GuiSetInputEnabled

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

This function enables or disables input focus for the GUI. This means that any keybinds or MTA binds are overidden so that text can be input into an editbox, for example. In other words, keys such as t and y which activate the chatbox are disabled.

guiSetInputMode can be used as an extended version of guiSetInputEnabled since it provides the same functionality with one added feature.

Syntax

bool guiSetInputEnabled ( bool enabled )
