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"

Calling a class constructor in an automation test prevents me from opening my project

I've been trying to open my project, and it consistently crashes at 79%.

This is the most relevant part of the log file that I have:

I've already tried deleting my Saved and Intermediate folders, restarting my computer, ,regenerating visual studio project files, and rebuilding the project from inside visual studio. None of those have worked. I also can't revert to a previous version using source control, since I only back up the Source folder. However, I do have a previous version of the Source folder that contains code that didn't make the project crash.

EDIT: I now know that the problem is this automation test, which simply calls the constructor of my Grid class

 #include "Grid.h"
 #include "AutomationTest.h"
 IMPLEMENT_SIMPLE_AUTOMATION_TEST(FConstructionTest, "GridTest.Grid.Constructor Test", EAutomationTestFlags::EditorContext | EAutomationTestFlags::SmokeFilter)
 bool FConstructionTest::RunTest(const FString& Parameters)
     //Construct a AGrid object. When this line is uncommented, my project fails to open
     //AGrid TestGrid;
     //TODO: Stuff
     return true;

The source code of the AGrid class can be seen here. This class is a superclass that is used to create square grids and hex grids. Also, the same problem of calling the constructor applies to any class that inherits from AGrid:


Commenting out the line which calls the constructor of AGrid allows me to open my project again, but it also means I can't run tests on my classes. Is there something I'm missing in my code?
