Cancel effect

AS OF 1.3.2 If this event is canceled, the game's chat system won't deliver the posts. You may use outputChatBox to send the messages then.

Example

This example doesn't output anything to chatbox if it consists only of numbers

function onClientChatMessageHandler(text)
	if string.match(text,"%d+") --[[string.match searches for pattern "%d+", means decimals]] == text then -- if string.match and text itself are the same
		cancelEvent() -- don't output it
	end
end
addEventHandler("onClientChatMessage", getRootElement(), onClientChatMessageHandler)
