Re: d20 StatBlock Importer: Pathfinder/DnD3/3.5

Hi! I'm so glad you like the tool. However, I should point out that it is OLD - I haven't looked at this in over 2 years - as you can probably tell from the date of that last post. I've since hit the home stretch of my PhD, while starting a full-time job, and just haven't had time to keep up with RP...

Re: Batch Edit Macro Properties [1.3b56+]

Can you give a quick run down of how you would set this up. I couldn't get it to work. Now given I am as dumb as a rock, but I dragged the token into my campaign, I ran the "onCampaignLoad", then I tried to run from token, nothing, couldn't find my other tokens. I then tried dragging macr...

Re: [1.3.b70] Change style of form buttons

Have you tried changing padding or margins in the html in the input contents directly? <input type="submit" value="<html><span style='padding: 0 ; margin: 0 ;'>X</span></html>"> <input type="submit" value="<html><head><style><!-- html { margin: 0 ; padding: 0 ; } -...

Re: Bug? Or bad macro?

I don't know if it's a bug, but it might easier to construct your tooltip manually (using the title attribute of a span tag: see alisamask's post), than trying to figure out formatting of nested MapTool roll options, which can get messy, as you have discovered. I think the note you refer to regardin...

Re: rol.count doesn't work...anymore

The formatToolTip UDF does use FOREACH loops. All loops ( count , for , foreach , and even while ) generate their own roll.count, if I recall correctly. Therefore, if you defined the formatToolTip function with the same variable scope (4th argument in defineFunction : refers to the scope of variable...

Re: [1.3b70] get active variables

For macros where I will deal with and process several token properties, I usually do this: - Define a list of all the property names - Set local variables with a prefix with the contents of the token properties - do some processing to the local variables - set the properties with a loop.

Re: [1.3b56-70] Try() function to suppress error messages?

FYI Error messages can be suppressed in User-Defined Functions, by defining a function with "output suppressed" (see defineFunction ). This generally causes a function to return an empty string, rather than an error message. However, this is only true if the option for "Use ToolTips f...

Re: Custom "Robust" eval()

So, looking at your code, I'm guessing oldFunction is the same as using the UDF alias name? I've never used it before. Sort of: it calls the original function being replaced by the UDF. This is not the same as calling the function directly (now defined as a UDF), which would be recursive, as oppose...

Re: macroLink - font colour

The 'style' attribute also applies to many other tags, not just <span>, so you can also apply it directly to the <a> tag: <a href="http://forums.rptools.net/posting.php?mode=reply&f=20&t=15381" style='color:red'>text</a> This is not always feasible if you are generating links using...

Re: Macro to alter /emit

Not without using a different approach. If you use a dialog for input, with a textarea as part of an HTML form, then you can have multi-line input. There are a few examples in the user creations forum. The biggest difference is that dialog doe not interrupt macro execution (unlike the input function...

MapTools uses the "Java" flavour of regular expressions, which adds extra backslashes (presumably to escape the backslash needed in the actual regular expression pattern). See this site for more info . Rumble recommends using the above-mentioned site to test patterns, then you can go over ...

Re: is there a way to sort json objects?

There's an example on the wiki of a UDF for [wiki]Sorting Nested JSON Objects[/wiki] (by sub-fields), if that's what you're looking for.
Look under [wiki]JSON Sorting[/wiki] for the code.

Heh, yeah, that was going to be my suggestion after looking at your code, though I didn't think it'd produce an error message like you saw.
