    This is an API in the Plugin Development forum.. try searching BukkitDev.

    With players that have longer usernames, I'm getting this error, and it's kicking everyone off the server:

    Is there anyway I can fix this other than trimming the usernames manually before setting the tag?

    Yeah, I figured that was the case. I read in the original post that it trims the tags if they are longer than 16 characters. To the best of my knowledge, there are no other plugins on the server that could be doing this, so I have no idea what the problem is.
    Here is my EventHandler method:

    If anyone has any idea what this could be, or has had this problem, please let me know so I can try and fix it. Until then, I'll just be manually trimming the players' names to 14 characters before adding color codes.

    amhokies Are you perhaps using the scoreboard API?

    Wow, I can't believe I missed that. I am indeed using the scoreboards to list the players in an arena. I know what the problem is now. Thanks!

    Multiple listeners that you toggle listening based on the command? This isn't really a TagAPI question but a general bukkit question ;)

    Hi, just a little question...
    The ProtocolLib page says I should use the developer build of TagAPI, where can I find them?

    There is nothing special about the latest dev build, nor should you ever use dev builds of TagAPI unless you know exactly why you're doing it (And "ProtocolLib said to!" is not a reason). Just use the release.

    Thanks! I tried it and it works perfectly fine.

    Just in case you thought I was - I'm not a unexperienced little Bukkit Kiddie ;), but I wondered why it's on the ProtocolLib page then.

    Just got round to playing around with this, but there's one thing that just doesn't make much sense to me.

    You explain how I can have it so only a specific player can see the altered name, that being TagAPI.refreshPlayer(player, forWhom);, however, I wasn't too sure how I can link that to the PlayerReceiveNameTagEvent.

    What I'm going for, is if a player sees another player, let's make this player1 and player2, if player1 and player2 are "friends" (they're on each others friend list, set in plugin), then it will display their names in green.

    I can see how I would change it with the event, but only so everyone would see the name change, as refreshPlayer toggles the event in itself I get a bit lost.

    That's not a Listener.

    Refresh is only for if you wish to update a tag as seen by a player when both are in game within vision range. Otherwise just listen for the event. The refresh method will hide and then reveal the player to another player(s), which this fires the event letting you decide what tag the player receiving the tag sees. Remember that two players are available in the event: The one whose tag you are setting and the player who will see the tag.

    Oh, sorry but it was under my impression that simply listening for the event, and using the methods available will result in either everyone seeing the coloured name, or everyone around the seen person will change?

    Edit:
    Side-Note: event.setTag(string) will simply change it for everyone, so everyone would see the players name in green. What I need is it to be limited to people on the persons friends list, but I don't see a solution without refreshPlayer, which just confuses me xD

    Please read the first post in this thread which explains how the event works

    I've already read it, thank you.

    All it explains is how I can set it so that every name one of the players see will be the same, OR that everyone will see the players new name.

    Neither of these achieve what I wanted.

    It looks like you've read the two examples bit not the paragraphs around the which explain how the event does not fire only once when the player joins but once per player-seeing-player. You can affect every single player's name tags as seen by every single other player individually.

    So all I see is the refreshPlayer methods, which I mentioned in my first post confuses me, as It simply refreshes the name, but if I were to set the tag during the event, then use the refreshPlayer method, surely they wouldn't work together, as the setTag would of already set it to either show every player the seen players name, or show everyone elses new name to the seen player.
