Parameters
toPlayer player

this player's name will be used to replace the %s placeholder

x real

new text box position (default is 0, clamped to: 0.0-1.0)

y real

new text box position (default is 0, clamped to: 0.0-1.0)

duration real

text lifetime in seconds

message string

text (supports color codes), may contain only one %s placeholder

bug

Only the first "%s" will be replaced correctly. Following "%s" will be printed as garbage or (v1.32.10, Lua) crash the game.

Using formatters like "%i" will also print garbage and following "%s" wont work either.

See: C stdlib printf documentation.

comment

Displays a trigger message to all players but the first "%s" in the message will be replaced by GetPlayerName(toPlayer).

note

See: DisplayTextToPlayer for the full description. Also: DisplayTimedTextToPlayer, BlzDisplayChatMessage.

note

A better name for the parameter toPlayer would be fromPlayer.
