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"

Variable Icons are different.

I'm trying to figure out what the difference between the two icons on the left of each of these variables signify. They're both referenced to empty widgets. I'm very curious why they look different. https://i.imgur.com/iytUW6j.png

The lower one is widget. lower one has has default object icon but it can be any class.

Color is most impotent as it defines variable type, but object related types like object reference and class reference as well as soft reference version of them may also different icon shape depending on class of object you pick as you can assign one to the class in C++. You can see those shapes when you pick variable type as well as in class viewer (Window->Development Tools->Class Viewer) and blueprint icon itself depending what base class you picked(but it may have different icon). It simply there to help you identify what object reference type you dealing with.

You can also have different shape on array variables, array, set and map. map even have dual color icon indicating type of key and value types of the map.
