Unresolved external symbols in Slate

#InputCoreTypes.h

Try including this in your .h file!

//Input
#include "InputCoreTypes.h"

also make sure your new build cs has this

{
		PublicDependencyModuleNames.AddRange(new string[] { "Core", "CoreUObject", "Engine", "InputCore" });
	}

I’m currently trying to move my slate hud over from the beta version to the new version. I think I’ve gone through and updated all the necessary code (Though there’s a bunch of style stuff seemingly missing) but when I try to compile I get a bunch of lnk2019 errors which complain about FKey functions, but all I have in my code is two instances of this line:

if(MouseEvent.GetEffectingButton() != EKeys::LeftMouseButton)

Does anyone have an idea where these errors are coming from?

Hi Ineni,

Check to see if “InputCore” is in your PrivateDependencyModuleNames in the Build.cs file for the project.

Cheers,
Nick (Epic Games)

Awesome, thanks Rama!

Thanks for that Nick, out of interest, is there a change log somewhere I could look at?

Not really - but keep the questions coming. I’ll try and help where possible. Soon this should much less of an issue because github will mirror all of the individual perforce checkins so you’ll see comments and such :smiley:

Works for me. Thanks!
