Resource:CallingFunctions

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

Note: It is strongly advised that you validate the functions being called or potentially a client can do anything they want with your server - banning players, adding themselves as admin (depending how well your ACL is set up) etc. This is why this function is not built into MTA.

This resource was made off of the functions: CallClientFunction and CallServerFunction

Calling Functions

Click to collapse [-]
callSF
 void exports.callingFunctions:callSF( string funcname, [ var arg1, ... ] ) 

Required

  • funcname: The name of the function that should be called serverside. May also be a function in a table, e.g. "math.round".

Optional

  • agr1-argn: The arguments that should be passed to the function.

Example

This example removes the player from his team.

-- get the local player element
local _local = getLocalPlayer()
-- define the leaveTeam command handler function
function cmdLeaveTeam()
    -- set the player's team to nil
    callServerFunction("setPlayerTeam", _local)
end
-- add the command handler
addCommandHandler("leaveTeam", cmdLeaveTeam, false)
Click to collapse [-]
callCF
 void exports.callingFunctions:callCF( client Client, string funcname, [ var arg1, ... ] ) 

Required

  • Client: The element of the player who should be affected.
  • funcname: The name of the function that should be called serverside. May also be a function in a table, e.g. "math.round".

Optional

  • agr1-argn: The arguments that should be passed to the function.

Example

This example sets the player's minute duration.

-- define the onPlayerJoin handler function
function onPlayerJoin()
    -- set the minute duration
    callClientFunction(source, "setMinuteDuration", 10000)
end
-- add the event handler
addEventHandler("onPlayerJoin", root, onPlayerJoin)

I give all thanks to Neon Black for making these functions.
