[Q] Menu vector/Any?

Recommended Posts

Harry11223344

How can I use Vector/Any as a menu entry? The code below doesn't work as it doesn't accept vector value's to populate the menu.

static struct {		LPCSTR		text;		bool		*pState;		bool		*pUpdated;	} lines[lineCount] = {		{ ENTITY::GET_ENTITY_COORDS(PLAYER::PLAYER_PED_ID(), false), NULL, NULL }	};

How would I use vector/Any to populate the menu?

for example if you want it in this format... "X: # Y: # Z: #"

 

 

LPCSTR menuText = ("X: " + std::to_string(vector.x) + " Y: " + std::to_string(vector.y) + " Z: " + std::vector(vector.z)).c_str();

 

i build a std::string because concatenation is easy with + operator and then convert to const char* which is same thing as LPCSTR (long pointer to constant string)

// allocate 128-byte bufferconst char strVec[128];// format string (floats should print with 6 decimal places)sprintf(&strVec, "X: %.6f, Y: %.6f, Z: %.6f\n", vector.x, vector.y, vector.z);// now 'strVec' has your formatted string, and should be able to be converted to LPCSTR! 

Why not do this instead?

Yeah, I started out with C# as well. I've noticed a lot of people tend to mix up C# practices with C++ and vice versa. Things can get really messy :p

You could, but it's recommended that you use the standard libraries in C++. Also, I can't remember, but I believe sprintf is deprecated.
