# SetElementSpeed

This function allows you to set moving element speed in kph or mph units.

## Syntax

bool setElementSpeed (element theElement, [ int/string unit="kph", int speed=0 ])

### Required Arguments

• theElement: Element you want to set speed of

### Optional Arguments

NOTE: When using optional arguments, you might need to supply all arguments before the one you wish to use. For more information on optional arguments, see optional arguments.

• unit: Units in which speed should be set. This can be 1 or "mph" for mph, any other value for kph.
• speed: Speed in selected unit

## Code

NOTE: This function requires function getElementSpeed in order to work correctly.

Function source
function setElementSpeed(element, unit, speed)
local unit    = unit or 0
local speed   = tonumber(speed) or 0
local acSpeed = getElementSpeed(element, unit)
if not acSpeed or acSpeed == 0 then
return false
end
-- if true - element is valid, no need to check again
local diff = speed/acSpeed
if diff ~= diff then return false end -- if the number is a 'NaN' return false.

local x, y, z = getElementVelocity(element)
return setElementVelocity(element, x*diff, y*diff, z*diff)
end

Server-side example

This example adds command that set player vehicle speed to provided one (in predefined unit kph). Note: It doesn't care if player is driver or passenger.

local veh = getPedOccupiedVehicle(player)
if not veh then
outputChatBox("You have to sit in vehicle", player)
return
end
setElementSpeed(veh, "km/h", tonumber(speed))
end)
