Summary

Function: llOwnerSay( string msg );

Says msg to the object's owner only, if the owner is currently in the same region.

• string msg message to be transmitted

Caveats

  • If msg is longer than 1024 bytes, it will be truncated to 1024 bytes. This can convey 1024 ASCII characters, or fewer if non-ASCII are present.
  • Silently fails ~45 seconds after the owner leaves the region the object is in.
  • Silently fails when the object to which the script is attached is deeded to a group.
  • Some viewers do not display llOwnerSay text when msg is empty ("").
  • Produces swirly particle effects for the owner (who sees the message) but these effects do not appear to be visible to other avatars (who don't).

Useful Snippets

// llOwnerSay extension for preventing silent failures
// paste this code at the top of the script and replace
// any calls to llOwnerSay with uOwnerSayPlus
 
uOwnerSayPlus(string inputString)
{
    key owner = llGetOwner();
 
    // single owner that the region still has a handle for
    if (llKey2Name(owner))
    {
        llOwnerSay(inputString);
    }
    // group owned, must send the message publicly
    else if (llList2Key(llGetObjectDetails(llGetKey(), [OBJECT_GROUP]), 0) == owner)
    {
        llWhisper(0, "/me : " + inputString);
    }
    // single owner, not present, send them an IM
    else
    {
        llInstantMessage(owner, inputString);
    }
}
