Return Arrays of the Correct Subclass Type in Blueprints

Say for example you’re developing a pets game and you have a class AAnimal, and subclasses ADog and ACat.

You’ve made a function TArray<AAnimal*> GetAnimalsByClass(TSubclassOf<AAnimal> ClassType) that returns an array of all the animal instances of a given type.

Normally in Blueprints if you called this function, you would be returned an array of `AAnimal instances, and before using them you would have to cast them to the animal you expected. Not the end of the world, but kind of annoying

The undocumented meta property DeterminesOutputType lets you fix that, and return an array of “pre-cast” instances in Blueprints, removing the need for casting each element to the expected class type.

UFUNCTION(BlueprintCallable, meta=(DeterminesOutputType = "ClassType"))
TArray<AAnimal*> GetAnimalsByClass(TSubclassOf<AAnimal> ClassType) const;
