Floating variable
 
I believe i need a different type of variable to capture and translate this capture to show a number value... If someone knows a way to do that could you please show me an example?


^Hp~: ~|----------*~| Gp~: ~|*----------~| Gxp~: ~|----*----------------~| P~:(%w)$

need 3 different variables to mark the position of the asterisk, so the capture can be changed from "---*-----" to 0-100%

thanks in advance, and much appreciated!!!

You'll want to work with %pos then. You could construct a trigger like such:

Code:

#TRIGGER {^Hp~: ~|(*)~| Gp~: ~|(*)~| Gxp~: ~|(*)~| P~:(%w)$} {$HpPos = %pos("*", %1);$GpPos = %pos("*", %2); $GxpPos = %pos("*", %3)}


The value returned for each %pos will be where the * is at on the line graph. For instance:

Quote:
----*----


will return a value of 5 for the *.

Then you can do what you need to do with the variables.

hrrrm , seems to allow a fatal looping when i tried it on my client. is there a way to no capture it that way, because there are several things in the mud that use Hp: or Sp: and the like... so i think it's seeing any of those, and looping.

also if i wanted to set the variables to HpPos to say 1-10 = 0-100% how would i do that heh...
