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"

Constructor Helpers::FObjectFinder is triggering a breakpoint

Following some examples I've seen on these forums/answerhub. Trying to get a reference to a material from the content browser via:

 static ConstructorHelpers::FObjectFinder<UMaterial> Material_Red(TEXT("MaterialInstanceConstant'/Game/Materials/Red.Red'"));

(This code is being called from a method on my ACharacter subclass

But for some reason this is triggering a break point in ConstructorHelpers.h at this point:

 struct FObjectFinder
 {
     T* Object;
     FObjectFinder(const TCHAR* ObjectToFind)
     {
         CheckIfIsInConstructor(ObjectToFind);
 >>        FString PathName(ObjectToFind); // Breakpoint here
         StripObjectClass(PathName,true);

         Object = ConstructorHelpersInternal::FindOrLoadObject<T>(PathName);
         ValidateObject( Object, PathName, ObjectToFind );
     }
     bool Succeeded()
     {
         return !!Object;
     }
 };


Any clue as to what is the problem?

I have the same problem. It seems that you can't use Constructor Helpers outside of UObject.,I have the same problem. It seems that you can't use Constructor Helpers outside of UObject. So if you using pure c++ in parts of your game tough luck i guess.

While not completely solving the problem, it seems at least part of the solution is this: Calls to FObjectFinder must be made in a class's constructor.
