• Replaceable Peram

    From DesotoFireflite@VERT/VALHALLA to All on Friday, October 23, 2015 15:16:03
    How do you go about using the @ replaceable perameters in a js file. I tried to add time left to the chat module, and all it did was print TIMELEFT instead of putting the actual time left. Can it be done as part of the prompt, or am I trying to invent the wheel again. As always, Thanks.

    They should work when outputted through console.putmsg, eg:

    console.putmsg("Time left: @TIMELEFT@");

    Heh, of course that won't really show up the way I intended, but you get the idea.

    The console.putmsg() function should do what you want. console.putmsg() will interpret @-codes, etc. as it displays the text you give it. For parameters, it takes a text string and an optional mode bits parameter.

    Ok, I'll try that, Thanks EC.

    I scanned that, but I didn't see it, but to be fair, I was looking for more of a print command like baja. Ok, thanks.
