IsFurnitureInUse - ObjectReference

From Creation Kit
Jump to: navigation, search

Member of: ObjectReference Script

Checks to see if any furniture marker on this object is in use, optionally ignoring markers that are reserved, but not currently used.

Syntax

bool Function IsFurnitureInUse(bool abIgnoreReserved = false) native

Parameters

  • abIgnoreReserved: Whether to ignore reserved markers or not.
    • Default: False

Return Value

If any marker on the furniture is in use. (Or reserved, if we aren't ignoring reservations)

Examples

; Is the bed in use (or someone has reserved it)?
if Bed.IsFurnitureInUse()
  Debug.Trace("Bed is being used")
endIf


; Is the bed actually in use (ignoring reservations)?
if Bed.IsFurnitureInUse(true)
  Debug.Trace("Bed is actually being used")
endIf

Notes

  1. If the furniture object has no marker, or is being activated remotely so no animation plays, IsFurnitureInUse will return false. To workaround this, if the furniture disables looking controls (for example crafting stations), the below example can be used instead.
Event OnActivate(ObjectReference akActionRef)
  Utility.Wait(1.0)
  RegisterForSingleUpdate(0.5)
EndEvent
 
Event OnUpdate()
  if ( ! Game.IsLookingControlsEnabled() )
    ; Controls disabled, Player must still be using this furniture
    RegisterForSingleUpdate(0.5)
    return
  else 
    ; Furniture no longer in use
  endif
EndEvent
