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"

UObject overwritten and saved during runtime

Hi. I created custom asset type.


 UCLASS(BlueprintType, Blueprintable, EditInlineNew)
 class DIALOGSYSTEM_API UDialog : public UObject
     UFUNCTION(BlueprintCallable, Category = "Dialog Object")
         FName GetSpeaker(int id);
     UFUNCTION(BlueprintCallable, Category = "Dialog Object")
         FText GetText(int id);
     UFUNCTION(BlueprintCallable, Category = "Dialog Object")
         ELinkType GetType(int id);
     UFUNCTION(BlueprintCallable, Category = "Dialog Object")
         TArray <int> GetTransitionArray(int id);
     UFUNCTION(BlueprintCallable, Category = "Dialog Object")
         TArray <FTransitionConditions> GetArrayOfTransitionConditions(int id);
     UPROPERTY(EditAnywhere, Category = "My Object Properties")
         TArray <int> openedTransitionsList;
     UPROPERTY(EditAnywhere, Category = "My Object Properties")
         TArray <FLink> linkList;


 UDialogFactory::UDialogFactory(const FObjectInitializer& ObjectInitializer) : Super(ObjectInitializer)
     UE_LOG(LogTemp, Warning, TEXT("Factory construct"));
     bCreateNew = true;
     bEditAfterNew = true;
     SupportedClass = UDialog::StaticClass();
 UObject* UDialogFactory::FactoryCreateNew(UClass* Class, UObject* InParent, FName Name, EObjectFlags Flags, UObject* Context, FFeedbackContext* Warn)
     UE_LOG(LogTemp, Warning, TEXT("Factory create New"));
     auto NewObjectAsset = NewObject<UDialog>(InParent, Class, Name, Flags | RF_Transactional );
     return NewObjectAsset;


  1. In UserWidget create variable (UDialog Object Referens).

  2. Create asset of UDialog and assign it to variable (DialogContainer) in blueprint.

  3. In Blueprint called GetTransitionArray(int id)

alt text

Function GetTransitionArray(int id) change openedTransitionsList in runtime


 TArray <int> UDialog::GetTransitionArray(int id)
     switch (linkList[id].type)
     case ELinkType::LT_Phrase:
         return linkList[id].transition;
     case ELinkType::LT_Question:
         for (auto iter = linkList[id].transition.begin(); iter != linkList[id].transition.end(); ++iter)
         return openedTransitionsList;
     case ELinkType::LT_SpecialQuestion:
         return linkList[id].transition;
     case ELinkType::LT_Answer:
         return linkList[id].transition;
     return TArray <int>();

Problem: Changes made to the array (openedTransitionsList) in runtime SAVED in asset. The next time you start the array will be filled to the beginning.

Question: Why? And how to fix it? Why doesn't blueprint create copy of asset for runtime?
