Hi!
I've got a script from somebody else which arranges linked prims in one line by the same distance to each other
(for example for linking letters to a word in one regular line).

I would like the script to be more automatic by adding a dialog offering a "+" and "-" choice.
"+" would mean that the distance between the linked prims should increase by a given value,
"-" should make the distance decrease.
(You could also add "++" and "--" for double-steps etc.)

The dialog menu should stay open until the user deliberately closes it,
so that the user can add as many plus and/or minus can be added as he/she wishes.

Unfortunately, this seems to be beyond my scripting skills.
Does any of you maybe have an idea of how to do this?

You can find the scripts below.

default
{
    state_entry()
    {
        vector size = llGetScale();
        float distance = 1.0;
        integer i;
        integer n = llGetNumberOfPrims();
        for (i = 1; i < n; ++i)
            llSetLinkPrimitiveParamsFast(i + 1, [PRIM_POS_LOCAL, <0.0, i * (size.y + distance), 0.0>]);
    }
}

The dialog could start like this:

key user;

default
{
touch_start(integer num)
{
user = llDetectedKey(0);
llDialog(user , "Add as much distance between the prims as you like:" , ["+" , "-" ] , 0);
llListen(0, "", user, "");
}
    listen(integer chan, string name, key id, string msg)
    {
        if (msg == "+")
		...

	if (msg == "-")
		...
}

Thank you very much in advance.

hi hi Test,

please give this script a try



float default_distance = 0.5;


key user;
float distance;
integer listenhandle;
setdistance()
{
    llOwnerSay("disctance set to: "+(string)distance);
    vector size = llGetScale();
    integer i;
    integer n = llGetNumberOfPrims();
    for (i = 1; i < n; ++i)
    {
        llSetLinkPrimitiveParamsFast(i + 1, [PRIM_POS_LOCAL, <0.0, i * (size.y + distance), 0.0>]);
    }
}

dialog(key us)
{
    llDialog(user , "Add as much distance between the prims as you like:" , ["- 0.1","- 0.5","- 1.0","+ 0.1" ,"+ 0.5","+ 1.0","Reset","Cancel"] , -12345);
}

default
{
    state_entry()
    {
        distance = default_distance;
    }
    touch_start(integer num)
    {
        user = llDetectedKey(0);
        dialog(user);
        listenhandle = llListen(-12345, "", user, "");
        llSetTimerEvent(30);
    }
    listen(integer chan, string name, key id, string msg)
    {
        llSetTimerEvent(30);
        if(llGetSubString(msg,0,0)=="-")
        {
            distance = distance - (float)llGetSubString(msg,2,4);
            setdistance();
            dialog(user);
        }
        else if(llGetSubString(msg,0,0)=="+")
        {
            distance = distance + (float)llGetSubString(msg,2,4);
            setdistance();
            dialog(user);
        }
        if (msg == "Reset")
        {
            distance = default_distance;
            setdistance();
        }
    }
    timer()
    {
        llListenRemove(listenhandle);
    }
}

enjoy and regards
