  • x: Position over the X axis
  • y: Position over the Y axis

Example

This example creates a label. When an element is clicked, the label displays in the position of the element telling you what kind of element you have clicked. It hides after 5 seconds.

DGS = exports.dgs
--create an empty label
local myLabel = DGS:dgsCreateLabel  ( 0, 0, 1, 1, "", true )

function addLabelOnClick ( button, state, absoluteX, absoluteY, worldX, worldY, worldZ, clickedElement )
	--if an element was clicked on screen
	if ( clickedElement ) then
		--retreive the element type
		local elementType = DGS:dgsGetType ( clickedElement )
		--change the label text to that element type
		DGS:dgsSetText ( myLabel, elementType )
		--and place it in the position of where the element is
		DGS:dgsSetPosition ( myLabel, absoluteX, absoluteY, false )
		--hide the text by passing an empty string 5 seconds later
		setTimer ( DGS:dgsSetText, 5000, 1, myLabel, "" )
	end
end
addEventHandler ( "onDgsMouseClick", getRootElement(), addLabelOnClick )
