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"

Mesh defined in C++ not accessible in child blueprint

I've defined a static mesh in my c++ character class


     UPROPERTY(EditAnywhere, BlueprintReadWrite, Category = "Model")
         UStaticMeshComponent* PlayerMesh;



     PlayerMesh = CreateDefaultSubobject<UStaticMeshComponent>(TEXT("Mesh"));

This code allows for the mesh to be set via editor:

alt text

, however I created a child blueprint class and in that class the mesh could not be set. alt text There is not even a section for the mesh to be. I thought initially because I did not have the mesh set to BlueprintReadWrite, however the including of the tag in the uproperty did not change the outcome. How do I fix this problem?

Try to use VisibleAnywhere instead of EditAnywhere.

Yeah that fixed it although I wasn't able to edit in the full blueprint editor just the data only editor. Thanks this was giving me a big headache!
