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"

Unreal Engine 4.22.2 crashes after adding C++ code.

Hello Everyone,

I have recently started using UE4 and I have an issue. I am attempting to get an object name from an object in my level. I have created a class that reports the name of the object in the LOG. I then add the class as a component of one of the chairs in the basic project template. The code is as follows

// Fill out your copyright notice in the Description page of Project Settings.

include "PositionReporter.h"

include "GameFramework/Actor.h"

// Sets default values for this component's properties UPositionReporter::UPositionReporter() { // Set this component to be initialized when the game starts, and to be ticked every frame. You can turn these features // off to improve performance if you don't need them.


// Called when the game starts void UPositionReporter::BeginPlay() { Super::BeginPlay();

 // If I comment out the line below my code runs fine
 FString ObjectName = GetOwner()->GetName();
 UE_LOG(LogTemp, Warning, TEXT("Position Reporter Active"));


// Called every frame void UPositionReporter::TickComponent(float DeltaTime, ELevelTick TickType, FActorComponentTickFunction* ThisTickFunction) { Super::TickComponent(DeltaTime, TickType, ThisTickFunction);

 // ...
