OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Method: searchLight:setEndPosition(...)
Variable: .endPosition
Counterpart: getSearchLightEndPosition

Required Arguments

  • theSearchLight: the searchlight to modify the property of.
  • endX: the X coordinate where the searchlight light cone will end.
  • endY: the Y coordinate where the searchlight light cone will end.
  • endZ: the Z coordinate where the searchlight light cone will end.

Returns

If every argument is correct, this function returns true. If not, it will return false plus an error message.

Example

This example creates a searchlight that originates in the camera position and targets to the front of it.

local searchLight = createSearchLight(0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 10)

if searchLight then
    local function updateSearchLight()
        -- Get camera position and look at point
        local sx, sy, sz, ex, ey, ez = getCameraMatrix()
        -- Set searchlight's start position to the camera position, and end position to the look at point
        setSearchLightStartPosition(searchLight, sx, sy, sz)
        setSearchLightEndPosition(searchLight, ex, ey, ez)
    end
    addEventHandler("onClientPreRender", root, updateSearchLight)
