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"

C++ - BlueprintSpawnableComponent vs CreateDefaultSubobject Which is better?

i just started learning c++ for Unreal

now i came up with this situation: You have for example "MovementComponent" and you want place it as a component in your "Character" then i saw two ways of doing it

1) Create protected variable MovementComponent then set it in the constructor of the character like:

 MovementComponent= CreateDefaultSubobject<UMovementComponent>(FName("MovementComponent"));

So you use the method CreateDefaultSubobject

2) Add on the MovementComponent.h file inside the UCLASS() this:

 UCLASS(ClassGroup = (Custom), meta = (BlueprintSpawnableComponent))

And then just go to your character and click add component and you will find the Component.

Now i wondered which one is better qua performance and features One thing i know is with method 2 you also have is as a variable in your character blueprint

Edit: And with one should i use??
