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"

What header do i have to include?

Hey there,

I started doing my projects in c++ so excuse me if there is an obvious answer to my question. I´ve read some answers to similar questions and i figured out that since quite a few versions the engine no longer includes every header to minimize the amount of time compiling. I try to stick to this great idea but, especially as a beginner in c++, i get stucked almost every time i try to use any U..x..Components because of missing header files. This could be easily resolved by adding the engine.h but doesn´t follow the idea of minimize the compiling time.

finally to my question:

Is there any place where i can look for names of header files that needs to be included if i use diverse components?

e.g. if i want to use the USpringArmComponent what header file do i have to include? (Just an example)

I tried to figure this out through the UE4 API Reference without useable results.

Thank you for your help in advance.
