Using Enumerations in Blueprints

In this course, you’ll learn how to use Enumerations in the Blueprint visual scripting system, starting with the basics through to more complex and useful real-world applications.

Overview

Make your Unreal Engine projects more flexible, general purpose, and reusable using Enumerations in Blueprint! Enumerations are used to give names to integer values. A basic game menu state can be represented as names and programmed as integer numbers, for example (0= main menu, 1 = game, 2 = pause, 3 = game over etc).

In this course, author Kevin Lyle gives you a comprehensive look at using Enumerations, starting with the basics and taking you through more complex and useful real-world applications.

You will learn how to create a solution to allow the first-person character to interact with static meshes and lighting in a scene and control their reactions based on the value of an Enumeration.
 

You will learn how to:

  • Create Enumeration assets for any use case.
  • Use new and existing Enumerations to simplify building functionality.
  • Create Blueprints which are easy to edit when needed.
  • Efficiently add functionality by making more with less.
  • Change Blueprint execution flow using select and switch nodes in Blueprints.​​​​​​​
