Resource:Dxscoreboard

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

The DirectX scoreboard displays connected players, teams, pings and other data for players ingame. It also has a javascript-enabled web interface, so it can be viewed from a browser. It's created as a replacement for the old scoreboard resource created by jbeta.

The biggest difference to the old resource is that it is created fully using MTA's DirectX drawing functions. When you add a column to the scoreboard, it's linked to the element data field of the same name, so if you add the "score" column, element data in the field "score" will be shown for all players and teams.

bool scoreboardSetForced ( bool forced, [ element forElement = getRootElement() ] )
  • forced: Should scoreboard be forced.
  • forElement: The player whose scoreboard should be forced.

bool selected, int cursorX, int cursorY
  • selected: Was the current row selected (true) or unselected (false).

You can call them from another resource using call()

call ( getResourceFromName ( "dxscoreboard" ), "scoreboardAddColumn", "Wanted level" )

-- Note that this syntax is also valid
exports.dxscoreboard:scoreboardAddColumn( "Wanted level" )

You can set the scoreboard data with setElementData:

-- 3 is inserted in the player's wanted level column, if column
-- called "Wanted level" has been added in the scoreboard
setElementData ( player, "Wanted level", 3 )
