Hello and thank you for reading.

 

I'm currently working on a script in which I want a group icon to get bigger when the player mouses over it.

 

onGroupIconOverEnter "(_this select 1) setGroupIcon (Can't figure out)";
onGroupIconOverLeave "(_this select 1) setGroupIcon (Can't figure out)";
 
No matter what I do in the setGroupIcon parameters I can't get it to work.
 
The wiki page is very poorly explained for this command.
 
Thanks in advance if anyone can help.

Yes, I already have done that. Neither of those commands pertain to size . 

_markGrp = _this select 0;
_shape = _this select 1;
_color = _this select 2;
_markGrp addGroupIcon [_shape,[0,0]];
_markGrp setGroupIconParams [_color,"",1,true];
onGroupIconOverEnter "(_this select 1) setGroupIcon (Can't figure out)";
onGroupIconOverLeave "(_this select 1) setGroupIcon (Can't figure out)";

The third parameter of setGroupIconParams is the scale of the icon, you have it set to 1, so it remains on a scale of 1:1

That only affects text size, not icon size. If you look at the setGroupIcon, command it does mention _iconsize but it is very cryptic.

Hmm, that is very cryptic.

 

I think it might just be a bad copy paste, all the other examples seem to suggest the parameters are:

[icon ID, icon path, icon offset]

Here are the actual parameters:

setGroupIcon [id,path,[offsetX,ofsetY]]

Looks like there's no way to scale it

SetGroupIconParams scales the icon in my tests but only in the 3D view, not on the map.

For example create a new mission with only you and another unit (not in your group) called S1 and run the following from the debugConsole...

setGroupIconsVisible [ true, true ];
setGroupIconsSelectable true;
group s1 addGroupIcon [ "b_inf", [0,0] ];
group s1 setGroupIconParams [ side s1 call BIS_fnc_sideColor,groupID group s1,1,true ];
onGroupIconOverEnter {
	_group = _this select 1;
		
	_group setGroupIconParams [[0,1,0,1],groupID _group,5,true]
	
};
onGroupIconOverLeave {
	_group = _this select 1;
	_group setGroupIconParams [ side leader _group call BIS_fnc_sideColor,groupID _group,1,true ];
	
};
When you look at the icon over the head of the S1 it will increase in size and turn green. On the map it will just turn green.

If you do a getGroupIconParams on S1 it also returns some extra parameters that are not documented on the WIKI..

[[0,0.298039,0.6,1],"Alpha 1-2",1,true,false,[0,0,0,1]]

changing these last two params with setGroupIconParams enables waypoints on the map and their color.
