[1.11.2] [SOLVED] Centered Rendering


Recommended Posts



I've got a little question:

How can I render something like a progress bar or a text or what ever centered on the screen?


Note: For rendering I'm using the RenderGameOverlayEvent.Post event.


It would also be quite nice to know how to render stuff with this event centered on the block the player is looking at.


Thx in advance.

As for centered on screen:

centeredPosition = (dimensionOfScreen - dimensionOfThing) / 2

Dimension being either width or height, depending on in which dimension you want to center.


As for rendering on the block... you should use DrawBlockHighlightEvent for that, which is fired when the block highlight (wireframe) is drawn. Check out RenderGlobal::drawSelectionBox to see how that is done and adapt it for your needs.

Ok, thx, but from where do I get width and height of the screen?
