The "state" context provides access to overall state information that pertains to the portfolio as a whole or general information about the evaluation cycle.
From within a "state" context, you can utilize the following set of valid context transitions:
-None- There are no transitions from within a state context.
The "state" context is a general context that maintains information outside the normal data hierarchy. The target references for this context span a wide range of details that may prove useful within your scripts. The complete list of target references for the "state" context is presented in the table below.
isfocus (Right, Number) Returns non-zero if a focus pick has been properly established via the "setfocus" target reference.
Example: result = state.isfocus
clearfocus (Right, Number) Clears any focus pick that has been established and resets to a state where there is no focus pick.
Example: perform state.clearfocus
timing (Right, String) Returns the phase and priority timing during which the current script is being invoked in an effort to simplify debugging of data files.
Example: result = state.timing
iscreate (Right, Number) Returns non-zero if the character is currently in creation mode.
Example: result = state.iscreate
isadvance (Right, Number) Returns non-zero if the character is currently in advancement mode.
Example: result = state.isadvance
issell (Right, Number) Returns non-zero if the user is currently in the midst of a sell transaction.
Example: result = state.issell
isload (Right, Number) Returns non-zero if the loading of a saved portfolio is currently in progress.
Example: result = state.isload
isoutput (Right, Number) Returns non-zero if the rendering of character sheet output is currently in progress.
Example: result = state.isoutput
isdossierstyle[style] (Right, Number) Returns whether the user selected text output to be formatted in the style given by the style parameter. The style parameter must be one of the following values: "plain", "html", or "bbcode".
Example: result = state.isdossierstyle[html]
istext (Right, Number) Returns non-zero if the render of text output is currently in progress.
Example: result = state.istext
iscombat (Right, Number) Returns non-zero if combat mode is currently enabled within the Tactical Console.
Example: result = state.iscombat
isendturn (Right, Number) Returns non-zero if all combatants have taken their allotted actions and it is valid to end the current combat turn.
Example: result = state.isendturn
combatturn (Right, Number) Returns the current combat turn that is underway within the Tactical Console.
Example: result = state.combatturn
initchange (Right, Number) Returns non-zero if any actor has a user-modified initiative value.
Example: result = state.initchange
actorcount (Right, Number) Returns the total number of actors within the portfolio, including all minions.
Example: result = state.actorcount
reload[table] (Right, Number) Forces a re-load and re-sort of the table portal whose id is given by the table parameter. This target reference is only accessible from within a Trigger Script.
Example: result = state.reload[myportal]
setrandom[id,cnt] (Right, Number) Creates a new set of random values with the given id. The set contains the integer values zero through cnt-1, with the values being in a random sequence. The set of values is globally defined, outside the scope of any actors, and it is persistent. The state of the set will be saved with the portfolio and restored on a reload. The value returned is always zero.
Example: result = state.setrandom[setid,42]
NOTE! This mechanism makes it possible to simulate set-based behaviors, such as a deck of cards. The other target references beginning with the "set" prefix below are used in conjunction with this set.
setextract[id] (Right, Number) Extracts and returns the next value from the set with the given id, which must already be created. If there are no values left within the set, a run-time error is reported and the value zero is returned.
Example: result = state.setextract[setid]
setremain[id] (Right, Number) Returns the number of values that remain within the set with the given id.
Example: result = state.setremain[setid]
setdiscard[id,val] (Right, Number) Locates the value val within the set with the given id and discards it from the set. Once discarded, the set behaves as if the value no longer exists within the set.
Example: result = state.setdiscard[setid,42]
