Resource:Blipstreamer/setBlipStreamable

From Multi Theft Auto: Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This function enables a blip to automatically stream according to the radius

Syntax

bool setBlipStreamable ( element blip, bool streamingEnabled [, float radius = 500 ] )

Required Arguments

  • blip: The blip in which you wish to enable/disable streaming for
  • streamingEnabled: A boolean, where true enables streaming, and false disables it (restoring to previous dimension)

Optional Arguments

  • radius: The maximum distance for players to be within for the blip to be visible. The minimum value is 180 (Radius of the radar itself). Specifying lower will mean the blip only shows when within the radar's visibility.

Returns

Returns true if streaming was enabled/disabled successfully, or false if bad arguments were provided

Example

This function makes all vehicles in the server have a streaming blip.

function addVehicleBlips()
	for i,vehicle in ipairs(getElementsByType"vehicle") do
		for k,element in ipairs(getAttachedElements(source)) do
			if getElementType(element) == "blip" then
				destroyElement(element)
			end
		end
		--Create a new blip and make it streamable
		local blip = createBlipAttachedTo ( vehicle, 0, 1 )
		call(getResourceFromName"blipstreamer","setBlipStreamable",blip,true,10)
	end
end
addEventHandler ( "onResourceStart", getResourceRootElement(getThisResource()), addVehicleBlips )
