How can I add a Material to Procedural Mesh?

I have followed the Procedural Mesh Generation tutorial on the wiki. Now I was wondering how I would go about setting it up that it can accept a material. Are there any places I should be looking in the source for an example?


well first of all you need UVs

I wrote up the code here:


setting the material itself is easy!

I cannot believe I am going to admit this, but here goes. I had that thread open in one of my tabs, and for some reason it did not go past the picture of the generated mesh. Maybe it required a refresh… I don’t know. But either way thank you so much for all the work, and for sharing. This community has a very approachable feel to it, which is awesome.

I have one more question, and please let me know if I should ask it in a separate question. How do I get “TheMaterial”. After adding the UVs now my procedural “Quad” in my case is showing the checker board texture. But I cannot change the texture in the editor. Being that I only want one material on all the quads I create it would be ok if I cannot change them in the editor, but I would like to be able to create the material in the editor, then assign it in code (or BP).
Edit: I am going to create a new question as it is only fair and I believe I can word it in a way that it might be more helpful to others searching for similar info.
