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"

UProperty Components showing up oddly in the details panel

I don't know if its something I do wrong, but my UProperty components I create in C++ always show up weird in the details panels. I don't know how best to explain it, so here's a picture!

Oddly enough, my camera component doesn't have the same problem - it already shows up like the panel on the right. Just the scene component does this in this instance, though I often get this problem with any components added in C++.

What can I do so that when I select my component, it looks like the panel on the right, not the one in the middle of the image?

Dont set components as EditAnywhere, set them as VisibleAnywhere or VisibleDefaultsOnly instead. When you set a component as EditAnywhere you are meaning that the pointer should be set to other things, VisibleAnywhere means "this points to this component. the pointer cannot change, but the component properties can".

This is only for Components, other UObject types you should set them with the EditAnywhere or EditDefaultsOnly flag.
