DefaultToInstanced - EditInlineNew class / Instanced - EditAnywhere property : edits don't work

Hello,

I had to implement some states for my character, and I did the same guys working on Unreal Tournament did for the weapon states.

I have a state class hierarchy, and the base class has the following attributes:


 UCLASS( Abstract, DefaultToInstanced, EditInlineNew, Within = BBCharacter )
 class UBBCharacterState : public UObject

I have several states inheriting from this base class.

I declare them in my character class like this:


 UPROPERTY( Instanced, EditAnywhere, Category = "States" )
 class UBBCharacterStateMoving * MovingState;
 
 UPROPERTY( Instanced, EditAnywhere, Category = "States" )
 class UBBCharacterStateJumping * JumpingState;

And instantiate them like that:


 MovingState = PCIP.CreateDefaultSubobject< UBBCharacterStateMoving >( this, TEXT( "StateMoving" ) );
 JumpingState = PCIP.CreateDefaultSubobject< UBBCharacterStateJumping >( this, TEXT( "StateJumping" ) );

I have declared some properties on the jumping state which I would like to edit in the editor:


 UCLASS()
 class UBBCharacterStateMoving : public UBBCharacterStateNoBall
 {
     GENERATED_BODY()
 
 public:
 
     UBBCharacterStateMoving();
 
     UPROPERTY( EditAnywhere, Category = "ActionTrigger" )
     float ActionTriggerMinimalDotProduct;
 };

Everything works fine, except that when I update in the editor the value of ActionTriggerMinimalDotProduct, it keeps its default value I have set in the constructor of the class.

What are the magic keywords I should use to get this working?

Thanks!
