Remarks

POD types refactor for porting old code:

Replace 'FLOAT' with 'float' Replace 'DOUBLE' with 'double' Replace 'INT' with 'int32' (make sure not to replace INT text in localization strings!) Replace 'UINT' with 'uint32' Replace 'DWORD' with 'uint32' (DWORD is still used in Windows platform source files) Replace 'WORD' with 'uint16' Replace 'USHORT' with 'uint16' Replace 'SWORD' with 'int16' Replace 'QWORD' with 'uint64' Replace 'SQWORD' with 'int64' Replace 'BYTE' with 'uint8' Replace 'SBYTE' with 'int8' Replace 'BITFIELD' with 'uint32' Replace 'UBOOL' with 'bool' Replace 'FALSE' with 'false' and 'TRUE' with true. Make sure any platform API uses its own bool types. For example WinAPI uses BOOL, FALSE and TRUE otherwise sometimes it doesn't work properly or it doesn't compile. Replace 'ExtractUBOOLFromBitfield' with 'ExtractBoolFromBitfield' Replace 'SetUBOOLInBitField' with 'SetBoolInBitField' Replace 'ParseUBOOL' with 'FParse::Bool' Replace 'MINBYTE', with 'MIN_uint8' Replace 'MINWORD', with 'MIN_uint16' Replace 'MINDWORD', with 'MIN_uint32' Replace 'MINSBYTE', with 'MIN_int8' Replace 'MINSWORD', with 'MIN_int16' Replace 'MAXINT', with 'MAX_int32' Replace 'MAXBYTE', with 'MAX_uint8' Replace 'MAXWORD', with 'MAX_uint16' Replace 'MAXDWORD', with 'MAX_uint32' Replace 'MAXSBYTE', with 'MAX_int8' Replace 'MAXSWORD', with 'MAX_int16' Replace 'MAXINT', with 'MAX_int32'An 8-bit unsigned integer.

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
