Show container gui from list of ItemStacks


Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm trying to make a mod to show the contents of a shulker box when you hover over it in your inventory (just show it clientside, not edit it).


I've managed to get a list of ItemStacks from the NBT of the box, but I'm not sure how to draw a GuiShulkerBox showing these ItemStacks. Any tutorials I have seen use methods from before 1.8, or require a block.


Any idea how to show the shulker GUI, or a similar container gui - with the ItemStacks in each Slot?



Edited by Gradle
Clarified that the effects should be clientside

I am not sure how you are intending to show the whole shulker box GUI inside an item tooltip...

I think you'd be better off just drawing the stacks in a condensed form using RenderTooltipEvent.


I was hoping to make it open some container gui so that the individual ItemStacks can be hovered over to determine their enchantments/lore.

Ideally you would need to press some button while hovering over the Shulker Box to show such a gui, but I don't know how complex that is relative to getting the itemstack information from RenderToolTipEvent or the ItemToolTipEvent.


Thanks for your reply.
