I have a full perm tracking script, that I would like to use to have a spotlight follow a specific avatar. I only run into the issue that I get the script error message " llDialog: button labels must be 24 or fewer characters long" when a specific avatar with a long name is around. 

here below the script. I tried to find a workaround on this forum, but I'm totally not familiar with scripting, and I have no clue where to changfe things so the LLDialog button would shorten the name. So I'm hoping anyone can offer me the solution for it.

    string msg = llDumpList2String(buttons, "\n");
    while(llGetListLength(buttons) % 3 != 0)
    { buttons = llListInsertList(buttons , [" "], gStride);
    }
    if (gPos >= gStride)
    { buttons += ["PREVIOUS"];

There are several solutions to your immediate problem, including simply truncating the names so they are all fewer than 24 characters long.  Actually, the practical limit is really 12, not 24, because a label longer than 12 characters won't fit on a button anyway, even if the system accepts it. The best solution -- said with no modesty -- is this one:

Once you get past that small issue, though, you should start to learn about how to handle lists and loops so that you don't need to have those repetitive lines of

string X = llList2String(Y, 0);

Your whole script can be shortened by about 90%.  Take a look at http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/List and http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Category:LSL_Flow_Control.

it's not my own script, and I'm totally not familiar with scripting. I would be very thankful if anyone could show me where to change or adapt this script so I don't get that error anymore 🙂

            names = names + llDetectedName(i);
        } 

 

 

 

the simple fix for the button problem is:

names = names + llGetSubString(llDetectedName(i), 0, 11);
