OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Method: GuiElement:getProperties(...)
Variable: .properties

Required Arguments

  • guiElement: the GUI element you wish to get the properties of.

Returns

If the function succeeds, the return value is a table. Its keys are property names, the corresponding values are the values of the properties (both names and values are always strings). If the function fails, it returns false.

Example

The following example code will create a button and lists its properties in the console if the /btn command is entered.

addCommandHandler("btn",
    function()
        local btn = guiCreateButton(20, 200, 150, 30, "Test", false)
        local props = guiGetProperties(btn)
        for propName,propVal in pairs(props) do
            outputConsole(propName .. " = " .. propVal)
        end
    end
)
