Note: It's recommended not to use this function to limit features to users that belong to specific groups. Instead use hasObjectPermissionTo. Using this function forces the server owner to name their group a certain way, whereas using hasObjectPermissionTo allows the owner to give permission for whatever features you restrict to whatever groups they have set up in their ACL.

This function is used to determine if an object is in a group.


bool isObjectInACLGroup ( string theObject, aclgroup theGroup )

OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Method: aclgroup:doesContainObject(...)

Required Arguments

  • theObject: the name of the object to check. Examples: "resource.ctf", "user.Jim".
  • theGroup: the ACL group pointer of the group from which the object should be found.


Returns true if the object is in the specified group, false otherwise.


Example 1: This example adds a jetpack command that is only available to admins. When entering the command, it will toggle the player's jetpack.

addCommandHandler ( "jetpack",
    function ( thePlayer )
        if doesPedHaveJetPack ( thePlayer ) then -- If the player have a jetpack already, remove it
            removePedJetPack ( thePlayer ) -- Remove the jetpack
            return -- And stop the function here
     -- Otherwise, give him one if he has access

     local accName = getAccountName ( getPlayerAccount ( thePlayer ) ) -- get his account name
     if isObjectInACLGroup ("user."..accName, aclGetGroup ( "Admin" ) ) then -- Does he have access to Admin functions?
          if not doesPedHaveJetPack ( thePlayer ) then -- If the player doesn't have a jetpack give it.
               givePedJetPack ( thePlayer )  -- Give the jetpack

Example 2: This example displays a list of all the online admins in the chat box (assuming your administrator's group in your ACL is called 'admin'):

players = getElementsByType ( "player" )
admins = ""
for k,v in ipairs(players) do
   local accountname = ""
   if (isGuestAccount(getPlayerAccount(v)) == false) then
      accountname = getAccountName (getPlayerAccount(v))
      if isObjectInACLGroup ( "user." .. accountname, aclGetGroup ( "admin" ) ) then
         if (admins == "") then
            admins = getPlayerName(v)
            admins = admins .. ", " .. getPlayerName(v)
outputChatBox( "Online Admins:", getRootElement(), 255, 255, 0)
outputChatBox( " " .. tostring ( admins ), getRootElement(), 255, 255, 0)
