Iprint

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

This function intelligently outputs debug messages into the Debug Console. It is similar to outputDebugString, but outputs useful information for any variable type, and does not require use of Lua's tostring. This includes information about element types, and table structures. It is especially useful for quick debug tasks.

Syntax

bool iprint ( mixed var1[, mixed var2, mixed var3...] )             

Required Arguments

  • var1: A variable of any type to print intelligent information for.

Optional Arguments

NOTE: When using optional arguments, you might need to supply all arguments before the one you wish to use. For more information on optional arguments, see optional arguments.

  • var2+: Another variable to be output. An unlimited number of arguments can be supplied

Returns

Always returns nil.

Server

This example prints some sample debug messages, assuming the server is running a typical freeroam/play environment:

function resourceStartNotify ( resourcename )
	-- Example of outputting tables, and elements directly
	iprint(getElementsByType("player"))
	iprint(getElementsByType("vehicle"))
	-- Example of outputting multiple items at once
	iprint("this resource:",getThisResource(),"state:",getResourceState(getThisResource()),"resource root:",getResourceRootElement(getThisResource()))
end
addEventHandler( "onResourceStart", getRootElement(), resourceStartNotify )

The output from the server might look like this:

[2016-10-01 21:25:43] INFO: { elem:player[MrPlayer] }

[2016-10-01 21:25:43] INFO: { elem:vehicle[Monster 3]2ED3EF60, elem:vehicle[Monster 3]2ED3F620, elem:vehicle[Banshee]2ED3F548, elem:vehicle[Banshee]2ED3F590, elem:vehicle[Bullet]2ED3F5D8, elem:vehicle[BMX]2ED3FA58, elem:vehicle[BMX]2ED3FE00, elem:vehicle[Sparrow]2ED3F788, elem:vehicle[Sanchez]2ED3F6B0, elem:vehicle[Sanchez]2ED3F8A8, elem:vehicle[Sanchez]2ED3FE48, elem:vehicle[Jetmax]2ED3FC98, elem:vehicle[Dinghy]2ED3FA10, elem:vehicle[Marquis]2ED3FB78, elem:vehicle[Bandito]2ED3FAA0, elem:vehicle[Beagle]2ED3F980, elem:vehicle[Buffalo]2ED3FDB8, elem:vehicle[Sabre]2ED3F6F8, elem:vehicle[Caddy]2ED3F7D0, elem:vehicle[Sparrow]2ED3F938, elem:vehicle[Sanchez]2ED3FED8, elem:vehicle[Sanchez]2ED3FCE0, elem:vehicle[Sanchez]2ED3F860, elem:vehicle[Monster 3]2ED3F8F0, elem:vehicle[Monster 3]2ED3FC08, elem:vehicle[Buffalo]2ED3F9C8, elem:vehicle[Bandito]2ED3FAE8, elem:vehicle[Caddy]2ED3FB30, elem:vehicle[Sabre]2ED3F668, elem:vehicle[Bullet]2ED3FBC0, elem:vehicle[Banshee]2ED3FF20, elem:vehicle[Banshee]2ED3F818, elem:vehicle[Monster 3]2ED3FC50, elem:vehicle[Monster 3]2ED3FD28, elem:vehicle[Buffalo]2ED3FD70, elem:vehicle[Bandito]2ED3FE90, elem:vehicle[Caddy]2ED3F740, elem:vehicle[Sabre]2ED405E0, elem:vehicle[Bullet]2ED406B8, elem:vehicle[Banshee]2ED40748, elem:vehicle[Banshee]2ED401F0, elem:vehicle[Sanchez]2ED40508, elem:vehicle[Sanchez]2ED401A8, elem:vehicle[Sanchez]2ED40040, elem:vehicle[Sparrow]2ED40118, elem:vehicle[Sanchez]2ED40238, elem:vehicle[Sanchez]2ED3FFB0, elem:vehicle[Sanchez]2ED40598, elem:vehicle[Monster 3]2ED40550, elem:vehicle[Monster 3]2ED40700, elem:vehicle[Buffalo]2ED40280, elem:vehicle[Bandito]2ED403A0, elem:vehicle[Caddy]2ED400D0, elem:vehicle[Sabre]2ED402C8, elem:vehicle[Bullet]2ED40160, elem:vehicle[Banshee]2ED40790, elem:vehicle[Banshee]2ED40628, elem:vehicle[Sparrow]2ED3FFF8 }
