DgsCreateCheckBox

From Multi Theft Auto: Wiki

This function creates a DGS Dx Check Box.

Note: DGS Dx Check Box have 3 states.(checked: true; unchecked: false; indeterminate: nil)

Syntax

element dgsCreateCheckBox ( float x, float y, float width, float height, string text, bool selected, bool relative [, element parent = nil, int textcolor, float textScaleX = 1.0, float textScaleY = 1.0, element defimg_f = nil, element hovimg_f = nil, element cliimg_f = nil, int defcolor_f = 0xFFFFFFFF, int hovcolor_f = 0xFFFFFFFF, int clicolor_f = 0xFFB4B4B4, element defimg_t = nil, element  hovimg_t = nil, element cliimg_t = nil, int defcolor_t = 0xFFFFFFFF, int hovcolor_t = 0xFFFFFFFF,int clicolor_t = 0xFFB4B4B4, element defimg_i = nil, element  hovimg_i = nil, element cliimg_i = nil, int defcolor_i = 0xFFFFFFFF, int hovcolor_i = 0xFFFFFFFF,int clicolor_i = 0xFFB4B4B4 ] )

Required Arguments

Test Checkbox
  • x: A float of the 2D x position of the checkbox on a player's screen. This is affected by the relative argument.
  • y: A float of the 2D y position of the checkbox on a player's screen. This is affected by the relative argument.
  • width: A float of the width of the text field next to the checkbox. This is affected by the relative argument.
  • height: A float of the height of the text field next to the checkbox. This is affected by the relative argument.
  • text: The text to be displayed next to the checkbox.
  • selected: A boolean representing whether the checkbox created should be selected by default.
  • relative: This is whether sizes and positioning are relative. If this is true, then all x,y,width,height floats must be between 0 and 1, representing measures relative to the parent.

Optional Arguments

NOTE: When using optional arguments, you might need to supply all arguments before the one you wish to use. For more information on optional arguments, see optional arguments.

  • parent: This is the parent that the DGS check box is attached to. If the relative argument is true, sizes and positioning will be made relative to this parent. If the relative argument is false, positioning will be the number of offset pixels from the parent's origin. If no parent is passed, the parent will become the screen - causing positioning and sizing according to screen positioning.
  • textcolor: An int of the color of the check box.
  • textScaleX : A float of the width of the text scale.
  • textScaleY: A float of the height of the text scale.
  • defimg_f: An image element of the default state of the check box. (unchecked)
  • hovimg_f: An image element of the hovered state of the check box. (unchecked)
  • cliimg_f: An image element of the clicked state of the check box. (unchecked)
  • defcolor_f: An integer of the color of the default state of the check box. (unchecked)
  • hovcolor_f: An integer of the color of the hovered state of the check box. (unchecked)
  • clicolor_f: An integer of the color of the clicked state of the check box. (unchecked)
  • defimg_t: An image element of the default state of the check box. (checked)
  • hovimg_t: An image element of the hovered state of the check box. (checked)
  • cliimg_t: An image element of the clicked state of the check box. (checked)
  • defcolor_t: An integer of the color of the default state of the check box. (checked)
  • hovcolor_t: An integer of the color of the hovered state of the check box. (checked)
  • clicolor_t: An integer of the color of the clicked state of the check box. (checked)
  • defimg_i: An image element of the default state of the check box. (indeterminate)
  • hovimg_i: An image element of the hovered state of the check box. (indeterminate)
  • cliimg_i: An image element of the clicked state of the check box. (indeterminate)
  • defcolor_i: An integer of the color of the default state of the check box. (indeterminate)
  • hovcolor_i: An integer of the color of the hovered state of the check box. (indeterminate)
  • clicolor_i: An integer of the color of the clicked state of the check box. (indeterminate)

Optional Arguments

NOTE: When using optional arguments, you might need to supply all arguments before the one you wish to use. For more information on optional arguments, see optional arguments.

  • parent: This is the parent that the checkbox is attached to. If the relative argument is true, sizes and positioning will be made relative to this parent. If the relative argument is false, positioning will be the number of offset pixels from the parent's origin. If no parent is passed, the parent will become the screen - causing positioning and sizing according to screen positioning.

Returns

Returns element of the checkbox if it was created succesfully, false otherwise.

Example

This example creates a DGS window with a checked and an unchecked checkbox and adds a command to toggle their visibility

DGS = exports.dgs

function drawGUI()
	local window = DGS:dgsCreateWindow(100,100,200,120,"Checkbox test area",false,false) -- create the container window
	local checkedBox = DGS:dgsCreateCheckBox(20,30,150,20,"Checked checkbox",true,false,window) -- note the parameter after header, it will make the checkbox be checked
	local uncheckedBox = DGS:dgsCreateCheckBox(20,60,150,20,"Unchecked checkbox",false,false,window) -- not here though
	local indeterminateBox= DGS:dgsCreateCheckBox(20,90,150,20,"Indeterminate checkbox",nil,false,window) -- Indeterminate
	DGS:dgsSetVisible(window,false) -- set it invisible just in case
	return window -- we return the window
end
function cmdGUI(cmd)
	if not checkBoxWindow then -- if it hasn't been declared yet
		checkBoxWindow = drawGUI() -- we draw the dgs window
		DGS:dgsSetVisible(checkBoxWindow,true) -- we set it visible again. Strictly speaking it's not necessary, could have omitted both this and the upper dgsSetVisible, but this is needed if you want to cache a window without actually showing it
	else -- if we actually have run this function before and declared checkBoxWindow
		DGS:dgsSetVisible(checkBoxWindow, not DGS:dgsGetVisible(checkBoxWindow)) -- we just toggle the visibility. If it was visible, not visible returns false and thus sets it's visibility false, effectivly hiding it	
	end
	showCursor(not isCursorShowing()) -- similar to above visibility
end
addCommandHandler("guiwindow",cmdGUI) -- trigger cmdGUI function with this command
