Description

Event: listen( integer channel, string name, key id, string message ){ ; }

Trigged by chat, use llListen to enable and filter

• integer channel
• string name
• key id
• string message
Channel Constant Description
DEBUG_CHANNEL 0x7FFFFFFF Chat channel reserved for script debugging and error messages, broadcasts to all nearby users.
PUBLIC_CHANNEL 0x0 Chat channel that broadcasts to all nearby users. This channel is sometimes referred to as: open chat, local chat and public chat.

Caveats

  • On state change all listens are released (on script reset as well).
  • When an object changes owner any listen registered with llGetOwner will not automatically update itself. The scripter needs to capture this event (on_rez and CHANGED_OWNER).

Examples

// says beep whenever owner says something in main chat;
default
{
    state_entry()
    {//Registers the listen to the owner of the object at the moment of the call. This does not automatically update when the owner changes.
        llListen(0, "", llGetOwner(), "");
    }
    listen( integer channel, string name, key id, string message ){
        llOwnerSay("beep");
    }
    on_rez(integer param)
    {//Triggered when the object is rezed, like after the object had been sold from a vendor
        llResetScript();//By resetting the script on rez it forces the listen to re-register.
    }
    changed(integer mask)
    {//Triggered when the object has been sold as "original" from in world.
        if(mask & CHANGED_OWNER)
        {
            llResetScript();
        }
    }
}
// says beep whenever owner says something in main chat;

//Does not use a hard reset to re-register it's listen.
integer handle;

reset()
{
    llListenRemove(handle);
    handle = llListen(0, "", llGetOwner(), "");
}

default
{
    state_entry()
    {//Registers the listen to the owner of the object at the moment of the call. This does not automatically update when the owner changes.
        reset();
    }
    listen( integer channel, string name, key id, string message ){
        llOwnerSay("beep");
    }
    on_rez(integer param)
    {//Triggered when the object is rezed, like after the object had been sold from a vendor
        reset();
    }
    changed(integer mask)
    {//Triggered when the object has been sold as "original" from in world.
        if(mask & CHANGED_OWNER)
        {
            reset();
