Hello! I haven't yet worked out how to make triggers in any way interact with MXP. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Here is a sample line from my MUD:
.[4z<Green>.[4z<b>(.[4z<talker>Channel.[4z</talker>) Someone wisps: Testing!.[3z.[4z<BR>

I'd like a way to make a trigger fire on colours like <Green> or <C #AF1E2D>. This is for when I want to check that a line is a certain colour, and also for when I'm matching only on colour.

I'd also like to be able to match specific tags like <talker>, which I assume will be very similiar to matching <Green>.

Thanks!

I gave that a go, and thought I was barking up the wrong tree. When using the OnPluginMXPcloseTag and the OnPluginMXPcloseTag functions provided on that page, everything (both the tag name and the arguments/text) seems to be passed to the function as the 'name' argument. For instance:
Closing tag: green,(Channel) Someone wisps: Testing.
Text: No text


or

Opening tag: send,expire='Exits'
Argument list: No arguments


What am I doing wrong?

Maybe the documentation is slightly wrong. I found this in another post:





OnPluginMXPstart
OnPluginMXPstop
OnPluginMXPopenTag
OnPluginMXPcloseTag
OnPluginMXPsetVariable
OnPluginMXPerror




OnPluginMXPopenTag

It seems that in the case of OnPluginMXPopenTag it the callback expects a single argument in the form:

name,arguments

In other words, you would get something like this:

sound,FName="mm_door_open.*" V=100 L=1 P=50 T="misc"

Thus you could use Split to break up the line into "sound" and the arguments, and then proceed much the same as before.


OnPluginMXPcloseTag

Just to complete the documentation, in the case of OnPluginMXPcloseTag you get the tag name followed by the text of the tag. eg.

<b>Hi there</b>

In this case the close tag for "b" would have as its argument:

b,Hi there


OnPluginMXPsetVariable

For OnPluginMXPsetVariable the argument is variable name=value, eg.

RoomName=Red Square


OnPluginMXPerror

For OnPluginMXPerror the argument is:

level,number,line_number,message

eg.

I,10008,417,MXP mode change from 'open' to 'permanently secure'
