So, I found a plugin here that I liked called: Generic_Chat_Miniwindow by Fiendish.

I decided to incorporate it into the Utility Plugin I am creating so that I can stop explaining to people how to set it up.

I have added the chattrigger script directly to the plugin and am trying to use:

<triggers>
  <trigger
   enabled="y"
   group="CommunicationTest"
   keep_evaluating="y"
   match="^You are a member of the (.+) race\.$"
   regexp="y"
   send_to="12"
   sequence="100"
  >
  <send>CallPlugin ("f6812fbbea7ca2d1a7476970", "chattrigger", "%0")</send>
  </trigger>
</triggers>


as the trigger to send to the script.

The ChatTrigger function I have edited to be


function chattrigger (name, line, wildcards, styles)
    require "serialize"

--    check (CallPlugin ("f6812fbbea7ca2d1a7476970", 
--                       "display", serialize.save_simple (styles)))

	display (serialize.save_simple(styles))

end -- chattrigger

so that the Plugin was not calling the plugin. I just skipped the callplugin line and went straight to the source. When I attempted to use Check(display.....) it gave me an error of:

Error number: 0
Event:        Run-time error
Description:  C:\Program Files (x86)\MUSHclient\lua\check.lua:24: bad argument #2 to 'format' (number expected, got nil)

stack traceback:

	[C]: in function 'format'

	C:\Program Files (x86)\MUSHclient\lua\check.lua:24: in function 'check'

	[string "Plugin: Dead_of_Night_Basic"]:7: in function <[string "Plugin: Dead_of_Night_Basic"]:1>
Called by:    Function/Sub: chattrigger called by trigger

Reason: processing trigger "" when matching line: "You gossips (ooc) 'test'"


However, after i remove the check() it works fine for the triggers inside of the plugin. However, the triggers that I made outside of the plugin e.g. the example above, it gives me

Error number: 0
Event:        Run-time error
Description:  C:\Program Files (x86)\MUSHclient\lua\serialize.lua:233: Cannot serialize nil

stack traceback:

	[C]: in function 'error'

	C:\Program Files (x86)\MUSHclient\lua\serialize.lua:233: in function 'save_item_simple'

	C:\Program Files (x86)\MUSHclient\lua\serialize.lua:90: in function 'save_simple'

	[string "Plugin: Dead_of_Night_Basic"]:7: in function <[string "Plugin: Dead_of_Night_Basic"]:1>
Called by:    Function/Sub: chattrigger called by Plugin Dead_of_Night_Basic

Reason: Executing plugin Dead_of_Night_Basic sub chattrigger


I'm open to any help that you may be able to provide so that I can finish this utility plugin.

Thanks,

The check function (not Check) is designed for the MUSHclient functions that return error codes - which is most but not all of them. It simply checks if the error code is zero (which is OK) and if not looks up the error number in a table and shows the appropriate error.

It isn't designed to be used with any old function that someone writes.

Can you show an example of doing that please?

Your function "chattrigger" looks like it is supposed to be called from the trigger (as the trigger script) but the trigger you posted is not calling it that way.

I think you are confusing a couple of different techniques here.

Is there a way to have the TriggerScript call a scriptfunction that's within a Plugin? I didn't think that was possible.

However, if it is, then I can get this working easier.

Within a plugin triggers (that are in the plugin) can call scripts that are in the same plugin.
