Summary

Function: llTextBox( key avatar, string message, integer channel );

Shows a dialog box on avatar's screen with the text message. It contains a text box for input, any text that is entered is said on channel when the "OK" button is clicked.

• key avatar avatar UUID that is in the same region
• string message Text to display in the message box
• integer channel output chat channel, any integer value
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

  • This function causes the script to sleep for 1.0 seconds.
  • Messages sent on channel zero[1] and DEBUG_CHANNEL are throttled to a rate of <200/10sec, per region, per owner/user.
    • Once the rate is exceeded, all following messages on channel zero or DEBUG_CHANNEL will be dropped until the send rate is again below 200/10sec for the previous 10 sec. Dropped messages, despite being dropped still count against the limit.
  • There is no way by script to kill a text box.
  • There is no way for the script to detect if the user clicked the small "ignore" button (no chat is generated as a result of pressing this button).
  • If the listening prim is out of the 20 meter range of the sending prim when the "OK" button is pressed, it will not be able to hear the response.
    • This limitation affects attachments too if the wearer moves more than 20 meters from where the listener is located.

       integer channel = ~(integer)llFrand(1000.0);
       listener = llListen(channel,"","","");
       llTextBox(llDetectedKey(0),"Write something here...",channel);
   }
   
   listen(integer channel, string name, key id, string message)

       llSay(0,"You wrote: " + message);
