[HELP] Create markers from XML


John_Scott

Recommended Posts

Hi!

First thing:

I would like to create a few markers to my sevrvers and set a category to everyone, like:

<marker posX="2158.87" posY="943.16" posZ="11.5" type="arrow" category="gunshop"/> 

Now, i just need to playce all of these markers to the server, but IDK how to load all lines from this file.

Second thing:

I would like to add a category to all marker, to decide it's a gunshop, a vehicleshop, or what?! How can I get this value in the onMarkerHit function, like this?:

if (*markertype == "gunshop") then 
*Show gunshop GUI* 
elseif (*markertype == "vehicleshop") then 
*Show vehicleshop GUI 
end 

Thanks for all help!

If you no have enought time to give me a true answer, why give me any answer? I know these functions, but I can't use to what I would like.

You didn't state you knew these functions. We encourage learning, not leeching.

  
function markerLoader() 
    local types = {"posX", "posY", "posZ", "type", "category"} 
    local mapPositions = xmlLoadFile ("filename.xml") 
    local mapTable = {} 
    for k,v in ipairs(xmlNodeGetChildren(mapPositions)) do 
    mapTable[k] = {} 
    for j,l in ipairs(types) do 
        table.insert(mapTable[k],xmlNodeGetAttribute(mapPositions,l)) 
    end 
    local marker = createMarker(mapTable[k][1], mapTable[k][2], mapTable[k][3], mapTable[k][4]) 
    setElementData (marker, "category", mapTable[k][5]) 
    end 
end 
  

No promises that this works. I wrote it real quick on a lunch break. It should load an XML like so.

<markers> 
        <marker posX="2158.87" posY="943.16" posZ="11.5" type="arrow" category="gunshop"/> 
        <marker posX="2158.87" posY="943.16" posZ="11.5" type="arrow" category="gunshop"/> 
        <marker posX="2158.87" posY="943.16" posZ="11.5" type="arrow" category="gunshop"/> 
        <marker posX="2158.87" posY="943.16" posZ="11.5" type="arrow" category="gunshop"/> 
</markers>
