Examples

This method hooks into the BlockBreakEvent event and sends a message to the player who broke the block.

plugin.registerEvent("BlockBreakEvent", function(e)
e:getPlayer():sendMessage("You broke a block")
end)

This next example allows the player to execute the command /inspect in order to be placed into a table. Once placed in this table, the player will not be able to break blocks and instead will receive information on the block that was broken. The same command can be run again to disable this feature.

-- Imports
material = import("$.Material")
color = newInstance("#.wrappers.ChatColorWrapper", {plugin.getPlugin()})
-- An inspect command with an event to tell what a block is
inspecters = {}
-- Add the command
local inspectCommand = plugin.addCommand({name="inspect"}, function(cmd)
local sender = cmd.getSender()
-- Make sure it's a player sending the command
if not cmd.isPlayerSender() then
sender:sendMessage(color.DARK_RED:toString() .. "Only players can run this command!")
return
end
-- Go through every inspector and check if any equals this players uuid
for k,v in pairs(inspecters) do
if v == sender:getUniqueId() then
-- Remove them from inspectors and tell them
table.remove(inspecters, k)
sender:sendMessage(color.YELLOW .. "You are no longer an inspector")
return
end
end
-- Else, add them and tell them
table.insert(inspecters, sender:getUniqueId())
sender:sendMessage(color.YELLOW .. "You are now an inspector")
end)
-- Add the event
plugin.registerEvent("BlockBreakEvent", function(e)
-- Go through every inspector and check if any equals this players uuid
for _,v in pairs(inspecters) do
if v == e:getPlayer():getUniqueId() then
-- Tell them the block
e:getPlayer():sendMessage(color.AQUA .. "That is " .. color.GOLD .. e:getBlock():getType():name())
e:setCancelled(true)
break
end
end
end)
