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"

UObject Pointers In Containers

Are all UObjects subject to being "trivially relocated" or just ones that are allocated as part of a collection?

My situation is that I have several UObjects that implement an interface and I want to have a std::unordered_set (or even a TSet) that objects use to register their existence and implementation of this interface.

The UObjects themselves are reference counted via TSharedPtr elsewhere, and will remove themselves from the unordered_set in their destructor. I do not want this Set to count as a ref on the object - they remove themselves from the Set when they are deleted.

I've been reading about how the UE4 collections assume the objects they contain are trivially relocatable. I believe in this case, since the object that the set is storing is a c++ pointer (memory address), and that itself is trivially relocatable, then I should be fine. Is this correct?
