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"

Is it Possible to Add a Component from a blueprint Editor Function?

I'm trying to set up a blueprint that can add X number of child actors to an actor in the Level. The function effectively checks an actor array variable and creates a child actor for every "Not Valid" entry in that array (it then assigns the resulting actor to the array index).

I see the Actor get created and assigned to the array, but the component never appears in the details window. Furthermore, if I move the base actor whatsoever, the new actors disappear. I've had the same experience with Static Mesh components as well.

Am I missing a step needed to properly Add Components while in the Editor, such as an invalidate or finalize function I need to call? Or is the functionality just flat out not supported?

Product Version: UE 4.19
