The getElementPosition function allows you to retrieve the position coordinates of an element. This can be any real world element, including:


float, float, float getElementPosition ( element theElement )

OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Method: element:getPosition(...)
Variable: .position
Counterpart: setElementPosition

Required Arguments

  • theElement: The element which you'd like to retrieve the location of


Returns three floats indicating the position of the element, x, y and z respectively.


This example attaches a samsite on the player's vehicle.

-- Create the elegy
local myElegy = createVehicle(562, 1591.596680, -2495.323242, 18.098244) 
-- Get the vehicle's position
local x, y, z = getElementPosition(myElegy)
-- Create the samsite
local samsite = createObject(3267, x, y, z + 3)
-- Attach the samsite to the elegy
attachElementToElement(samsite, myElegy, 0, 0, 0)
