I want to load a static mesh asychronously, when using TSoftObjectPtr, an compile error occurs:
error C2227: left of ‘->Get’ must point to class/struct/union/generic type
UStaticMesh* StMesh = StmPtr->Get();//error C2227
Any suggestion here? thank you so much!
The TSoftObjectPtr is an object that points to your static mesh. Using → accesses your mesh, using a period accesses the pointer itself, which you want, since it’s the pointer that has the Get function.
Thank you for your aswner, but another error occurs:
error C2228: left of ‘.Get’ must have class/struct/union
UStaticMesh* StMesh = StmPtr.Get();//error C2228
I just checked your code, apparently that way of constructing a TSoftObjectPtr isn’t valid in the first place and the compiler thinks ithe StmPtr(FSoftObjectPath(String)) is a function call instead of a constructor of an object.
Generally, it seems like you need one or the other (TSoftObjectPtr or FSoftObjectPath), not both. Either use
TSoftObjectPtr<UStaticMesh> StmPtr = Mesh; or
You are right. I have changed my code to:
UStaticMesh StMesh = nullptr;
FSoftObjectPtr MeshPtr = FSoftObjectPtr(FSoftObjectPath(Filepath));
StMesh = Cast<UStaticMesh>(MeshPtr.Get());
No errors now.
