JASS: So You Want to Learn JASS?

JASS:
"TRIGSTR_076"


That would be your text. You can replace that with whatever text you entered in the GUI function.
 
So,it is normal that jass won't remember a message created by map creator?

OK,thanks for the answer,you solved it...
 
GUI messages are stored (for some unknown reason) in a separate file in the map.
TRIGSTR_## can reference those strings.

So the message is there. The map will work fine, and the string will be displayed.
It's just not in the code.

Feel free to replace that TRIGSTR_076 with your message.
 
Mui?

I've been a programmer a long time, I've never seen the acronym "MUI" mean anything in particular. What is this supposed to stand for? (it's used in the original post and within the thread)
 
Multiple Unit Instance-able?

means you have can multiple units use the same spell without it bugging (due to overwritten variables and such)

MPI is multiple player

so you can have 2 different units owned by 2 different players use it without bugging, (if its not MUI then, 2 units owned by the same player would bug)

if something is MUI, its also MPI

tyvm. Sounds like a lot of gotchas in JASS, just like I've heard ;)
 
You should null all your local variables(except integer, real, string, boolean) at the end of function.
 
do local variables leak? sorry im new.

Genereally, yes...
Though there are different ways of dealing with these 'leaks', but as good as all variables needs to be nulled ( [ljass]= null[/ljass] )except (As Jedi said) integers, reals, booleans and strings :D

And just as in GUI, you also need to do stuff as [ljass]call RemoveLocation(> Location variable here <)[/ljass] in certain variable-types :D
 
Actually, that list is incomplete of things you don't have to null.

You don't need to null:
Players
Triggers (except triggers that you will later destroy)
Anything that you know 100% will never be destroyed

And I should mention globals don't have to be nulled.

    News portal has been retired. Main page of site goes to Headline News forum now
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am working on getting access to the old news portal under a different URL for those that would rather use that for news before we get a different news view.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Easily done
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    https://www.thehelper.net/pages/news/ is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hmm
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    What do you think Tom?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
