GUI Spell System v220.127.116.11
Submitted by Bribe
GUI Spell System
Spell System revolutionizes the spell making process. It handles spell indexing, end-cast events, timed triggers, configurable unit-in-range filters, memory leak management, gives you access to a part of a global hashtable and reduces your variable and handle count drastically per spell. This system unifies all spell events and runs your triggers for you, directly. The result is an efficient, fully-featured and clean spell coding experience, and my personal favorite contribution to the GUI community.
Included in the demo map is the first spell I've made in 5 years: The Big Dipper. I am pleased to present this project to the Hive community!
- Automatic event handling of spells. The system runs your triggers for you once you have configured your spell with a couple of variables.
- Automatic creation and destruction of spell indices.
- Automatic variable setting: sets the cast ability, the ability level, caster, target, caster position and target position and more into Spell__ variables.
- Automatically runs a spell instance periodically if you specify an OnLoop trigger from a spell.
- Automatic memory management of caster/target locations.
- Unified common variables to reduce user's need to constantly create the same, redudant variables each time per spell.
- Automatically gets all units in a range matching pre-specified conditions.
- You can configure which units in range are chosen from the configuration trigger of your spell.

Advanced group variables
Channel Spell Variables
- SpellEvent by Anitarf - Without his system, GUI Spell System wouldn't be nearly what it is now. Almost all the fundamentals of this system are encapsulated by SpellEvent.
- vJass structs by Vexorian - Create a unique integer variable which will act as an array index. Has OnDestroy functionality which is run automatically and is double-free safe.
- Timer32 by Jesus4Lyf - One timer for all periodic events; handles iteration of instances for you behind-the-scenes.
- Constant Timer Loop 32 by Nestharus - A combination of Timer32 and vJass struct creation/destruction which pauses timers/removes system triggers when completed.
- GroupUtils by Rising_Dusk - Factors in a unit's collision size into the InRange check and recycles unit groups.
- Table by Vexorian - The idea to use one hashtable with unique indexes as parent keys so it can be used for many different things.
