- Sets string representation of an object to a custom string.
When a vehicle is created and named in the editor, the name becomes both the variable containing the vehicle object and the string representation of the vehicle object. In scripts an extra step is needed to achieve the same effect - see Example 1.
- Object Manipulation
- Example 1:
- private _playersCar = vehicle player; systemChat str _playersCar; // displays e.g "ce06b00# 164274: offroad_01_unarmed_f.p3d" _playersCar setVehicleVarName "MyOffroad"; systemChat str _playersCar; // displays "MyOffroad" isNil "MyOffroad"; // true - the MyOffroad variable is not set MyOffroad = _playersCar; // now it is publicVariable "MyOffroad"; // broadcasts it over the network
- Example 2:
- _offroad setVehicleVarName ""; // Reset string representation to the default value
