Hey guys, I recently got my hands on a Trade bot for keys. I wanted to edit it and turn it into a raffle bot. Basically it would take in entries for 1 Refined Metal each. And each one given will write the person's steam profile ID in a HTML document.

Problem I am having is I have never wrote anything in C#, but I am familiar with code structure. I have searched all throughout the code and found the section that receives text input.

So I copy and paste that, and turn the key phrase to "raffle" and all I want it to do right now is print something. something to let me know it is working, but absolutely nothing happens. It won't even print text in the console of all things.

public override void OnTradeMessage(string message)
{
message = message.ToLower();

if (message == "raffle")
{
Bot.log.Success("User wants to do a raffle!");
}
//try
//{
//{
//Console.WriteLine(line);
//}
//}
}

}


Not sure if anyone is familiar with trade bots. I just wanted to start simple to make a key raffle bot for a group I am a mod in.

My guess is it isn't compiling properly because of a syntax error. Specifically, the second comma from the end is not supposed to be there.

public override void OnTradeMessage(string message)
{
message = message.ToLower();

if (message == "raffle")
{
Bot.log.Success("User wants to do a raffle!");
}
//try
//{
//{
//Console.WriteLine(line);
//}
//}

} //<---- UNNECESSARY/EXTRA CURLY BRACKET

}

It's perfectly fine to abbreviate my username to 'Servant' rather than copy+pasting it all the time.

That's a curly bracket, not a comma or a semicolon.

Since you have almost 14k worth of rep Servant of the Lord, I'm not correcting you for your sake. It's for the other newbies here. /hugs

, - comma

; - semicolon

{} - curly brackets or curly braces

As a heads-up, if you end up uncommenting the commented out lines, you'll have yet another problem. There's a missing semicolon at Trade.SendMessage(line)...
