GuiGetInputMode

From Multi Theft Auto: Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This function returns the current input mode as set by guiSetInputMode. Default mode is "allow_binds".

Syntax

string guiGetInputMode ( )

OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Method: GuiElement.getInputMode(...)
Variable: .inputMode
Counterpart: guiSetInputMode

Returns

Returns a string defining the current input mode, potential values are:

  • "allow_binds": binds are enabled, hence using a key such as t in an editbox will still activate the chatbox
  • "no_binds": binds are disabled, hence using a key such as t in an editbox will not activate the chatbox
  • "no_binds_when_editing": binds are always enabled except when an editable editbox or memo has input focus

Example

Click to collapse [-]
Client
addCommandHandler( "checkmode", 
function ()
    outputChatBox( string.format( "The current input mode is: '%s'", guiGetInputMode () ) )
end )

Note

This function, introduced in 1.1, is not a replacement of guiGetInputEnabled, indeed for the mode "no_binds_when_editing" the actual state of binds depends on the currently focused GUI widget. However:

  • when guiGetInputMode ( ) returns "allow_binds" you can be sure that guiGetInputEnabled () will return false
  • when guiGetInputMode ( ) returns "no_binds" you can be sure that guiGetInputEnabled () will return true
