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"

C++ Instanced members in inherited Components

Hello everyone. I have a question about "Instanced" mambers of classes. I've created my own class, let's say, ActionComponent, then I wanted to add a member ActionBase class pointer( class ActionBase * m_actions ) and mark it as "Instanced" in UPROPERTY, so I wanted to put real objects to that field in the editor. Then I added my ActionComponent as a member to other class. The problem is that in this case I can't set a value for m_actions in the editor. I thought that maybe it's due to inheritance, but then I look at CharacterClass(which is generated by default) which have an UCameraComponent which contains AssetUserData memeber and it's looks exactly like my m_actions, but it worked well inside editor. Ok, I thought maybe assets is a some kind of special objets. BUT! The thing is that since my ActionComponent is inherited from U ActorComponent it contains AssetUserData field too, but I can't edit him inside editor. Can anybody explain me how it works?

Ok, I managed to deal with it. Looks like a bug, the thing is if I create component like this: m_actionComponent = CreateDefaultSubobject(TEXT("ActionComponent")); Everything would work perfectly. But If i'll add a space in component name: m_actionComponent = CreateDefaultSubobject(TEXT("Action Component")); It won't work anymore.
