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"

Array of a custom Enum as output for an interface function

Hi there,

My goal is to use an array of a custom enum (types) as ouput for an interface function.

However, when I try to do this the engine gives me the following message:

Error Message:

BlueprintEditorCompileResults:Error: Error Default value '' for Types is invalid: ''' is not a valid enumerant of '''

My enum is coded in c++ like this:


enum MyType { TP_Float UMETA(DisplayName = "Float"), TP_Int UMETA(DisplayName = "Int"), TP_String UMETA(DisplayName = "String"), TP_Bool UMETA(DisplayName = "Bool"), };

The setupt of the interface function:

Im working in UE 4.2.1

Trial and error

I did also test it with an enum which I created in the editor (content browser -> misc -> enumeration), got the same result.

Hi SpEXyPHe,

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I tested this in 4.2.1 and was easily able to see the behavior that you described. I also tried doing this in our latest internal build of the Engine, and the issue did not occur there. It looks like a fix for this issue has already been put in place and will be available in a future version of the Engine, though I am not sure exactly which version will contain the fix.

Have a great day!
