Description

This makes a note in the output window. It is not transmitted to the world. It is useful for making comments to yourself. The note is NOT automatically terminated by a newline, so you can use Tell multiple times on one line (eg. to change colour in mid-line).

The note appears in the current NoteColour (a custom colour), or in the RGB colours selected by NoteColourFore and NoteColourBack.

You can also choose colours with NoteColourRGB and NoteColourName.

A new line will automatically be started by output from the MUD, or a command that you type being echoed to the output window. You can send a new line yourself by sending vbCRLF (in Visual Basic) or \n in Jscript or Perlscript.

To make changes to the text style (eg. bold, underline) see NoteStyle.


VBscript example

world.tell "This monster is worth avoiding!"


Jscript example

world.tell("This monster is worth avoiding!");


PerlScript example

$world->tell("This monster is worth avoiding!");


Python example

world.tell("This monster is worth avoiding!")


Lua example

Tell ("This monster is worth avoiding!")


Lua notes

You can supply multiple arguments, which are concatenated together.

Nothing.
