Add on tool for MLPV2 that puts a button on the MLPV2 menu that, when clicked, gives a user an object that you wish them to use with an animation.

By Chaz Longstaff, June 2008.

Steps to use:
1) Copy and paste everything below the double-line into a script called, for the sake of argument, "~give" (the script name is actually irrelevant; you may call it kumquat if you wish;)
2) Drop the script into the prim where you have the rest of the MLPV2 scripts;
3) Add the object that you wish to give out. Usually, it is either a prim object, or clothing. Note that this object to be given out needs to have both copy and transfer permissions set on it;
4) Add to the menu in an MLPV2 menu notecard the following line:

LINKMSG MyButtonName | 1,LINK_ALL,987789,NameOfObjectToOffer##MsgToPerson

In the above line, there are three elements for you to customize as appropriate:
MyButtonName -- the wording that you want to appear for the button on the blue menu
NameOfObjectToOffer -- the name of the object you are offering
MsgToPerson -- A message to be instant messaged to the person being offered the item, so they know what it is for, and don't think it's a random spammer or griefer passing by, etc.

Note that NameOfObjectToOffer and MsgToPerson are separated by a ## separator.

What you don't need to change in the above sample line:
1 -- means whether to make the MLPV2 menu go away or not -- generally set it to 1 as per the example, as otherwise the user might not see the accept prompt for the inventory being given
LINK_ALL -- no real reason generally to ever change this, though you may as you wish
987789 -- don't change this, this is the communication channel

//Function: gives object to someone on an MLPV2 ball
//in a menu card, format a menu button like this, for example:
//LINKMSG Give Book | 1,LINK_ALL,987789,little book(wear)##Wear This
//In this example, Give Book is the button name
//1 means whether to make the MLPV2 menu go away or not.
//Generally set it to 1 as per the example, as otherwise the user
//might not see the accept prompt for the inventory being given
//LINK_ALL -- no real reason to ever change this
//987789 -- don't change this, this is the communication channel
//little book(wear)##Wear This -- this is the item to give,
//followed by a message to be instant messaged to the recipient
//of the object. It's good to include a msg, so that they don't just think
//it's a griefer trying to hand them something. Notice that the object to give,
//and the accompanying msg, are separated by ##
//parameters string ObjectToGive; string message; //_________________________ default{ link_message(integer from, integer num, string str, key id) { if (num == 987789) { list TempList = llParseStringKeepNulls(str,["##"],[]); ObjectToGive = llStringTrim(llList2String(TempList, 0),STRING_TRIM); message = llStringTrim(llList2String(TempList, 1),STRING_TRIM); if ( ( llGetInventoryType(ObjectToGive) != INVENTORY_NONE) && ( llGetInventoryPermMask(ObjectToGive, MASK_NEXT) & PERM_COPY) && ( llGetInventoryPermMask(ObjectToGive, MASK_NEXT) & PERM_COPY) ) { if (message != "") { llInstantMessage(id,message + " " + ObjectToGive); } llGiveInventory(id,ObjectToGive); } } //end of if check for the right channel }//end link_message event } //end default state
