This function checks to see if an account is a guest account. A guest account is an account automatically created for a user when they join the server and deleted when they quit or login to another account. Data stored in a guest account is not stored after the player has left the server. As a consequence, this function will check if a player is logged in or not.
bool isGuestAccount ( account theAccount )
OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!
- Method: account:isGuest(...)
- Variable: .guest
- theAccount: The account you want to check to see if it is a guest account.
Returns true if the account is a guest account, false otherwise.
This example shows how you could create a call_admin function that only could be run by registered users.
function callAdmin ( playerSource ) -- get the account of the user trying to use this function first sourceAccount = getPlayerAccount ( playerSource ) -- if they're a guest if isGuestAccount ( sourceAccount ) then -- tell them to register outputConsole ( "Please register to use this function!", playerSource ) else -- your code to call the admin would go here end end -- attach the function 'callAdmin' as a handler to the command "call_admin" addCommandHandler ( "call_admin", callAdmin )
