[1.14.3] Drawing vanilla item on IngameGui


Recommended Posts


I am currently trying to draw the texture of the current held item by the player somewhere else on the inGameGui. I am using the RenderGameOverlayEvent.post and i can easily drawString but i don't know how to draw texture.

I tried using the blit method but i don't know how to get the TextureAtlasSprite of an item (wich is needed for the method). I can get the ResourceLocation of the item but i have no clue for the TextureAtlasSprite.

Could i also have explanation on the bindTexture(ResourceLocation resource) method ?


Thank you for any reply.

Resolved my issue.

To get the TextureAtlasSprite of an item i use :

public static final Minecraft MC = Minecraft.getInstance();
public static final PlayerEntity player = MC.player;

TextureAtlasSprite texture = MC.getTextureMap().getSprite(player.getHeldItemMainHand().getItem().getRegistryName());

Don’t use that... that will break completely for anything that isn’t 100% standard. In 1.12.2 you would use RenderItem#renderStack. I’m not sure what the 1.14 replacement is, but it should be pretty easy to find by looking at the ingame GUI renderer or the item group renderer.

Thank you,

You were right i looked more deeply in the way that the inventory is generated on the GUI and found this method :

renderItemIntoGUI(ItemStack stack, int x, int y)

in the ItemRenderer class and it is really easy to use. For example i use it like this :

public static finale Minecraft MC = Minecraft.getInstance();

MC.getItemRenderer().renderItemIntoGUI(MC.player.getHeldItemMainhand(), 200, 200);


For some reasons when i first read the ItemRenderer class i completely passed over it.
