Dialog Styles

note
  • In OnDialogResponse, pressing button1 sets response to 1, while pressing button2 sets response to 0.
  • Every dialog can have an optional button 2. To make it disappear leave it empty, like in the first example. Players won't be able to click it, but they will be able to press ESC and trigger OnDialogResponse with response = 0.
  • ShowPlayerDialog: Color embedding can be used for every string: caption, info, button1 and button2.
public OnDialogResponse( playerid, dialogid, response, listitem, inputtext[ ] )
{
printf( "playerid = %d, dialogid = YOUR_DIALOGID, response = %d, listitem = %d, inputtext = '%s' (size: %d)", playerid, response, listitem, inputtext, strlen( inputtext ) );
return 1;
}
