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 hide a component from the editor details?

I need a way to change the visibility of an existing UActorComponent (no transform) in the details panel. I don't want any user to touch or see at all, even when it's available in the scene. The reason why I need to do this is that I want to create UPROPERTIES in that actor component, and show them in another component instead.

I found this variable in SceneComponent.cpp

 const bool bShowInEditor = GIsEditor ? (!Owner || !Owner->IsHiddenEd()) : false;

used in shouldRender() function.

I've found anything else. Seems like a not very common feature used here. In Unity it's very common to hide components you don't want people to see or touch, for example for plugins/assets you sell.

Just FYI, I found a way to hide categories in the details view. https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/120615/hiding-a-parent-classes-uproperties.html But not whole components in the hierarchy tree.
