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"

while i havent used it myself, from what ive seen it will expose a variable to be shown on a spawn actor from class node. so if you wanted to spawn in a actor and immediately set a variable in that actor then you could use the expose for spawn.

Expose on Spawn is very useful when you want to initialize an internal variable before BeginPlay is called, and helps keep blueprints cleaner.

It does nothing for C++ (AFAIK).

It will appear as an input node when you try to construct such object from its class, such variable has to be also Instance Editable.
