1.14.4 Checkink right click signs

Discussion in 'Spigot Plugin Development' started by FraterClub, Jan 16, 2020.

  1. I'm trying to put in a hashmap the right clicked sign, but with the signs update in 1.14, I'm not able. How should I do it?

    My code is this:

    Code (Java):
        public void clickSign(PlayerInteractEvent e) {
            Player p = e.getPlayer();

            if(e.getAction() == Action.RIGHT_CLICK_BLOCK && e.getClickedBlock() instanceof Sign) {
                s.getSigns().put(p, (Sign)e.getClickedBlock());

  2. use e.getBlock().getState()

  3. Adding to that, you could also get the type of the Block (Block#getType(), which returns a Material)
    If you are unsure about what the actual Type of the Block is, you can always print the type
    Code (Java):
    In most cases, however, a block (as @robertlit said) is better defined by its block-state.
  4. Remember the built in spawn protection in server.properties prevents right clicks in spawn so turn it off or don't test in protected spawn area ;)

    Also be sure you imported Sign properly. You want it from org.bukkit.block not the one from org.bukkit.material.

  6. If the replys above dont solve your problem, you can try checking for diffrent signtypes.

    "Sign" covers them as well:

  8. To add on, I’d suggest storing the location not the Sign instance itself.

  9. yea storing objects in a map prevents them from unloading, basically a memory leak
  10. You’d store a Location because it makes sense, not because it causes a memory leak. You can leak memory storing anything if you don’t remove it, just storing a block doesn’t cause a memory leak in itself.
