1: The function executed successfully.

0: The function failed to execute. This means either the player and/or textdraw specified does not exist.

    new Text:textid = TextDrawCreate(100.0, 100.0, "Welcome!");
    TextDrawShowForPlayer(playerid, textid);



If only a single player will see a textdraw, it might be wise to use player-textdraws instead. This is also useful for textdraws that need to show information specific for an individual player.

  • TextDrawHideForPlayer: Hide a textdraw for a certain player.
  • TextDrawShowForAll: Show a textdraw for all players.
  • TextDrawHideForAll: Hide a textdraw for all players.
