==Standard Library==
 
 
 
( This has been taken from [http://www.wowwiki.com/Lua_functions a WoWWiki page] - See the full, official documentation [http://www.lua.org/manual/5.1/manual.html here] )
 
 
 
*'''_G''' - Global Variable - A global variable (not a function) that holds the global environment (that is, _G._G = _G). Lua itself does not use this variable; changing its value does not affect any environment, nor vice-versa. (Use setfenv to change environments.)  - taken from Lua docs
 
*'''assert'''(value[, errormsg]) - asserts a value evaluates to true. If it is, returns value, otherwise causes a Lua error to be thrown.
 
*'''getfenv'''(function or integer) - Returns the table representing the stack frame of the given function or stack level.
 
*'''getmetatable'''(obj, mtable) - Returns the metatable of the given table or userdata object.
 
*'''next'''(table, index) - Returns the next key, value pair of the table, allowing you to walk over the table.
 
*'''newproxy'''(boolean or proxy) - Creates a userdata with a sharable metatable.
 
*'''print''' - print (···) - Receives any number of arguments, and prints their values to stdout, using the tostring function to convert them to strings. print is not intended for formatted output, but only as a quick way to show a value, typically for debugging. For formatted output, use string.format.  - taken from Lua Docs
 
*'''select'''(index, list) - Returns the number of items in list or the value of the item in list at index.
 
*'''setfenv'''(function or integer, table) - Sets the table representing the stack frame of the given function or stack level.
 
*'''setmetatable'''(obj, mtable) - Sets the metatable of the given table or userdata object.
 
*'''tostring''' - tostring (e) - Receives an argument of any type and converts it to a string in a reasonable format. For complete control of how numbers are converted, use string.format. If the metatable of e has a "__tostring" field, then tostring calls the corresponding value with e as argument, and uses the result of the call as its result. - taken from Lua Docs.
 
*'''type'''(var) - Returns the type of variable as a string, "number", "string", "table", "function" or "userdata".
 
*'''unpack'''(table[, start][, end]) - Returns the contents of its argument as separate values.
 
*'''xpcall'''(func, err) - Returns a boolean indicating successful execution of func and calls err on failure, additionally returning func's or err's results.
 
 
 
==Concepts and Basics==
 
 
 
This part will explain you how the Lua actually works inside the OS and help you to figure out what you're doing when you write a script for the TI-Nspire. Before reading this, you have to know all about the Lua basics.
 
 
 
The Lua is an interpreted script language which means that it isn't as fast as ASM/C programs, but is still better than the TI-BASIC.
 
One good thing is that this language is in a complete harmony with the OS with basic events and a powerfull graphic context.
 
First, we have to understand how this works. Basicly the script is launched before the executive engine. This means that we can neither evaluate expressions nor use some of the standard API (like platform, var) until the engine is launched. Here is a call summary :
 
 
 
*Launch string library
 
*Launch math library
 
* ...
 
*Open and launch User's Lua script
 
*...
 
*Launch var API (store, recall, ...)
 
*Launch platform API (window, gc, ...)
 
*...
 
*Link events (pseudo code)
 
while(Exit)
 
------- Some OS routines here
 
 
  ---- Begin of Event link
 
buffer:captureDataFromKeyPad() --  (N) some underground routines to catch events
 
if buffer.charInput ~= "" then --  (N)
 
on.charIn(buffer.charInput)
 
buffer.charInput= "" --  (N)
 
end
 
if buffer.arrowKey ~= "" then --  (N)
 
on.arrowKey(buffer.arrowKey)
 
buffer.arrowKey = "" --  (N)
 
end
 
----- etc ...
 
if platform.window.isInvalidate then
 
platform.gc():purge() --  (N) Empty buffer before starting to draw
 
on.paint(platform.gc())   -- save all the things we have to draw
 
platform:paint()   --  (N) draw all those things
 
platform.window.isInvalidate = false -- say that the window has been drawn
 
end
 
----- End of Event link
 
end
 
''Note : the (N) commented line only indicates the meaning of the routine. Those functions don't really exist.''
 
 
 
Now we can understand how everything is linked, just by a main loop. This helps you to understand that you don't have to code a loop yourself, because the screen wouldn't be refreshed. This also helps to see when the screen gets refreshed. In other words, we cannot use niether '''gc''' nor '''platform.gc()''' (which are the same) in order to draw somthing on the screen if we are outside of '''on.paint()''' (except if your outside function is called within on.paint() ). This also means that we don't need to pass '''gc''' as parameter, because we can rather use '''platform.gc()''' for any functions called within on.paint(). This is exactly what [https://github.com/adriweb/BetterLuaAPI-for-TI-Nspire/blob/master/BetterLuaAPI.lua the BetterLuaAPI library for Nspire] does.
 
 
 
Here is an example of a simple Lua program that displays a message only when a key is pressed (and let the screen blank otherwise).
 
 
 
function on.paint(gc)
 
if message then
 
gc:setFont("sansserif", "r", 10) -- initialize font drawing
 
gc:drawString(message, 0, 0, "top") -- display the message at (0, 0) coordinates
 
message = nil -- erase the message
 
timer.start(1) -- start a timer to exit on.paint() but keep in mind that we have to redraw the screen
 
end
 
end
 
 
function on.timer()
 
timer.stop()
 
platform.window:invalidate()
 
end
 
 
function on.charIn(ch)
 
message = "Hello World !" -- store a message
 
platform.window:invalidate() -- force display
 
end
 
 
 
When you open the document, the script is read once. It initializes and overwrites all the functions and globals with the ones you defined. Thus, '''message''' is nil. Once the '''on.paint()''' event is called, '''message''' is nil, thus, nothing is done. When you press a key that calls '''on.charIn()''' (see below for more information), '''message''' is now "Hello World" and we tell the '''platform''' that the screen has to be refreshed. Then, '''on.paint()''' is called again, '''message''' is not nil then we display it, erase '''message''' and launch a timer. Why is that ? Because if we call '''platform.window:invalidate()''' right there, we won't refresh the screen. Why again ? Just look at the pseudo-code above. We set the window as drawn after each call of on.paint(). Thus a timer is necessary to manually recall '''on.paint()''' and exit the '''on.paint()''' function to draw the screen. When the timer is ended, '''on.timer()''' is called and we refresh the screen. The screen is then redrawn but there is nothing to draw because '''message''' is nil. Thus, the graphic context lets the screen blank.
 
 
 
==GC (as in Graphics Context)==
 
 
 
Note: You need to add “gc:” before each of these commands in order to use them. ex. '''gc:setAlpha(...)'''.
 
You can also call gc like this : '''platform.gc():setAlpha(...)'''. Then you can use the gc library in a function where gc is not passed as an argument. but this function *has* to be called within '''on.paint(gc)'''
 
 
 
The maximum screen resolution available to Lua programs is 318 by 212 pixels.
 
 
 
*'''begin''' -
 
*'''clipRect'''(?, x, y, width, height) -
 
*'''drawArc'''(x, y, width, height, start angle, finish angle) Note, to draw a circle, use drawArc(x - diameter/2, y - diameter/2, diameter,diameter,0,360) where x and y are the coordinates of the middle.
 
*'''drawImage'''(image,x,y) First argument in format “[[TI.Image]]”, x and y the coords.
 
*'''drawLine'''(xstart, ystart, xend, yend) Draws a line starting at the point (xstart,ystart) and ending at the point (xend, yend)
 
*'''drawPolyLine'''(int list1 [,int list2, .., int listN]) Draws a shape from a list contaning successively the x and y coordinates of each point the line have to draw.
 
For example
 
drawPolyLine({0,0, 0,100, 100,100, 100,0, 0,0})
 
and
 
drawRect(0,0,100,100)
 
do the same. If there are multiple argument (which can be 4 elements list to represent lines), each list has to contain an even number of element.
 
*'''drawRect'''(x, y, xwidth, yheight) Draws a rectangle at (x,y) with the “x” side being “xwidth” long and the “y” side being “yheight” long
 
*'''drawString'''(string, x, y, PositionString) PositionString is the string’s anchor point and can be “bottom”, “middle”, or “top”.
 
*'''fillArc'''(x, y, width, height, start angle, finish angle) see drawArc
 
*'''fillPolygon'''(int list1 [,int list2, .., int listN]) see drawPolyLine
 
*'''fillRect'''(x, y, width, height) see drawRect
 
*'''finish''' -
 
*'''getStringHeight'''(string)
 
*'''getStringWidth'''(string)
 
*'''isColorDisplay''' Bool (Read-only) Returns 1 if color, 0 if not.
 
*'''setAlpha'''(int) - where the argument is an int between 0 and 255. Sets the transparency.
 
*'''setColorRGB'''(red, green, blue) RGB values are integers, from 0 to 255.
 
*'''setFont'''(font, type, size), with font : {“sansserif”, "serif", ..}, type {“b”, “r”, “i”}, size(int)
 
*'''setPen'''(size, smooth) size {“thin”, “medium”, "thick"}, smooth {“smooth”, "dotted", "dashed"}
 
 
 
==platform==
 
These are mainly read-only. These work by writing "'''platform.'''" in front of them. Example : "'''platform.window:invalidate()'''"
 
*'''apilevel()''' : Returns the version of the API. Currently (OS 3.0.1) returns 1.0.0.
 
*'''window'''
 
: *'''width()''' - Returns the width of the window. Ex : ''platform.window:height()''
 
: *'''height()''' - Returns the height of the window
 
: *'''invalidate()''' - Repaints the window (it calls '''on.paint(gc)''')
 
*''' isDeviceModeRendering()''' Returns true or false whether the unit is "rendering" or not
 
*'''gc''' - Other way to call '''gc'''. Use it like that : '''platform.gc():setAlpha(...)''' for example. This is useful when you're in a function outside '''on.paint(gc)''' (but this function has to be called within on.paint(gc).
 
*'''isColorDisplay()''' Returns ''true'' if the unit the code is being run on has a color display (-> Nspire CX), and ''false'' otherwise.
 
 
 
==cursor==
 
*'''hide'''() - hides the cursor (mouse pointer)
 
*'''set'''(string) - string can be one of those : (interrogation, crosshair, text, pointer, link select, diag resize, wait busy, hollow pointer, rotation, pencil, zoom box, arrow, zoom out, dotted arrow, clear, animate, excel plus, mod label, writing, unavailable, resize row, resize column, drag grab, hand open, hand close, hand pointer, zoom in, dilation, translation).
 
*'''show'''() - Shows the cursor on screen
 
 
 
==document==
 
*'''markChanged'''() - Flag the document as "changed" so the user has to save it after using it.
 
  
==clipboard==
+
==API==
*'''addText'''(string) - adds plain text to the clipboard
 
*'''getText'''() - gets the plain text contained in the clipboard
 
  
==locale==
+
The documentation is now maintained in the "[http://wiki.inspired-lua.org Inspired Lua Wiki]".
*'''name'''() - Returns the current language the calculator is set in, formatted as ISO-639 (i.e : "fr", "en", "it" ...).
+
Please go there in order to have a full detailed documentation based on TI's information.
  
==image==
+
==XML==
*'''__gc'''() - Do not use ! Causes crash : ''(Invalid memory access of location 0x0 eip=0x465cc7ac / Bus error)'' but thats probably just when calling in TI's emulator.
 
*'''copy'''(image, width, height) - returns a new Image which has a new scale. Width is the final width, Heigth, the final height of the image.
 
To make a relative scale, use '''image.copy'''(image, scaleX * '''image.width'''(image), scaleY * '''image.height'''(image))
 
*'''height'''(image) - returns the height of the image given in parameter
 
*'''new'''(string) - Creates a new image from the string given in parameter (see TI.Image). Call it with <tt>img = image.new("...")</tt>
 
*'''width'''(image) - returns the width of the image given in parameter

===Basic structure===
*'''getMilliSecCounter'''() - Returns the amount of milliseconds elapsed since last calculator reboot. (in TI's Computer software, returns an absolute negative time)
 
*'''start'''(int) - Starts a timer with 1 second.

The TI-Nspire allows, since OS v3.0, users to run Lua scripts.

Prerequisites

Lua is only supported starting from OS v3.0.1. You can create Lua applications using the built-in script editor in the TI-Nspire computer software or one of the following third-party tools:

For any OS:

For OS < 3.0.1: these tools won't work with the OS 3.0.2 since the format used is now blocked

  • LUAtoTNS.sh (bash script, works on Linux, Mac OS and Unix, or Windows + Cygwin or Windows + MSYS).
  • maketns.py (Python script, cross-platform)
