OnPlayerScreenShot

From Multi Theft Auto: Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This event is triggered when the screen capture requested by takePlayerScreenShot has completed.

Parameters

resource theResource, string status, string imageData, int timestamp, string tag
  • theResource: the resource which called takePlayerScreenShot.
  • status: a string containing the status of the event which can be one of three values:
    • "ok" - the image capture was successful and imageData will contain a JPEG image.
    • "disabled" - the image capture failed because the player has disabled screen uploads.
    • "minimized" - the image capture failed because the player has minimized the screen (i.e. alt-tabbed).
  • imageData: a string which contains the JPEG image data. This can be saved with the file functions, or sent to players with triggerClientEvent or even uploaded to a web site.
  • timestamp: an int representing the server tick count when the capture was taken.
  • tag: a string passed to takePlayerScreenShot.
