Jump to: navigation, search

This function will tell you what color a blip is. This color is only applicable to the default blip icon (Blipid0s.png, Blipid0u.png or Blipid0d.png). All other icons will ignore this.

Syntax

int int int int getBlipColor ( blip theBlip )

OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Method: blip:getColor(...)
Counterpart: setBlipColor

Required Arguments

  • theBlip: The blip whose color you wish to get.

Returns

Returns four integers in RGBA format, with a maximum value of 255 for each. The values are, in order, red, green, blue, and alpha. Alpha decides the transparancy where 255 is opaque and 0 is fully transparent. false is returned if the blip is invalid.

Example

This example will find all the blips that exist and set them all to white if they aren't white already.

-- Retrieve a table containing all the blips that exist
blips = getElementsByType ( "blip" )
-- Loop through the list, storing the blip from the table in the variable blipValue
for blipKey, blipValue in ipairs(blips) do
	-- Retrieve the blip's colors into the variables red, green, blue and alpha
	red, green, blue, alpha = getBlipColor ( blipValue )
	-- If the blip's icon isn't white already
	if ( red ~= 255 or green ~= 255 or blue ~= 255 or alpha ~= 255 ) then
		-- Set the blip's color to white
		setBlipColor ( blipValue, 255, 255, 255, 255 )
	end
end
