HTTP API Example: reply to menu dialog

This script does the following:

  1. Waits until you touch it
  2. Sends the dialog window to your bot
  3. Reports the bot menu selection to you

Place this code to an in-world object, and replace variables at the beginning with your values (read more about api key and bot access code);

LSL Code

string sbApiKey = "...";
string sbBotName = "YourBotName Resident";
string sbBotAccessCode = "bot-access-code";
// Hint: sbBotName is the bot's name. However, you can place
// your SL name here to see the dialog yourself (and even touch the button).
// Obliviously, HTTP API won't make you touching the menu automatically :)
key httpReq = NULL_KEY;
integer CHANNEL = -11;
default {
    touch_start(integer total_number) {
        llOwnerSay("Searching for UUID, bot "+sbBotName);
        // Look for bot nearby (we can use HTTP API name2key here, too)
        llSensor(sbBotName, NULL_KEY, AGENT, 96, PI);
    sensor(integer num) {
        // We've detected our bot!
        // Hint: If "Found" message does not appear,
        // check that bot is within 96 meters range.
        key id = llDetectedKey(0);
        llOwnerSay("Found bot UUID: "+ (string)id +
                ", sending dialog menu and waiting 3 seconds...");
        // Sending dialog to the bot
        llListen(CHANNEL, sbBotName, NULL_KEY, "");
        llDialog(id, "Are you human or bot?", ["human", "bot", "both"], CHANNEL);
        // Wait 3 seconds and then make bot reply
    timer() {
        llOwnerSay("Now sending HTTP command to the bot " +
                "to click the menu's item 'bot'...");
        // The HTTP API command is being sent here:
        string params = llDumpList2String([
            "action="  + "reply_dialog",
            "apikey="  + llEscapeURL(sbApiKey),
            "botname=" + llEscapeURL(sbBotName),
            "secret="  + llEscapeURL(sbBotAccessCode),
            "channel="  + (string)CHANNEL,
            "object=" + (string)llGetKey(),
            "button=" +  llEscapeURL("bot")
            ], "&");
            [HTTP_METHOD, "POST"], params);
    listen(integer channel, string name, key id, string message) {
        // We've got a reply from menu!
        llOwnerSay("Bot touched the menu item: " + message);

Important note

Actually the script is not complete. You may need to know:

  • the moment WHEN bot gets a popup menu
  • the channel that menu uses (since menu's channel can vary)

This example is very basic (you can use it when you exactly know that dialog has been shown, and a dialog's channel). New HTTP API callback functions (in development yet) will allow you to get that info from bots.
