OnPlayerClickPlayerTextDraw was added in SA-MP 0.3e This callback was added in SA-MP 0.3e and will not work in earlier versions!


This callback is called when a player clicks on a player-textdraw. It is not called when player cancels the select mode (ESC) - however, OnPlayerClickTextDraw is.

(playerid, PlayerText:playertextid)
playeridThe ID of the player that selected a textdraw
playertextidThe ID of the player-textdraw that the player selected.

Return Values:

Returning 1/true in this callback will prevent it being called in other scripts. This should be used to signal that the textdraw on which they clicked was 'found' and no further processing is needed. You should return 0/false if the textdraw on which they clicked wasn't found, just like in OnPlayerCommandText.
  • It is always called first in filterscripts so returning 1 there also blocks other scripts from seeing it.

Example Usage:

new PlayerText:gPlayerTextDraw[MAX_PLAYERS];
public OnPlayerConnect(playerid)
    // Create the textdraw
    gPlayerTextDraw[playerid] = CreatePlayerTextDraw(playerid, 10.000000, 141.000000, "MyTextDraw");
    PlayerTextDrawTextSize(playerid, gPlayerTextDraw[playerid], 60.000000, 20.000000);
    PlayerTextDrawAlignment(playerid, gPlayerTextDraw[playerid],0);
    PlayerTextDrawBackgroundColor(playerid, gPlayerTextDraw[playerid],0x000000ff);
    PlayerTextDrawFont(playerid, gPlayerTextDraw[playerid], 1);
    PlayerTextDrawLetterSize(playerid, gPlayerTextDraw[playerid], 0.250000, 1.000000);
    PlayerTextDrawColor(playerid, gPlayerTextDraw[playerid], 0xffffffff);
    PlayerTextDrawSetProportional(playerid, gPlayerTextDraw[playerid], 1);
    PlayerTextDrawSetShadow(playerid, gPlayerTextDraw[playerid], 1);
    // Make it selectable
    PlayerTextDrawSetSelectable(playerid, gPlayerTextDraw[playerid], 1);  
    // Show it to the player
    PlayerTextDrawShow(playerid, gPlayerTextDraw[playerid]);
    return 1;
public OnPlayerKeyStateChange(playerid, newkeys, oldkeys)
    if(newkeys == KEY_SUBMISSION)
        SelectTextDraw(playerid, 0xFF4040AA);
    return 1;
public OnPlayerClickPlayerTextDraw(playerid, PlayerText:playertextid)
    if(playertextid == gPlayerTextDraw[playerid])
         SendClientMessage(playerid, 0xFFFFFFAA, "You clicked on a textdraw.");
         return 1;
    return 0;


When a player presses ESC to cancel selecting a textdraw, OnPlayerClickTextDraw is called with a textdraw ID of 'INVALID_TEXT_DRAW'. OnPlayerClickPlayerTextDraw won't be called also.
