I'm currently working on a bot that searches an area for music objects
(objects with trigger + "sound" in the action field). But I have a weird
problem: it reports an object as a music object (i.e. it had a trigger and
"sound" in it's action field, but when it's supposed to post the actual
action field, it returns a blank... here's the result of a query in my town:

(22:47:20) Starting to query area...
Found music object! (location: -2217.713N/S -2145.348W/E -.02a.) action
field: (owner of object: KAH)
Found music object! (location: -2217.713N/S -2145.348W/E -.02a.) action
field: (owner of object: KAH)
Found music object! (location: -2213.104N/S -2143.331W/E -.02a.) action
field: create sound http://real-virtuality.com/midi/pa12.mid (owner of
object: Neo15)

and here is my code (triggered by AW_EVENT_CELL_OBJECT):

If sdk.AwObjectAction Like "*create sound*" Then
sdk.AwCitizenAttributesByNumber sdk.AwObjectOwner
QueryConsole "Found music object! (location: " & Str((sdk.AwObjectZ /
1000)) & "N/S " & Str((sdk.AwObjectX / 1000)) & "W/E " & Str((sdk.AwObjectY
/ 1000)) & "a.) action field: " & sdk.AwObjectAction & " (owner of object: "
& sdk.AwCitizenName & ")"
ElseIf sdk.AwObjectAction Like "*activate sound*" Then
sdk.AwCitizenAttributesByNumber sdk.AwObjectOwner
QueryConsole "Found music object! (location: " & Str((sdk.AwObjectZ /
1000)) & "N/S " & Str((sdk.AwObjectX / 1000)) & "W/E " & Str((sdk.AwObjectY
/ 1000)) & "a.) action field: " & sdk.AwObjectAction & " (owner of object: "
& sdk.AwCitizenName & ")"
ElseIf sdk.AwObjectAction Like "*bump sound*" Then
sdk.AwCitizenAttributesByNumber sdk.AwObjectOwner
QueryConsole "Found music object! (location: " & Str((sdk.AwObjectZ /
1000)) & "N/S " & Str((sdk.AwObjectX / 1000)) & "W/E " & Str((sdk.AwObjectY
/ 1000)) & "a.) action field: " & sdk.AwObjectAction & " (owner of object: "
& sdk.AwCitizenName & ")"
ElseIf sdk.AwObjectAction Like "*adone sound*" Then
sdk.AwCitizenAttributesByNumber sdk.AwObjectOwner
QueryConsole "Found music object! (location: " & Str((sdk.AwObjectZ /
1000)) & "N/S " & Str((sdk.AwObjectX / 1000)) & "W/E " & Str((sdk.AwObjectY
/ 1000)) & "a.) action field: " & sdk.AwObjectAction & " (owner of object: "
& sdk.AwCitizenName & ")"
End If

sorry, this looks a bit messy in the post, but if you know VB you'll
understand how it's supposed to be... does anyone know why the
sdk.AwObjectAction value suddently disapeares?

PS. don't ask me why I'm making such a bot :-))

I don't know VB but :

1. you should have different messages for this test,
to see which of your conditions fails

2. maybe you should combine your conditions with "or"
later so you have a bunch of long lines less

hm, maybe I have an idea what it could be, an empty
action field could be "like" any string, that's how
Clipper handled it, not sure about VB but maybe.

That would mean already the first condition would
always be true and you had to do something like


if ( (sdk.AwObjectAction <> "") and
( (sdk.AwObjectAction Like "*create sound*") or
(sdk.AwObjectAction Like "*activate sound*") or
(sdk.AwObjectAction Like "*bump sound*") or
(sdk.AwObjectAction Like "*adone sound*") ) ) then

sdk.AwCitizenAttributesByNumber sdk.AwObjectOwner

QueryConsole "Found music object! (location: " & Str((sdk.AwObjectZ
/ 1000)) & "N/S " & Str((sdk.AwObjectX / 1000)) & "W/E " &
Str((sdk.AwObjectY
/ 1000)) & "a.) action field: " & sdk.AwObjectAction & " (owner
of object: "
& sdk.AwCitizenName & ")"
End If

like is for comparing stuff, roughly, it enables to use wildcards, so the
action can have anything before create sound (including nothing) and
anything after it. anyways, I'm kinda comfused, because the objects it
reported just didn't exist... and also, the sector it selects to query
varies, and it only queries that sector, doesn't query the others... this
seems weird, as I used the example code provided on the VB SDK help pages to
query...

I think this has to do with VB's poor ability to handle great quantities of
data, as it also confuses citnums, etc
