Reply With Quote #1

Hello. I have this error: error 035: argument type mismatch (argument 3)

I am trying to pass a string variable to the createTimer function.


Code:
new String:steamid[25];
	
if(GetClientAuthId(client, AuthId_Steam2, steamid, sizeof(steamid))) {
	CreateTimer(2.0, saveBan, steamid);
}

public Action saveBan(Handle timer, any steamid) {
.......
}
This method does not work either: (now this error: error 100: function prototypes do not match)

Not working:
Code:
public Action saveBan(Handle timer, char[] steamid) {
.........
}
Not working:
( error 100: function prototypes do not match)
Code:
public Action saveBan(Handle timer, const char[] steamid) {
........
}
What is the solution? I am confused! Thanks

My question is why are you waiting 2 seconds to save a ban?

Sounds like an XY problem.

The second parameter must be any, Handle, or simply absent. Who told you that char[] would work?

You could use GetSteamAccountID (int) instead.

It does not work because it needs to be:
PHP Code:
public Action TimerCallback(Handle timerHandle hndlany data*);

This is not neededjust use Handle timerHandle hndl
// any data is some info stored on the action you created the timer. 
Best Regards, Hope I could help you ;)

the prototype does not match, the function expects a variable, not a array

Maybe there is more efficient method, but this should work

PHP Code:
#define STEAMID_CHARSTR_LENGTH 25

...(...)
{
    
char steamid[STEAMID_CHARSTR_LENGTH];
    if(
GetClientAuthId(clientAuthId_Steam2steamidsizeof(steamid))) 
    {
        
DataPack pack;
        
        
CreateDataTimer(2.0saveBanpack);
        
        for(
int i 0STEAMID_CHARSTR_LENGTH; ++i)
        {
            
pack.WriteCell(view_as<int>(steamid[i]));
        }
    }
}
public 
Action saveBan(Handle timerDataPack pack
{
    
pack.Reset();
    
char steamid[STEAMID_CHARSTR_LENGTH];
    for(
int i 0STEAMID_CHARSTR_LENGTH; ++i)
    {
        
steamid[i] = view_as<char>(pack.ReadCell());
    }
    
    
//done
