Operation Flashpoint: Event Handlers

From Bohemia Interactive Community
Jump to navigation Jump to search

An event handler (abbreviated to EH) allows you to automatically monitor and then execute custom code upon particular events being triggered.
See also Event Scripts for special event triggered scripts.

Introduced with Operation Flashpoint version 1.991.99

AnimChanged

Triggered every time a new animation is started.

Global.

Passed array: [unit, anim]

  • unit: Object - Object the event handler is assigned to
  • anim: String - Name of the anim that started

Dammaged

Triggered when the unit is damaged.

Global.

(If simultaneous damage occured (e.g. via grenade) EH might be triggered several times.)

Note: Can be triggered on vehicles only when the engine is on (and therefore it needs a driver/pilot).

Passed array: [unit, selectionName, damage]

  • unit: Object - Object the event handler is assigned to
  • selectionName: String - Name of the selection where the unit was damaged "nohy" - leg, "ruce" - hand, "hlava" - head, "telo" - body)
  • damage: Number - Resulting level of damage

Engine

Triggered when the engine of the unit is turned on/off.

Global.

There is a bug in MP: On clients where the vehicle is not local, engineState is always false, so you should use the following instead:

_vehicle addEventHandler ["engine", {[_this select 0, isEngineOn (_this select 0)] exec "myScript.sqs"}"];

Passed array: [unit, engineState]

  • unit: Object - Object the event handler is assigned to
  • engineState: Boolean - True when the engine is turned on, false when turned off


Fired

Triggered when the unit fires a weapon.

Global.

Passed array: [unit, weapon, muzzle, mode, ammo]

  • unit: Object - Object the event handler is assigned to
  • weapon: String - Fired weapon
  • muzzle: String - Muzzle which was used
  • mode: String - Current mode of the fired weapon
  • ammo: String - Ammo used


Fuel

Triggered when the unit's fuel status changes between completely empty / not empty (only useful when the object the event handler is assigned to is a vehicle).

Global.

Passed array: [unit, fuelState]

  • unit: Object - Object the event handler is assigned to
  • fuelState: Boolean - 0 when no fuel, 1 when the fuel tank is full


Gear

Triggered when the unit lowers/retracts the landing gear (only useful when the object the event handler is assigned to is a member of the class "Plane").

Global.

Passed array: [unit, gearState]

  • unit: Object - Object the event handler is assigned to
  • gearState: Boolean - True when the gear is lowered, false when retracted


GetIn

  • position: String - Can be either "driver", "gunner", "commander" or "cargo"
  • enterer: Object - Object that got into the vehicle


GetOut

Triggered when a unit gets out from the object, works the same way as GetIn.

Global.

Note: The GetIn/GetOut event handlers do not fire when changing positions within a vehicle.
