OnClientKey

From Multi Theft Auto: Wiki
Revision as of 10:50, 28 April 2013 by Bass (talk | contribs)

This event triggers whenever the user presses a button on their keyboard. This event can also be used to see if the client scrolls his mousewheel.

Parameters

string button, bool pressOrRelease
  • button: This refers the button pressed.
  • pressOrRelease: This refers to whether they were pressing or releasing the key, true when pressing, false when releasing.

Source

The source of this event is the client's root element.

Example

This example will say in chatbox every time the user presses down a a key.

function playerPressedKey(button, press)
    if (press) then -- Only output when they press it down
        outputChatBox("You pressed the "..button.." key!")
    end
end
addEventHandler("onClientKey", root, playerPressedKey)

This example outputs if the client moves his mousewheel.

addEventHandler( "onClientKey", root, function(button,press) 
    -- Since mouse_wheel_up and mouse_wheel_down cant return a release, we dont have to check the press.
    if button == "mouse_wheel_up" or button == "mouse_wheel_down" then
        outputDebugString( button .. " moved." )
        return true
    end
    return false
end )
