[MTA BEGINNER] QUESTION


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello guys, so i encountered a little problem. This is a icon for admin but, i can`t understand how this works. For example those tooltips are made in a straight line and i want to make my own line with tooltips, like box because i want them to be vertical not horizontal, and i can`t really understand this any help please, i tried a lot but i can`t seem to get it to work, i got no idea what to do to make them in straight line.

local isAdmin = exports.integration:isPlayerTrialAdmin(localPlayer)  
if isAdmin  then
   if getElementData( localPlayer,"duty_admin" )  == 1  then
      --dxDrawImage(ax,ay,iconH,iconH,"images/hud/adm_on.png")
      --dxDrawImage(1645, 500, 64, 64, "images/hud/adm_on.png")          
      --table.insert(tooltips, "adminonduty")                        --This is a tooltip for it, and on the second script it fires something but i can t really understand it.
   else
      --dxDrawImage(ax, ay, iconH, iconH, "images/hud/adm_off.png")
      --dxDrawImage(1558, 501, 77, 63, "images/hud/adm_off.png", false)
      --table.insert(tooltips, "adminoffduty")
   end
   ax = ax - iconW
end

 

This is what i can`t really understand at all, trying already for 3 hours to understand this script. 

 

if isCursorShowing() then
   ax, ay = screenWidth, getElementData(localPlayer, "annHeight") or 0
   bx, by = screenWidth, screenHeight - iconH + 4
   cursorX, cursorY = cursorX * screenWidth, cursorY * screenHeight
   
   for i = 1, #tooltips do
      ax = ax - iconW
      if isInBox( cursorX, cursorY, ax, ax + iconW, ay, ay + iconH/2 ) then
         --ADMIN DUTY / MAXIME
         if tooltips[i] == "adminonduty" then              --what does this mean
            tooltip( cursorX, cursorY, "Admin Duty is ON", "Click to go OFF duty")   --this too  
            if justClicked then
               triggerEvent("accounts:settings:updateAccountSettings", localPlayer, "duty_admin", 0)
               --triggerServerEvent("updateNametagColor", localPlayer)
               playToggleSound()
            end
if isInBox( cursorX, cursorY, ax, ax + iconW, ay, ay + iconH/2 ) then        -- FEEL LIKE THIS IS THE THING THAT MATTERS THE MOST BUT I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO USE IT OR ROTATE IT UPWARDS SO IT CAN BE VERTICAL, FOR NOW IS ONLY HORIZONTAL..

Please give me an exemple too if you know  because i`m  a beginner and i want to see a proof then learn that example and use it myself to further projects

I don't understand completely how you are trying to do it, so I just wrote an example code. I hope it helps.

local screenWidth, screenHeight = guiGetScreenSize()

local tooltips = { "adminonduty", "random1", "random2", "random3" } -- list with tooptips, I just define it here, you can mess with inserts

local firstX, firstY = screenWidth/2-40, screenHeight/2-(#tooltips*50/2) -- position of first tooltip


-- you have to split it up 2 parts, for drawing and checking

-- drawing part
addEventHandler("onClientRender", root, function()
    local offset = 0 -- position offset between tooltips, ofc this is 0 by default

    for i = 1, #tooltips do
        local tooltip = tooltips[i]
        
        local tipX, tipY = firstX, firstY -- base position
                    tipY = tipY + offset  -- shift

        -- get cursor's absolute position (stay at 0,0 if cursor not showing)
        local cursorX, cursorY = 0, 0
        if isCursorShowing() then
            cursorX, cursorY = getCursorPosition()
            cursorX, cursorY = cursorX * screenWidth, cursorY * screenHeight
        end

        if isInBox(cursorX, cursorY, tipX, tipY, 80, 30) then -- active button
            dxDrawRectangle(tipX, tipY, 80, 30, tocolor(0,0,0,255))
            dxDrawText(tooltip, tipX, tipY, tipX+80, tipY+30, tocolor(255,255,255,255), 1, "default-bold", "center", "center")
        else -- not active button
            dxDrawRectangle(tipX, tipY, 80, 30, tocolor(255,255,255,255))
            dxDrawText(tooltip, tipX, tipY, tipX+80, tipY+30, tocolor(0,0,0,255), 1, "default-bold", "center", "center")
        end

        -- increase offset (to draw next one under the previous)
        offset = offset + 50
    end
end)

-- cheking part
-- here we calculate the tooltips positions again with the same method
addEventHandler("onClientClick", root, function(key, state, cursorX, cursorY)
    if key == "left" and state == "up" then -- check only left-clicks
        local offset = 0 -- position offset between tooltips, ofc this is 0 by default

        for i = 1, #tooltips do
            local tooltip = tooltips[i]
            
            local tipX, tipY = firstX, firstY -- base position
                        tipY = tipY + offset  -- shift

            -- the event give us the cursor positions, we don't have to calculate them

            if isInBox(cursorX, cursorY, tipX, tipY, 80, 30) then -- clicking on this tooltip
                outputChatBox("Clicking on tooltip: " .. tooltip)
                return -- stop the for loop, not necessary to check others
            end

            -- increase offset
            offset = offset + 50
        end
    end
end)

function isInBox(clickX, clickY, boxX, boxY, boxWidth, boxHeight)
    return (clickX >= boxX and clickX <= boxX + boxWidth ) and (clickY >= boxY and clickY <= boxY + boxHeight )
end
