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"

Difference between PostInitProperties and PostEditChangeProperty?


As the title says, I'm pretty much just wondering what the difference between the two functions PostInitProperties() and PostEditChangeProperty().

Would be great if someone could clearify :) Thanks in advance.

PostEditChangeProperty only gets called when the property is modified "externally." It is useful for when a property is changed in the editor or by another object. PostInitProperties is called after the constructor but before BeginPlay whether you are playing in the editor or in a packaged game. You use this to do initialization that is reliant on your properties being fully initialized but it is only called once at the beginning of the object's initialization.
