This event is triggered when the model of an element is changed using setElementModel.


int oldModel, int newModel
  • oldModel: The model of the element beforehand.
  • newModel: The new model of the element.


The source of this event is the element that changed its model

Cancel Effect

This event doesn't support cancellation. Use setElementModel with the old value to reverse.


This example sends a message to players when their model changes telling them what the model ID is and was.

function informPlayerOnModelChange(oldModel, newModel)
    if ( getElementType(source) == "player" ) then -- Make sure the element is a player
        outputChatBox("Model ID changing from: "..oldModel.." to: ".. newModel, source, 0, 255, 0) -- Message for player
addEventHandler("onElementModelChange", root, informPlayerOnModelChange) -- Bind the event to every element
