[TUT] News System

Recommended Posts


Have you tried any of my scripts with the news system? DChickens & DClay are both using it. It loads text from a .txt document, and shows them to you. And you - can update this at any point!

Place this somewhere in your script:

public ArrayList<String> getNews()	
	ArrayList<String> toReturn = new ArrayList<String>();		
  		URL url = new URL("mywebsite.com/document.txt");		    
  		BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(url.openStream()));		    
  		String str;		    
		while ((str = in.readLine()) != null) 
  		catch (MalformedURLException e) 
  			System.out.println("Your firewall blocked the news loader.");		
  		catch (IOException e) 
  			System.out.println("Unable to connect to the news loader.");		
  		}	return toReturn;	

please make sure you change mywebsite.com/document.txt to the location where your news file is.

This code will return the contents of the targeted document.txt in the form of an ArrayList.


than add this on top of your script, together with your other variables

private ArrayList<String> latestNews = new ArrayList<String>();
private long startNewsTime = System.currentTimeMillis();

Now we are going to save the text we just downloaded from the internet - in a new arraylist. To do so, we place the following in your Run() before the script loop.

latestNews = getNews();


After that we put this somewhere above your onPaint function:

int newsToShow = 0;

private void getnewsdata()	
	int newsTimer = (int) (System.currentTimeMillis() - startNewsTime) / 1000;		
	if(newsTimer > 8)		
		startNewsTime = System.currentTimeMillis();			
		if(newsToShow == (latestNews.size() -1)) 
			newsToShow = 0;			
		else if(newsToShow < (latestNews.size())) 

now inside your onPaint function, add the following to actually display your news :)

if(newsToShow < (latestNews.size())) 
g.drawString("NEWS: "+ latestNews.get(newsToShow), 40,40);

Happy scripting & Happy botting

Feel free to ask me any questions, I will answer them as soon as I have the time to do so.
