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"

Best way to implement event handler chains in C++

So I've been wondering about the best, blueprint-friendly way to implement event handling with bubbling & priorities. Most of what's possible with delegates is fine, however the blueprint-friendly version (DECLARE_DYNAMIC_MULTICAST_DELEGATE) doesn't really know anything about consumers as it only does broadcasting. And it can't have return values either.

I've looked briefly at the Message Bus and Messaging in general, but not quite sure if either support the scenario I'm looking for. I could always roll my own solution, just wanted to know if there was anything already available before I start hacking away...

Requirements:

  • Event bubbling, i.e. if an event is handled by one consumer then it doesn't propagate up to the next.

  • Handler priority: handler with prio 1 gets called first, followed by the rest

Is the Message Bus and the Messaging framework more of a network thing, or would that be the right place to start? (I'm not looking for C++ advice)

Cheers, Dave
