Solved Pass owning plugin to Listener class

  1. Good day,

    This is my first day of Minecraft plugin development, so sorry for this noob question.
    I'm working with meta, I need to include one double value to fired arrow. I have separated class for my
    onEntityShootBow method (@EventHandler).

    I have tried this:
    Code (Text):
    e.getProjectile().setMetadata("damageMultiplier", new FixedMetadataValue(new Main(), damageMultiplier));
    but it results in Java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Plugin already initialized!

    So, my question is, how can I pass my Plugin instance into Listener? I have tried to change Listener's method signature (adding Plugin pl parameter) but that resulted in Error: plugin tried to register Listener with invalid signature...

    Any ideas ?
  2. You have 2 options:

    * Pass the main instance on the listener constructor (easier when making a small plugin).

    * Save a static instance variable and make a method to get it.
    • Informative Informative x 1
  3. Either make a static instance or..

    Code (Text):

    public ListenerClass(Main pl) { = pl;

    // In main class
    new ListenerClass(this);
    • Winner Winner x 1
  4. Thank you guys a lot!

    I used constructor parameter.
