Please use hasObjectPermissionTo instead.

This function can be used to check if the player can use a function, based on their current access level. Access levels for functions are stored in the server's config file. Use this if you want to prevent a player using a function unless they are logged in with enough rights.


bool canPlayerUseFunction ( player thePlayer, string functionName )

Required Arguments

  • thePlayer: The player who you consider is running the function.
  • functionName The name of the function which you want to check.


Returns true if the player specified can use the function specified, false otherwise.


This example adds a console function called kill_player that can only be used by players with enough access rights. These access rights can be specified in the server's config file.

function adminKillPlayer ( source, commandName, killPlayerName )
    if ( canPlayerUseFunction ( source, "kill_player" ) ) then     -- if the player can use the "kill_player" function
        local playerToKill = getPlayerFromNick ( killPlayerName )  -- look up the player to kill
        if ( playerToKill ~= false ) then                          -- check if we found him
            killPlayer ( playerToKill )                            -- if so, kill him
            outputConsole ( killPlayerName .. " has been killed!", source )   -- and notify the admin
            outputConsole ( "Couldn't find a player called '" .. killPlayerName .. "'", source ) -- otherwise tell him the player was not found
        outputConsole ( "You do not have access to this function!", source ) -- if he isn't allowed to use the function, tell him so
addCommandHandler ( "kill_player", adminKillPlayer )
