How To Hide Inventory During Display Text

  • #1, by ice7Tuesday, 05. June 2018, 05:58 2 years ago
    Hello, I have an inquiry.

    I would like to hide the inventory whenever there is display text.

    Is there a simple way to accomplish this ?  

    Thank you for your time.

    It should automatically hide providing you haven't set the inventory interface to be displayed permanently via its properties.

    P.S: could you please edit & delete the multiple duplicate threads you have created please? Cheers.

    @afrlme the inventory doesnt get hidden when showing a display text...

    Probably you need to hide and reshow the interface  manually. 
    Or use lua to hook into a textStarted/textStopped event and temporary hide hide/show it globally

    No? Oh yeah, sorry. Forgot. grin

    Just use the Lua event handlers for textStarted & textStopped.

    Create a script in the script section of the editor & add this to it... (replace "inventory" with whatever you have named your inventory interface)

    function txtStart(text)
     if text.Owner:getId().tableId == eCharacters or text.Owner == nil then
      Interfaces["inventory"].Visible = false
     end
    end

    function txtEnd(text)
     Interfaces["inventory"].Visible = true
    end

    registerEventHandler("textStarted", "txtStart")
    registerEventHandler("textStopped", "txtEnd")

    Hello, thank you for replying to this thread.

     
    I have added the script, and replaced the "inventory" with what I named the interface, however the script is not working

    In editor there is a big red line under the second last line of code:
    registerEventHandler("textStarted" "txtStart")

    Thank you again.

    Yeah sorry, seems I missed the comma between the 2 different values. I've updated the code block.

    Thank you for that.

    One last small bug with the code.

    After every display text, the inventory pops open. Even when it was closed to begin with.

    Kind Regards

    So you just want it to hide only? If that's the case then...

    function txtStart(text)
     if text.Owner:getId().tableId == eCharacters or text.Owner == nil then
      Interfaces["inventory"].Visible = false
     end
    end

    registerEventHandler("textStarted", "txtStart")

    I have no idea what your inventory looks like or how you've rigged it up. Anyway, you're going to have to use Lua to show & hide it as needed.

    Use an execute a script action part & with this line of code whenever you want to show the interface... replace "inventory" with the actual name of the inventory interface.

    Interfaces["inventory"].Visible = true
    1

    & same again when you want to hide it, but true should be false instead.

    Hello, Thanks for the update.

    I will use that new code, whenever adding a new item to the inventory.

    Kind Regards
