Hi all,

 

Following my search for a progress bar, I'm trying to output a simple text. Nothing fancy here.

I watched this video and tried the method. However I can't even change the class name...

 

Is there a quick way to output a text, without using a hpp file ?

Currently using this :

 

text.sqf

 disableSerialization;

 1 cutRsc ["Jagger","PLAIN"];
waitUntil {!isNull (uiNameSpace getVariable "Jagger")};
	_display = uiNameSpace getVariable "Jagger";
	_setText = _display displayCtrl 1001;
	_setText ctrlSetStructuredText (parseText format ["Wonno"]);
	// _setText ctrlSetBackgroundColor [0,1,1,0.5];

dialogs.hpp

class RscTitles
{
    class Default 
       {
       idd = -1;
       fadein = 0;
       fadeout = 0;
       duration = 0;
         };
    class Jagger
    {
        idd = 1000000;
        movingEnable =  0;
        enableSimulation = 1;
        enableDisplay = 1;
        duration     =  99999;
        fadein       =  0.1;
        fadeout      =  2;
        name = "Jagger";
		onLoad = "with uiNameSpace do { Jagger = _this select 0 }";
	class controls 
        {
		    class structuredText
            {
                access = 0;
                type = 13;
                idc = 1001;
                style = 0x00;
                lineSpacing = 1;
				x = 0.103165 * safezoneW + safezoneX;
				y = 0.757996 * safezoneH + safezoneY;
				w = 0.778208 * safezoneW;
				h = 0.0660106 * safezoneH;
                size = 0.020;
                colorBackground[] = {0,0,0,0};
                colorText[] = {1,1,1,1};
                text = "";
                font = "PuristaSemiBold";
					class Attributes{
						font = "PuristaSemiBold";
						color = "#FFFFFF";
						align = "CENTER";
						valign = "top";
						shadow = false;
						shadowColor = "#000000";
						underline = false;
						size = "4";
								}; 
            };
		};
	};
};

Any simpler way ?

You can use the same approach larrow showed you for the progress bar.

Put the stuff from the hpp file into the description.ext :P

There was no use of hpp file of the description.ext file in Larrow's approach ...

Please look again, how I quoted. Both my answers are independent from each other.

You can either put it into the description.ext, OR use larrow's approach.

Ok, trying Larrow's method... This is the code for the progress bar :

with uiNamespace do { 
     my_awesome_progressBar = findDisplay 46 ctrlCreate ["RscProgress", -1]; 
     my_awesome_progressBar ctrlSetPosition [ 0.345, 0.3 ]; 
     my_awesome_progressBar progressSetPosition 0; 
     my_awesome_progressBar ctrlCommit 0;
     my_awesome_progressBar ctrlSetTextColor [0.4,0.804,0,1];
}; 

Do I do this ?

with uiNamespace do { 
     my_awesome_text = findDisplay 46 ctrlCreate ["RscTexts", -1]; 
     my_awesome_text ctrlSetPosition [ 0.345, 0.3 ]; 
     my_awesome_text ctrlCommit 0;
     my_awesome_text ctrlSetTextColor [0.4,0.804,0,1];
};

i use the script from the video to display a killfeed

 

so in my killfeed.sqf ill end with

 

killfeed.sqf:

_line = if(_victim == _killer) then { 
format["%1! killed himself",name _victim];	
} else {
format["%1 ==Killed== %2 from %3 mtr",name _killer,name _victim,_dis];

disableSerialization;

1 cutRsc ["KILLFEED","PLAIN"];


waitUntil {!isNull (uiNameSpace getVariable "KILLFEED")};
	_display = uiNameSpace getVariable "KILLFEED";
		_setText = _display displayCtrl 1001;
			_setText ctrlSetStructuredText (parseText format ["%1.",_line]);
			_setText ctrlSetBackgroundColor [0,0,0,0.5];

https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/ctrlSetText

my_awesome_progressBar ctrlSetText "Hello world.";

And "RscTexts" should probably be "RscText" instead. (https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/ctrlCreate/classnames)

 

Thank you, that works great. Anyway I can change the properties of the text (without hpp) ?

You mean its styling? Font size etc?

Then you might want to replace "RscText" with "RscStructuredText", and ctrlSetText with ctrlSetStructuredText.

Tried the exemple on here : https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/ctrlSetStructuredText

with uiNamespace do {
     my_awesome_text = findDisplay 46 ctrlCreate ["RscStructuredText", -1];
     my_awesome_text ctrlSetPosition [2,0,0.3,0.1];
     my_awesome_text ctrlCommit 0;
     my_awesome_text ctrlSetStructuredText parseText "<t>Hey there, it works... for now</t>";
};

However I have no way of moving the position of the text, what's the coordinate of the center of the screen ?

This might clear things up: https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/SafeZone

The center is 0.5,0.5. And 0,0 is the top left corner of the 4:3 center. So anything outside it is over 1 or below zero.

Thanks figured out the [0.5,0.5] coords !

 

Hold on! The 0.5,0.5 isn't the same on every monitor and resolution, you have to work with the safezone in order to make it work for everyone.

0.5,0.5 is the only thing that is the same on all resolutions! :D

Yeh, you're right.... however, if he uses it without safezone it will be screwed up on other resolutions.

Safezone, is it an absolute coordinate system, with the center as reference ?

No, safezone is not absolute, it takes care of your computer resolution and must be used in must cases to have the same render between clients.

How does it works for a simple text output ?

 

Is that it ?

//Creates centered control with 80% width and height:

x = safezoneX + 0.1 * safezoneW;
y = safezoneY + 0.1 * safezoneH;
w = safezoneW * 0.8;
h = safezoneH * 0.8;
