This plugin is still in development and gets extended with each update, therefore the price will change as much more functions get added to the plugin.
Sorry for not updating for quite a while. We have decided to make some changes to the existing code and add a lot more new functions to the system. The next update is set for Friday, Oct 14th, and will bring also completely new documentation for BP & C++.
We thank you for all your support and patience through the development.
Variable Access Library will improve your blueprinting workflow by allowing you to create a widely modular coding structure, reducing your code to a minimum, and making it look cleaner and more organized.
All hard reference calls via “Cast To” can be replaced with this library using soft references which result in a way more performant code and lower RAM usage. Level load times will be way shorter than with hard references.
With an evergrowing library of functions, you can GET/SET variables of the supported types of any object simply by name (soft reference), but also Get All Variable Names of a Target, Execute Functions by name, and much more.
To help to debug, the plugin allows you to print error messages to the log and/or screen (which can be toggled in the project settings), with all the needed information so you can find missing references faster.
All functions are widely accessible (in C++ and blueprint)and support also replicated variables and RPC events.

added UMG Variable Types Support (Widget Elements, Textures)
Improve Array & Map Support (add new functions)
Get All Variables Name of Type
Extended Macro Library
Add Double Support (important for UE5 Floats)
Add Gameplay Tag Support
Complete Documentation and Sample Videos
Find Material/Static Mesh by Name in Content Browser
Add Data Asset Support
V 1.6 GET VAR NAMES UPDATE (released Jan 18th, 2022):
THIS UPDATE REMOVED SOME DUPLICATE FUNCTIONS, THE SAME FUNCTIONS STILL EXIST JUST IN A DIFFERENT CLASS; DOUBLE-CHECK TO ENSURE YOUR CODE WORKS, AND RECOMPILE ALL CODE!!!
-remove unused function library class
-Get All Variable Names
-Easy Transform Functions
Set Location of Transform
Set Rotation of Transform
Set Scale of Transform
-added DataTable Support
V 1.5 MAP VARIABLE SUPPORT UPDATE (released October 10th, 2021):
-added Wildcard Map Support
-added Impure Getter Function
-reorganize code by adding 4 classes (Getters, Setters, General, Impure) for cleaner code structure and easier additions
V 1.4 WILDCARD ARRAY UPDATE (released September 20th, 2021):
– added Get & Set Wildcard Array Support for all common variable types (structs are excluded and require their own function)
-> Remove & Add may not be required and can be accessed with the get function that’s why I skipped them. let me know if they are required
– Support 4.27
V 1.3 EASIER DEBUG UPDATE ( released July 10th, 2021):
-added Plugin Settings in Project Settings>Plugins>VariableAccess
added 2 bools to enable/disable Print to Log or Print to Screen for all functions

V 1.2 EVEN MORE VARIABLE SUPPORT UPDATE (released May 28th, 2021):
-10 new functions supporting new variable types:
-Updating API to new API for 4.25+ (will remove warnings if compiled by source)
