Package-x-generic.png This function is provided by the external module Basic IRC Module. You must install this module to use this function.

This function can be used to kick user from the specified channel. The specified ircbot often needs to have suitable privileges in order for this to work.

Syntax

bool ircKick ( ircbot theBot, string channel, string user, [ string reason = "" ] )

Required Arguments

  • theBot: The ircbot which is going to do the kicking
  • channel: The channel where user should be kicked from
  • user: The user who should be kicked

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.

  • reason: The reason for the kick

Returns

Returns true if passed arguments were valid, false otherwise.
Note: Does not return true if the user was successfully kicked or false if it failed. You can check if the user was kicked by using callback event_ircOnKick.

Example

This example creates an ircbot called DummyBot, makes it connect to a server and join a channel. It also includes an IRC command '!kick' which can be used to kick users from the channel.

function resourceStart ( )
    theBot = ircCreateBot ( "DummyBot" )
    ircConnect ( theBot, "irc.gtanet.com", 6667 )
end
addEventHandler ( "onResourceStart", getResourceRootElement ( getThisResource() ), resourceStart )
 
function event_ircOnConnect ( theBot )
    setTimer ( ircJoinChannel, 2000, 1, theBot, "#testchannel" )
end
 
function event_ircOnText ( theBot, channel, sender, message )
    if message:find( "!kick" ) then
        local params = split ( message, string.byte (' ') )
        -- params[1] has the string "!kick" which we don't need
        -- params[2] has the user name
        if ircIsInChannel ( theBot, channel, params[2] ) then
            ircKick ( theBot, channel, params[2] )
        end
    end
end
