[1.11.2][SOLVED] Is it possible to use a button, radiobutton or checkbox in a config GUI?


Recommended Posts

My code is like this (source @Choonster):


@Config(modid = TestMod3.MODID)
public class ModConfig {

    @Config.Comment("This is an example boolean property.")
    public static boolean fooBar = false;

    private static class EventHandler {

         * Inject the new values and save to the config file when the config has been changed from the GUI.
         * @param event The event
        public static void onConfigChanged(ConfigChangedEvent.OnConfigChangedEvent event) {
            if (event.getModID().equals(TestMod3.MODID)) {
                ConfigManager.sync(TestMod3.MODID, Config.Type.INSTANCE);


I'd like to know if one can have a button, radiobutton or checkbox in the config GUI. The following picture down to the right has a checkbox that says "Apply globally". Is it possible to use a checkbox like that in the GUI and if so, can buttons and radio buttons be used as well? If yes too, how? What data type or class should one use for a variable if it is that it already exist?

Forge doesn't allow you to use checkboxes or radio buttons by default, it uses buttons that cycle between the valid values when clicked instead.


A boolean field will be converted to a boolean property and use a button that cycles between true and false in the config GUI. This is equivalent to a checkbox.


An enum field will be converted to a string property that only accepts the enum's values and use a button that cycles between these values in the config GUI. This is equivalent to a set of radio buttons.


What would you want a non-radio button for?

Please don't PM me to ask for help. Asking your question in a public thread preserves it for people who are having the same problem in the future.

I see. Then config is not the way to go for my purposes. I'll use GuiScreen with GuiButton then.

To apply a custom property from my own mod to other items that may not necessarily come from my mod. If you take two of any, all properties would be mutually exclusive so I wanted a radio button. A GuiButton for example could work to remember only one property and then the player applies it to any item it wants in the game.


But now I understand I'm doing the wrong approach. I'll use GuiScreen instead of a Gui config.

    • MegaMiner is just my playground mod. Here's the entire MegaMinerEvents class. It's just a static event receiver.   package nu.rydin.explodingarrows.common.events; import net.minecraft.core.BlockPos; import net.minecraft.nbt.CompoundTag; import net.minecraft.nbt.Tag; import net.minecraft.world.entity.player.Player; import net.minecraft.world.level.Level; import net.minecraft.world.level.LevelAccessor; import net.minecraft.world.level.block.Block; import net.minecraft.world.level.block.state.BlockState; import net.minecraftforge.event.TickEvent; import net.minecraftforge.event.world.BlockEvent; import net.minecraftforge.eventbus.api.SubscribeEvent; import net.minecraftforge.fml.common.Mod; import nu.rydin.explodingarrows.common.Main; import nu.rydin.explodingarrows.common.enchantments.ModEnchantments; import java.util.LinkedList; @Mod.EventBusSubscriber(modid = Main.MOD_ID, bus = Mod.EventBusSubscriber.Bus.FORGE) public class MegaMinerEvents { private static final class BlockToBreak { private final BlockPos pos; private final Player player; public BlockToBreak(final BlockPos pos, final Player player) { this.pos = pos; this.player = player; } } private static final LinkedList<BlockToBreak> queue = new LinkedList<>(); @SubscribeEvent public static void onBreakBlock(final BlockEvent.BreakEvent e) { final LevelAccessor world = e.getWorld(); if (world.isClientSide()) { return; } for (final Tag t : e.getPlayer().getMainHandItem().getEnchantmentTags()) { final CompoundTag ct = (CompoundTag) t; if (ct.getString("id") .equals(ModEnchantments.MEGA_MINER.get().getRegistryName().toString())) { MegaMinerEvents.mineNeighborhood(e.getPos(), e.getPlayer(), e.getState().getBlock()); } } } @SubscribeEvent public static void onTick(final TickEvent.ServerTickEvent e) { if (MegaMinerEvents.queue.isEmpty()) { return; } final BlockToBreak b = MegaMinerEvents.queue.removeFirst(); final Level world = b.player.level; final BlockState bs = world.getBlockState(b.pos); bs.getBlock().playerDestroy(world, b.player, b.pos, bs, null, b.player.getMainHandItem()); world.removeBlock(b.pos, true); // MegaMinerEvents.mineNeighborhood(b.pos, b.player, bs.getBlock()); System.out.println(MegaMinerEvents.queue.size()); } private static void mineNeighborhood( final BlockPos pos, final Player player, final Block blockType) { final float x0 = pos.getX(); final float y0 = pos.getY(); final float z0 = pos.getZ(); for (float z = z0 - 1.0F; z <= z0 + 1; z += 1.0) { for (float y = y0 - 1.0F; y <= y0 + 1; y += 1.0) { for (float x = x0 - 1.0F; x <= x0 + 1; x += 1.0) { final BlockState b = player.getLevel().getBlockState(pos); if (b.is(blockType)) { MegaMinerEvents.queue.addLast(new BlockToBreak(pos, player)); } } } } } }
