<Script> (child of <Ui>) executes Lua code.

<Script file="" />
<Script>
	-- Lua code
</Script>

Attributes

file (xs:string?Optional. Could be nil.) - Relative path to a *.lua file, in lieu of coding Lua inside the XML file.

Details

  • Executed when reached by the XML parser, going from top to bottom.
  • Similar to <Include> when referring to another file.
  • Similar to <Scripts> except placed in <Ui> rather than a <Frame>.

Example

The following code creates the frame first, then runs a script that refers to it:

<Frame name="foo">
	<Scripts>
		<OnLoad>
			self.bar = "test"
		</OnLoad>
	</Scripts>
</Frame>
<Script>
	print(foo.bar)
</Script>

The following code runs the script first, causing an error:

<Script>
	print(foo.bar) -- error
</Script>
<Frame name="foo">
	<Scripts>
		<OnLoad>
			self.bar = "test"
		</OnLoad>
	</Scripts>
</Frame>
