SetLocalFloat(object, string, float)

Store a float as a local variable within an object.

void SetLocalFloat(
    object oObject,
    string sVarName,
    float fValue
);

Parameters

oObject

Target object to store local variable in.

sVarName

Unique variable name.

fValue

Variable being stored in local object.


Description

Stores fValue as a local float within oObject using the variable name sVarName. The parameter sVarName is a unique string identifying a single local variable. Using the same value for sVarName in subsequent calls will overwrite the original value.



Remarks

As with all locals, there seems to be no size limit to sVarName, however, anything over 50 characters is probably a bit extreme.

There is no way to set a local vector, however, vectors are merely a set of 3 floats, defining positions X, Y and Z. To set a local vector position, you can easily set them to local floats, however, SetLocalLocation is probably a quicker and easier method.


Known Bugs

None.

Example

// demonstrates syntax for SetLocalFloat
void main()
{
     object oThis = OBJECT_SELF;
     string sKey = "foo";
     float fValue = 20.0;
     SetLocalFloat(oThis, sKey, fValue);
}
