CallFunctionNoWait - ScriptObject
From Creation Kit
Member of: ScriptObject Script
Calls a function on this script asynchronously. Script execution continues immediately without waiting for the function you called to finish (or even start).
Function CallFunctionNoWait(string asFuncName, Var aParams) native
- asFuncName: The name of the function to call
- aParams: The list of parameters to pass
; Call "Function LaunchFirework(int aHeight, float aTimer, Form aBaseObject)" on the "FourthOfJuly" script ; We use CastAs to make sure we don't depend on the script we want to call the function on ScriptObject celebration = CelebrationForm.CastAs("FourthOfJuly") Var params = new Var params = 10 params = 11.0 ; Note the '.0' to make this a float params = RedBurst as Form ; Must cast as form by hand, even though explosion is derived from form celebration.CallFunctionNoWait("LaunchFirework", params) params = 15 params = BlueBurst as Form celebration.CallFunctionNoWait("LaunchFirework", params) ; Now we have two copies of LaunchFirework running in parallel with us, each with different parameters
- If the function name don't exist, the function will error. You may want to check for the existence of the mod you want to talk to before using this.
- The parameter types must match exactly. You cannot insert a float into the param array if the function expects an int, or a Actor if the function expects an ObjectReference. Normally the compiler would do these casts for you in a normal function call, but it doesn't know what the parameters are, so it is your responsibility to match them up.
- The compiler cannot check the function name or parameters for you, so make sure to triple check everything!
- If you need the return value from the function you'll have to use CallFunction instead.
