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"

Customise details panel in my own blueprint component

Hey guys,

I am developing a plugin for the unreal engine and I have a problem with the details panel.
In my plugin I've created an own blueprint component in the ThirdPersonCharacter and in the details panel of this component the future user has to specify some bones. As you can see below the current state is that the future developer has to write the bonenames in a box, without checking if the names are right or wrong.
For the future developer, who is using my plugin, it would be better if he could have a list of all bones from which he can choose the bones he wants (This is at the category "Sockets" implemented, as you can see below). Do you think this is possible?

Thank you for your answers!!

Yes, this will be possible but it's not straight forward.

You'll need to become very familiar with Slate to create the UI, as well as spending quite a lot of time looking through the Engine source in order to work out how to populate your lists etc.

I've only ever done this on quite a simple level (extending the custom graph samples) so I can't really offer loads of advice, but these links are a good start:
