Help with login handler

Post by XMODS » Sun Aug 11, 2019 4:51 pm

Trying to get group alias and triggers for each character to work,
not sure if it is possible?...
enableAlias and enableTrigger don't seem to be working?..
or am i missing something...

Code: Select all

char = matches[2]
clearWindow("info1")
info1:echo(" \n Login: " ..char.."\n")	

-- load table?
login_data = login_data or {}
if io.exists(getMudletHomeDir() .. "/login_data.lua") and table.is_empty(login_data) then
    table.load(getMudletHomeDir() .. "/login_data.lua", login_data)
end

 
 -- add character if it doesn't exist?
 if table.contains(login_data, char) then
   info1:echo(" Already stored! \n")
 else 
   info1:echo(" Setup for: " ..char.. "\n")
   table.insert( login_data, { a_name = char, b_class = "blank", c_race = "blank"} )		
	 table.save(getMudletHomeDir() .. "/login_data.lua", login_data)
 end
 acctSwitch(char)
  
	
	-- =============== Switch to active character =====================================
	
function acctSwitch(current)
clearWindow("info2")

-- ====== If NEW Character, Create Groups ================

  if exists(current, "alias") == 0 then
     permGroup(current, "alias", "Characters")
  	 info2:echo("\nCreating new Alias Group for..." ..current)
  end

  if exists(current, "trigger") == 0 then
     permGroup(current, "trigger", "Characters")
  	 info2:echo("\nCreating new Trigger Group for..." ..current)
  end

-- ---------------------------------------------------

-- turn off all character groups 
   for k,v in ipairs(login_data) do
        name = string.format(v.a_name ) 
				info2:echo("\nDisabling... " ..name)
    		disableTrigger(name)
				disableAlias(name)	
   end
	 
	 info2:echo("\nSwitching to... " ..current)
   init(current)
end

-- ================= Enable Current Character's Groups ===============================

	function init(char)

   info2:echo("\nLoading Aliases... " ..char)
   enableAlias(char)	
   info2:echo("\nLoading Triggers... " ..char)	 
   enableTrigger(char)	
   
end

-- =============================================

Heya

Code: Select all

disableAlias('name in here')
disableTrigger('name in here')
enableAlias('name in here')
enableTrigger('name in here')
Those work, BUT
The script editor is a bit screwy and they don't visibly change to reflect that the group has been enabled/disabled until you click on it. Also, sometimes when you do click on them, they appear greyed out.

But the commands do actually work.

It's intended that it doesn't show the latest status, otherwise when you have it open it'd be updating icons all the time and in a massive system, that would really slow things down.
