Creating a custom event¶
The first thing you want to do is create your class. The lower-case name of
the class will be used as the name of the event. Inside the class, you will
need to declare the event variables by the type they are (using classes from
from events.custom import CustomEvent from events.variable import FloatVariable from events.variable import ShortVariable from events.variable import StringVariable # Create the event's class class My_New_Event(CustomEvent): # Declare the variables with their type userid = ShortVariable('The userid of the player involved in the event.') pos_x = FloatVariable('The x value of some location in the event.') pos_y = FloatVariable('The y value of some location in the event.') pos_z = FloatVariable('The z value of some location in the event.') weapon = StringVariable('The weapon used in the event.')
The next step is to create the resource file and load the events. For more
information, look to the
from events.resource import ResourceFile resource_file = ResourceFile('my_custom_events', My_New_Event) resource_file.write() resource_file.load_events()
The last step is actually using your custom event class to fire the event. You can do this one of two ways. First, just create an instance, set the variables, then fire the event.
# Create the event event_instance = My_New_Event() # Set the variable values event_instance.userid = 2 event_instance.pos_x = 1.111 event_instance.pos_y = 2.222 event_instance.pos_z = 3.333 event_instance.weapon = 'weapon_knife' # Fire the event event_instance.fire()
The other way, is to set the variables on instantiation.
# Create the event and define the variable values on instantiation event_instance = My_New_Event(userid=2, pos_x=1.111, pos_y=2.222, pos_z=3.333, weapon='weapon_knife') # Fire the event event_instance.fire()
You can also use context management to automatically fire the event on exit.
# Create the event and fire on exit with My_New_Event() as event_instance: # Define the event variable values event_instance.userid = 2 event_instance.pos_x = 1.111 event_instance.pos_y = 2.222 event_instance.pos_z = 3.333 event_instance.weapon = 'weapon_knife'
