bool Function IsChild(Location akOther) native
- akOther: The other location to look at.
Returns if the other location is a child of this one.
; Is my house a child of the Batooine location? if (BatooineProperty.IsChild(MyHouseProperty)) Debug.Trace("My house is a child of the Batooine location") endIf
Bool Function HasLocation(Location akLocation, Location akOtherLocation) ; Does the same thing as ischild, but checks if the location is none. if akLocation && akOtherLocation != none if akLocation.isChild(akOtherLocation) return true else return false endif else return false endif EndFunction
- This function will return true if the TamrielLocation is the calling location, even though the Parent location set on the passed-in (akOther) location's form is not set to TamrielLocation. This is because this function checks whatever is the parent location of the parent location of the passed-in location. To better explain this: RiverwoodLocation's parent location is WhiterunHoldLocation, while WhiterunHoldLocation's parent is TamrielLocation. This function will return true for either of them for RiverwoodLocation. So, if you want to know if a particular is a parent, do not use Tamriel unless you really want to know if Tamriel is the parent.
