This object represents a token instance placed in a token container. Token instances are based on token prototypes that define the bitmap used for the token. A token container can contain several instances of one prototype.

By default, token instances can be manipulated by the host and all clients. The token container may be locked, in which case vectors may be drawn out from the token by the clients to indicate movement requests. Tokens can also be toggled non-modifiable which disallows client interaction altogether.

Tokens flagged targetable can be clicked by players to indicate they are targeting the corresponding token. Several clients can target one token.

Token instances do not have direct scripting function definitions, but use a handler based notification scheme. Care should be taken to unregister handlers whenever the objects containing the handler script are destroyed.



Interface

addUnderlay

function addUnderlay( size, color, [mode] )

Add an underlay to the token. Underlays are colored areas drawn based on the grid squares below the token. The size of underlays is given in squares and is measured as a radius from the token centre to the grid square centres. Thus, an equal value as the underlay size will result in a different sized overlay area based on whether the token is situated at a grid square centre or a grid line intersection.

Only scripts running on the session host can set this property.

Parameters

size(number)
The size of the underlay in grid squares
color(string)
The color of the underlay, in the form '#aarrggbb' where 'aa' represents the transparency (alpha) of the desired color. If alpha is zero or not defined, FF is assumed.
mode(string)[optional]
If this string contains the substring "gmonly", this overlay will be displayed on the host only. If the string contains the substring "hover", the overlay will only be drawn when the mouse cursor is hovering over the token. The flags can be combined.

onActivation

handler function onActivation( target )

This handler is called when the target token is activated.

Parameters

target(tokeninstance)
The tokeninstance triggering the event

onClickDown

handler function onClickDown( target, button, image )

This function is called when a mouse button is pressed down on the token. If this function is not defined or returns false, the onClickRelease function is not called.

Warning
The token interface for click events is different than other objects in that a handler must be registered to intercept click events.

Parameters

target(tokeninstance)
The tokeninstance triggering the event

image(imagecontrol)
The imagecontrol object in which the token was clicked.

Return values

(boolean)
This function should return true if it handled the event and the processing of the event should be stopped. A value of false indicates that the default framework functionality for the this particular control should not be executed, but the processing should continue for the element below this control, if any. A return value of nil (or the absence of a return statement) indicates that the framework should continue handling the event normally.

onClickRelease

handler function onClickRelease( target, button, image )

This function is called when a mouse button is released, if the cursor was not moved after the click down event. If the control did not process the click down event, this function is not called.

Warning
The token interface for click events is different than other objects in that a handler must be registered to intercept click events.

Parameters

target(tokeninstance)
The tokeninstance triggering the event
button(number)
Returns a numerical value indicating the button pressed (1 = left, 2 = middle, 4 = button 4, 5 = button 5). Right button is used for radial menus.
image(imagecontrol)
The imagecontrol object in which the token was clicked.

Return values

(boolean)
This function should return true if it handled the event and the processing of the event should be stopped. A value of false indicates that the default framework functionality for the this particular control should not be executed, but the processing should continue for the element below this control, if any. A return value of nil (or the absence of a return statement) indicates that the framework should continue handling the event normally.

This function is called when the left mouse button is pressed down twice in succession on the token. Note that if this function is present and returns nil, the onClickDown function is called as well.

Warning
The token interface for click events is different than other objects in that a handler must be registered to intercept click events.

Parameters

target(tokeninstance)
The tokeninstance triggering the event

onDragEnd

handler function onDragEnd( target, dragdata )

This function is called when the mouse is released at the end of a drag operation that started on the token. The dragdata object is first passed to the onDrop handler in the receiving control, which can set properties in the dragdata object that notify this control of the events.

A return value of nil (or the absence of a return statement) indicates that the framework should continue handling the event normally.

onDrop

handler function onDrop( target, dragdata )

...
A variable amount of number parameters, depending on the menu hierarchy depth of the selected item. A first level menu item will contain one number, identifying the slot it occupies on the menu. A second level item will contain two numbers, with the first specifying the submenu position, and the second the position of the item in the submenu. See registerMenuItem for more information.

This handler is called when target information for this token changes.

Parameters

source(tokeninstance)
The tokeninstance triggering the event
target(tokeninstance)
The tokeninstance of the target token.
status(boolean)
Current target status. True if targeted; false if not.

onTargetedUpdate

Warning
The token interface for wheel events is different than other objects in that a handler must be registered to intercept click events.

Parameters

target(tokeninstance)
The tokeninstance triggering the event
notches(number)
This number specifies the number of notches the wheel was spun. Typically one notch corresponds to one adjustment step on the wheel.

Return values

(boolean)
This function should return true if it handled the event and the processing of the event should be stopped. A value of false indicates that the default framework functionality for the this particular control should not be executed, but the processing should continue for the element below this control, if any. A return value of nil (or the absence of a return statement) indicates that the framework should continue handling the event normally.

registerMenuItem

function registerMenuItem( label, icon, ... )

This function registers a new user defined menu item. If the user selects the item, the script is notified of this through the onMenuSelection handler, if registered.

The menu item is defined by specifying the bitmap and label to use, as well as the position of the item on the menu. The position is given as a number value. To define entries in submenus, use multiple number values, with the first being the position value of the outermost submenu, and the last being the position of the actual menu item in the innermost submenu.

Trying to redefine an existing menu item will fail.
