[solved] How and where to add a function for a bar?

I think the preferred way is something like:

Code: Select all

bar value VariableValue("foo", 100)
"You think"? o_0; This topic didn't really help me figuring it out. I want to add another audio volume slider under preferences. Adding the slider in screen.rpy was easy. Now I got kinda lost in the "old ways" versus "new ways" of the whole screen language thingy. Plus the whole OOP approach is still kinda bizarrely abstact to me...

My question is: Where and how do I add a function or method that change the volume of that audio channel according to the bar slider? Instead of Preference("sound volume") I place there my own function?


EDIT: The Answer is the function is indeed put right into the screen definition with bar value <function>.

In my case I wanted to add a 4th mixer. It took me a while to dig up from the old and new documention, that renpy.music.register_channel( ) not only registers named channels, but also allows to create a new mixer at the same time.

Code: Select all

screen volume_controls:
    frame:
        has vbox

        label _("Ambience Volume")
        bar value MixerValue("ambience")

That bar tutorial was for variable values and displaying information, not for modifying the preferences screen xD

Aleema's tutorial above is better for you if you wanted to make sliders for the preference screen.
