senderidThe ID of the sender. If invalid, the message will not be sent.
const message[]The message that will be sent.

Return Values:

This function does not return any specific values.



Avoid using format specifiers in your messages without formatting the string that is sent. It will result in crashes otherwise.

Example Usage:

public OnPlayerText(playerid, text[])
    // format a message to contain the player's id in front of it
    new string[128];
    format(string, sizeof(string), "(%d) %s", playerid, text);
    SendPlayerMessageToAll(playerid, string);
    return 0; // return 0 prevents the original message being sent
    // Assuming 'playerid' is 0 and the player is called Tenpenny, the output will be 'Tenpenny:(0) <message>'
