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"

Can't instantiate my custom UActorComponent from plugin. LNK2019.

I'm getting a LNK2019 error when I try to run this line of code in a pawn constructor:

 customComp = CreateDefaultSubobject<UMyCustomComponent>(TEXT("custom"));

Here is the error:

 error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "__declspec(dllimport) private: static class UClass * __cdecl UMyCustomComponent::GetPrivateStaticClass(void)"

My custom component is being imported via a plugin. It extends from UActorComponent. I can already include
MyCustomComponent.h into my pawn. I just can't instantiate it for some reason.

Product Version: UE 4.18

I deleted the Intermediate folders in both my project and plugin directory and my project all of a sudden compiles again. I tried that out because yesterday my code would compile when I commented that line in my pawn's constructor. Today it wouldn't! That told me something wonky was going on. Anyway, I'm glad it worked.
