFUNCTION(BlueprintImplementableEvent, Category = "DmgSystem") void TakeDmg(int32 Damage);

works if I make this on an actor. But I want to have the same on ActorComponent ( SceneComponent in my case ) and in this case, I simply don't see it in the editor. Do I need to do something extra to get events from components?

I would use a (Multicast) Delegate for this from blueprints you can bind a custom event to this which will fire whenever you fire the Delegate from C++ with Broadcast()

This works, thanks!

Is this a recommended way to go? Sounds a bit hacky that simple BlueprintImplementableEvent doesn't work.
