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 make an ActorComponent that handles user input

I would like to make components that control different aspects of the player input. The way I have been doing it is creating ActorComponents that have a method that takes a UInputComponent (much like actors do) and calling this manually in the actors SetupPlayerInputComponent method.

This works, but requires me to add the components in code rather than in a blueprint. What is the correct way to achieve something like this? Ideally, so the method is called automatically on all components within the actor?

Would it be suitable to derive the components from UInputComponent and just use the this pointer within the InitializeComponent method? This would have the limitation that the components cannot be scene components.
