    Hi,

    I need a function that retrieves string data from the wts file (you know, "TRIGSTR_####"). I used this one:

    Code (vJASS):
    function Sweep takes integer i returns string
        call SetPlayerName(Player(12), "TRIGSTR_"+I2S(i))
        return GetPlayerName(Player(12))
    endfunction


    (supposed i>99) but it fails on long strings. The "TRIGSTR_####" string must contact with user interface to turn into its wts data - be displayed or set into such place where user can see it. QuestSetTitle, LeaderboardSetLabel etc. Tried to set/get leaderboard and multiboard titles, but they also fail. If I could get quest description, or what... Maybe I can use something like GetObjectName or GetLocalizedString in some special way? And, saving into gamecache also didn't work... Help please.

    EDIT: Sorry. This function actually works for all strings. The problem was the way I modified the .wts file, so I'll tell how to do it properly to avoid wasting time by other dudes like me.

    So, to add a string to your wts file, you do the following.
    1. In WE, File > Export text and save it as wts file.
    2. Open this file with a text editor (notepad, wordPad, word or whatever you like).
    3. The file consists of such data:
    Code (Text):
    STRING 1234
    {
    Text
    }
    Scroll to the end of file and add a string to it, with the number equal to number of last found string + 1. Save the file.
    4. In WE, File > Import text and select your modified file.
    5. IMPORTANT! If you save your map just now, the added string may disappear because you didn't use it anywhere. So, add somewhere a commented text like this:
    Code (vJASS):
     // TRIGSTR_1235

    where 1235 is the number of added string.

    My function Sweep allows me to avoid typing "TRIGSTR_####" in the map script, so WE doesn't know whether I use the triggerstring of a certain number.
