Example

This example lets a player ban anyone if he has ACL rights.

--Add the "ban" command handler
-- Example with the player
function banPlayerCommand ( theClient, commandName, bannedName, reason )

	-- Give the player a nice error if he doesn't have rights
	if ( hasObjectPermissionTo ( theClient, "function.banPlayer" ) ) then
		--Get player element from the name
		local bannedPlayer = getPlayerFromNick ( bannedName )

		--Ban the player
		banPlayer ( bannedPlayer, theClient, reason )
		outputChatBox ( "ban: " .. bannedName .. " successfully banned", theClient )

	else
		outputChatBox ( "ban: You don't have enough permissions", theClient )
	end

end
addCommandHandler ( "ban", banPlayerCommand )

-- Example function with the root element. Here you would pass a player element to the function.
function banCheater(theCheater)
	banPlayer(theCheater, getRootElement(), "You are banned because of cheating.")
end
