Tables

I made a “DListView” and I want to make a new line for each VIP. I’m trying to add a line with the information “Name, SteamID, Amount of Months Issued, Time Left” for each VIP. How would I go about doing this? Use this:

[lua]
table.insert( VIPList, { VIPList.Name = v:Name(), VIPList.SteamID = v:SteamID(), VIPList.Time = months, --VIPList.TimeLeft =
} )

local DermaListView = vgui.Create(“DListView”)
DermaListView:SetParent(DermaPanel)
DermaListView:SetPos(25, 50)
DermaListView:SetSize(450, 625)
DermaListView:SetMultiSelect(false)
DermaListView:AddColumn(“Name”)
DermaListView:AddColumn(“SteamID”)
DermaListView:AddColumn(“Amount of Months”)
DermaListView:AddColumn(“Time Left”)
[/lua]

Another question that most people probably can’t answer, and if you can’t don’t but please answer first one.

First of all, I hope I’ve done this correctly, if not, don’t hesitate to correct! Anyways, I got this table that I want to insert so I can make a list of VIPs and shit. But the thing is, I need help finding out how long the cron has left… Anyone got any ideas?

[lua]
VIPList = {}

cron.RegisterJob( “unvip”, function( sid )
v:SetUserGroup( “user” )
PrintMessage( HUD_PRINTTALK, v:Name()…"'s VIP has expired and revoked." )
end )

local function addVIP( ply, text )
local sep = string.Explode( " “, text )
if sep[1] == (”!ad" or “!add” or “!addv” or “!addvi”)
draw.SimpleText( “!addvip <name> <# of months>”, “Trebuchet20”, 130, ScrH()*0.827, Color(0,0,0,255), TEXT_ALIGN_LEFT, TEXT_ALIGN_CENTER)
end
if sep[1] == “!addvip” and ply:IsUserGroup( “owner” ) then
local months = tonumber( sep[3] )
if not months then return ply:PrintMessage( HUD_PRINTTALK, “Invalid amount of months.” ) end

    local name = table.concat( sep, " ", 2 )
    for k,v in pairs( player.GetAll() ) do
        if v:Name():lower():find( name:lower() ) then
            v:SetUserGroup( "VIP" )

            local t = os.date( "*t" )
            local conf = {
                Minutes = t.min,
                Hours = t.hour,
                Days = t.day,
                Months = (t.month%12 + months)
            }

            cron.Add( "unvip_" .. v:SteamID(), conf, "unvip", v:SteamID() )
			table.insert( VIPList, { VIPList.Name = v:Name(), VIPList.SteamID = v:SteamID(), VIPList.Time = months, --VIPList.TimeLeft = 
                            } )
            PrintMessage( HUD_PRINTTALK, ply:Name() .. " made player ".. v:Name() .. " a VIP for "..months.." months." )
            break
        end
    end
end

end
hook.Add ( “PlayerSay”, “addVIP”, addVIP )
[/lua]

About the DListView (I haven’t tested):
[lua]
– Global Table
VIPList = {}

– adding a new vip(sent through usermessage?)
– I’M ASSUMING YOU ALREADY HAVE “ply” VARIABLE, WHICH IS A PLAYER ENTITY
local newvip = {}
newvip[“Name”] = ply:GetName()
newvip[“SteamID”] = ply:SteamID()
newvip[“Months”] = months
newvip[“TimeLeft”] = ??
table.insert(VIPList, newvip)

local DermaListView = vgui.Create(“DListView”, DermaPanel)
DermaListView:SetPos(25, 50)
DermaListView:SetSize(450, 625)
DermaListView:SetMultiSelect(false)
DermaListView:AddColumn(“Name”)
DermaListView:AddColumn(“SteamID”)
DermaListView:AddColumn(“Amount of Months”)
DermaListView:AddColumn(“Time Left”)

for k,v in pairs(VIPList) do
DermaListView:AddLine(v.Name, v.SteamID, v.Months, v.TimeLeft)
end
[/lua]

Do you know how to check if they click one of the columns?

**[DListView.OnClickLine

I believe that is it. Correct me if I am wrong.

Okay, so I have that, but after thinking about it, I have no idea what to do next. I want to check if a line is chosen and a button is pressed, then it does something… But I have no idea how to start, mind helping?

like this?
[lua]

local button = vgui.Create(“DButton”, DermaPanel)
button:SetTitle(“Info”)
button:SetPos() – Your pos
button:SetSize() – Your size
button.DoClick = function(btn)
local id = DermaListView:GetSelectedLine() – Getting the line id
print("Test with: “…VIPList[id].Name…”
")
end

[/lua]

That is exactly what I want. Thank you! If I had known he function to get the selected line I woulda tried myself. . .
