GuiGridListGetSelectedItems

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

This function returns the items selected in the specified grid list.

Note that for some reason the column ID is 1 lower than it should be, for example 0 is returned but if you try and get the text for column 0 there is nothing, but column 1 has what you clicked on.

Syntax

table guiGridListGetSelectedItems ( element gridList )

Required Arguments

  • gridList: The grid list which selected items you want to retrieve.

Returns

Returns a table over the selected items in the grid list in this format:

table = {
    [1] = {
        ["column"], -- has the first selected item's column ID
        ["row"] -- has the first selected item's row ID
    },
    [2] = {
        ["column"],-- has the second selected item's column ID
        ["row"] -- has the second selected item's row ID
    },
    ...
}


if everything was successful or false if invalid arguments were passed.
