Part 11: UI Control IDs

The following tables provide a list of string identifiers (where known) that can be used as input to the IDMaker.FromString method to obtain the Int32 for the UI control button. This identifier can then be used with methods such as LockUIControl or UnlockUIControl to disable or enable specific build buttons. String identifiers are (for the most part) only defined for those build buttons that are covered in the tutorials. However, it has been possible (by means of scripting) to obtain the Int32 identifier directly in other cases - these are given in the table below. Int32 values can be found for most, but not all build buttons.

Storage and markets

Note that the trade depot and port build buttons work differently: up to 5 build buttons are available for these, if 5 or more trade routes are open (but the player has not yet placed the trade depots or ports). "Depot0" refers to the first of these that are listed, through to "Depot4" as the fifth. Trade depots and ports are listed in the order that the routes appear in the XML file (so site #0 will always occupy the "Depot0" or "DepotDock0" slot). If "Depot0" is locked you can still place the first listed route if it is a trade port and "DepotDock0" has not been locked.
