Description

Constant: integer PRIM_TEXT = 26;

The integer constant PRIM_TEXT has the value 26

Used to get or set the object's floating text.

llSetPrimitiveParams

llSetPrimitiveParams([ PRIM_TEXT, string text, vector color, float alpha ]);
• string text floating text to display
• vector color color in RGB <R, G, B> (<0.0, 0.0, 0.0> = black, <1.0, 1.0, 1.0> = white)
• float alpha from 0.0 (clear) to 1.0 (solid) (0.0 <= alpha <= 1.0)

Syntax for: llSetPrimitiveParams, llSetLinkPrimitiveParams & llSetLinkPrimitiveParamsFast

llGetPrimitiveParams

llGetPrimitiveParams([ PRIM_TEXT ]);

Returns the list [ string text, vector color, float alpha ]

• string text floating text displayed
• vector color color in RGB <R, G, B> (<0.0, 0.0, 0.0> = black, <1.0, 1.0, 1.0> = white)
• float alpha from 0.0 (clear) to 1.0 (solid) (0.0 <= alpha <= 1.0)

Syntax for: llGetPrimitiveParams, llGetLinkPrimitiveParams

Caveats

  • Do not rely on Floating Text as a storage medium; it is neither secure nor finalized.
    • Floating text has been altered in past server updates, breaking existing content; future changes may occur.
    • Even "invisible"[1] floating text is transmitted to the client.
      • It can be viewed by anyone with a client that is capable of rendering text that is supposed to be invisible.
      • The network packets that contain the text can be sniffed and the text read.
