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"

How to set asset property by asset name

Hi! Lets say I have asset (mesh) called "Switch_A" and "Switch_B".

I would like to get this name in construction script of the BP for these objects and depending on the name of those, set another asset to them correctly. E.g. correct animation (say there are two animations Switch_A_on, Switch_B_on).

Basically, I would like to parse string name of the asset and do some logic based on this string.

Before you say it should be two classes, I know that. Only the logic I am implementing uses same naming convention as the asset name, so it seems redundant to hardcode the string prefix I could get from the asset name.

Thanks for the help.
