Best way to pass information between C++ and Lua when doing callback?
- Posts: 44
I've got a problem regarding passing information to lua functions from c++ when doing
It's all fine when I have to pass integers, as I can use CCNode and tag for example.
The trouble starts when I have to pass a string for example.
So I've tried using userData on CCNode to pass this information [that's a hack, I know, but I couldn't find any other way to do so], but all I get in Lua is userdata :/
CCNode *tempNode = CCNode::node(); tempNode->setUserData((void*)notificationLayer->getString().c_str()); CCScriptEngineManager::sharedScriptEngineManager()->getScriptEngine()->executeCallFuncN(functionNameOk.c_str(), tempNode);
and in Lua:
function testString(node) ogsLog("node:", node) ogsLog("wooohoooo string passed!", node:getUserData()) end
Cocos2d: node: userdata: 0xeb49e94 Cocos2d: wooohoooo string passed! userdata: 0xeb40e8c
I would appreciate if someone could point me in right direction :/ I'm sure I'm missing something obvious.

Is there a way to pass some data from c++ to the lua script?
For example, there is a object in c++ named SomeDataForLua with int fields someData1 and someData2.
Is it possible to send this to the lua script from c++?
