- button: This refers the button used to click on the mouse, can be left, right, or middle.
- state: This can be used to tell if the user released or pressed the mouse button, where up is passed if the button is released, and down is passed if the button is pushed.
- absoluteX: This refers to the 2D x coordinate the user clicked on his screen, and is an absolute position in pixels.
- absoluteY: This refers to the 2D y coordinate the user clicked on his screen, and is an absolute position in pixels.
- worldX: This represents the 3D x coordinate the player clicked on the screen, and is relative to the GTA world.
- worldY: This represents the 3D y coordinate the player clicked on the screen, and is relative to the GTA world.

This example creates a label when an element is clicked, the label displays in the position of the element telling you what kind of element you have clicked. It hides after 5 seconds.
local myLabel = guiCreateLabel ( 0, 0, 1, 1, "", true ) function addLabelOnClick ( button, state, absoluteX, absoluteY, worldX, worldY, worldZ, clickedElement ) --if an element was clicked on screen if ( clickedElement ) then --retreive the element type local elementType = getElementType ( clickedElement ) --change the label text to that element type guiSetText ( myLabel, elementType ) --and place it in the position of where the element is guiSetPosition ( myLabel, absoluteX, absoluteY, false ) --hide the text by passing an empty string 5 seconds later setTimer ( guiSetText, 5000, 1, myLabel, "" ) end end addEventHandler ( "onClientClick", getRootElement(), addLabelOnClick )
