Description

Description:
Sets a polyline marker's path.
Multiplayer optimisation: Global marker commands always broadcast the entire marker state over the network. As such, the number of network messages exchanged when creating or editing a marker can be reduced by performing all but the last operation using local marker commands, then using a global marker command for the last change (and subsequent global broadcast of all changes applied to the marker).

Syntax

Syntax:
marker setMarkerPolyline path
Parameters:
marker: String
path: Array - [x1, y1, x2, y2, ... xn, yn]
Be aware that this command expects an array with a minimum array size of 4 elements and that the array count always needs to be dividable by 4 and return a whole number.
Return Value:
Nothing

Examples

Example 1:
Changes "marker_1" into a polyline and draws a sine curve on your position"marker_1" setMarkerShape "polyline"; private _return = [] ; for "_i" from 0 to 100 step 0.1 do { _return pushBack (_i + getPos player#0); _return pushBack ((sin (_i*10))*10 + getPos player#1); } ; "marker_1" setMarkerPolyline _return;
