Only available in 1.1 This function creates a texture element that can be used in the dxDraw functions

Syntax

element dxCreateTexture ( string filepath )

Required Arguments

  • filepath: The filepath of the image. (.dds images are also supported). Image files should ideally have dimensions that are a power of two, to prevent possible blurring.

Returns

Returns a texture if successful, false if invalid arguments were passed to the function.

Example

root = getRootElement()

addEventHandler( "onClientRender", root,
    function()
        if myImage then
            dxDrawImage( 100, 350, 300, 350, myImage  )
        end
    end
)

-- Use 'toggle' command to switch image on and off
addCommandHandler( "toggle",
    function()
        if not myImage then
            myImage = dxCreateTexture( "moonpig.png" )  -- Create texture
        else        
            destroyElement( myImage )                 -- Destroy texture
            myImage = nil
        end
    end
)
