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"

Switch Statements

I don't know if this is a question or a suggestion, so I'll ask it like a question as that's more likely. So while I was working on a very basic game I came to a point in the logic where my first thought was to add a switch statement. The problem became that is no "Switch" node in Blueprint. I guess you could use a "Select" node and an enumerator, but that seemed like a lot of work for what just became an "IF, Else IF, Else" statement made with "Branch" nodes. So my question becomes, is there a true "Switch" node that I'm missing? Because if I was doing something larger, like the classic "Input a number and the program outputs the associated month" that is generally used to teach switches, Else IF statements get a bit long. "Select" nodes with enumerators still don't work the same as it still requires the logic before the node to figure out the right output. If there is not, then I would like to make a suggestion for a "Switch" node.

Hi LegoNinja39,

There is indeed a Switch node in Blueprints; you can base it off of Int, Name, String, or Enum values.

Ok thanks! Don't know why I've never seen it nor it ever popped-up in my searches. It would be nice to have switches that could make use of floats though.
