This function reloads the ACL's and the ACL groups from the ACL XML file. All ACL and ACL group elements are invalid after a call to this and should not be used anymore.


bool aclReload ()

OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Note: This function is a static function underneath the ACL class.
Method: ACL.reload(...)


Returns true if the XML was successfully reloaded from the file, false or nil if the XML was invalid, didn't exist or could not be loaded for some other reason.


This example allows an admin to reload the ACL by typing "/reloadACL".

function reloadACL ( source, command )
-- Check if they're an admin...
	if ( isObjectInACLGroup ( "user." .. getAccountName ( getPlayerAccount ( source )), aclGetGroup ( "Admin" ) ) ) then
		local reload = aclReload() -- Reload the ACL
			if ( reload ) then -- Check it was reloaded successfully
				outputChatBox ( "ACL was successfully reloaded.", source, 255, 0, 0 ) -- If so, output it
			else -- If not, output it (line below)
				outputChatBox ( "An unknown error occured. Please check the ACL file exists.", source, 255, 0, 0 )
	else -- If they're not an admin, output it (below)
		outputChatBox ( "You must be an admin to use this command!", source, 255, 0, 0 )
addCommandHandler ( "reloadACL", reloadACL )
