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 get the current world from a blueprint?

So GetWorld() can be called in C++ for any UObject, but is there an equivalent in blueprint? I have some functions which take the world as an argument that I need to use but I can't find a way to get a reference to it.

Product Version: UE 4.14

Generally, what is done is too pass a Uobject* as a first parameter named "WorldContextObject", from which you can do "Getworld". You can improve your flow in blueprints to pass automatically this Uobject, by doing : UFUNCTION(BlueprintCallable, meta = (WorldContext="WorldContextObject")) static void MyFunction(UObject* WorldContextObject,...) This is what is used from most of blueprint libraries in UE4. See GameplayStatics.h or KismetSystemLibrary.h for more examples.
