Header file member definitions...

Hi, what’s the purpose of the automatically created header file having two “public:” areas of member definitions? Like so


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

#pragma once

#include "GameFramework/Actor.h"
#include "MyActor.generated.h"

UCLASS()
class TRICKCANNON_API AMyActor : public AActor
{
	GENERATED_BODY()
	
public:	
	// Sets default values for this actor's properties
	AMyActor();

protected:
	// Called when the game starts or when spawned
	virtual void BeginPlay() override;

public:	
	// Called every frame
	virtual void Tick(float DeltaTime) override;
};

Are the same? Can function definitions be put in either one and work all the same? Can one of them be deleted?

Thanks

I don’t know why the template is written in that way but you can move things around as you want.



public:     
    // Sets default values for this actor's properties 
    AMyActor(); 

    // Called every frame 
    virtual void Tick(float DeltaTime) override;

protected: 
    // Called when the game starts or when spawned 
    virtual void BeginPlay() override;     


Or:



public:     
    // Sets default values for this actor's properties 
    AMyActor(); 

    // Called every frame 
    virtual void Tick(float DeltaTime) override;

    // Called when the game starts or when spawned 
    virtual void BeginPlay() override;     


Just remember the rules of the protection levels:

Public: any class can access.
Protected: classes derived from this class can access.
Private: only this class can access.

Gotcha, thank you. Wasn’t sure if I was going to upset the UHT by doing stuff like that.
