I try to prevent deleting a locked item with a LUA script

When I'm trying to delete items in a skybox, it happens quite often that I hit the floor in stead. Ofcourse I locked the box but when I'm in a hurry I still say 'yes' once in a while when the system asks if I want to delete the object anyway. I thought I'd intercept that with LUA, but then I read in the manual for OnNotification(name, id, message), the note "for now alerts and group notifications do not trigger such an event".

I tried to make this work, but now I wonder if these are such alerts that will not trigger an event:

--Stop locked items from being taken into inventory
function OnNotification(name, id, message)
if string.find(name, "ConfirmObjectTakeLock") and string.find(message, " sure you want ") then
CancelNotification(dialog_id)
print(message)
end
end

--Stop locked items from being deleted: locked should be locked
function OnNotification(name, id, message)
if string.find(name, "ConfirmObjectTakeDelete") and string.find(message, " sure you want ") then
CancelNotification(dialog_id)
print(message)
end
end

Since these are alerts and not notifications, they are indeed not intercepted by Lua...

Alerts would need a different Lua callback since they expect a reply and cannot normally "just be cancelled" (ignored) without one proper reply.

I will see what can be done but, for now, you cannot intercept these.

Thank you. The CoolVL viewer is often safer for me than other viewers when I'm at work. I was trying to make a few things even safer.

Thank you very much for adding these!

This now prevents me from deleting or taking floors from under items that are not always easy to select. It comes handy when I do G&S farming and wine making:

--Stop locked items from being deleted: locked should be locked
function OnAlertDialog(name, dialog_id, message, buttons)
if string.find(name, "ConfirmObjectDeleteLock") and string.find(message, " sure you want ") then
AlertDialogResponse(dialog_id, 2)
print("You cannot delete this object since you locked it.")
else
--Stop locked items from being taken into inventory
if string.find(name, "ConfirmObjectTakeLock") and string.find(message, " sure you want ") then
AlertDialogResponse(dialog_id, 2)
print("You can not take the item as long as it is locked.")
end
end
