Listening to Events (DRAFT)

In this tutorial, you are going to achieve:

  1. Understand Events and Callbacks
  2. Be able to register a Callback on an existing Event

Callback Interfaces

There is a series of interfaces named [EventName]Callback. They will handle the events (get called by mixins), invoke callbacks which are registered on mod initialization.

Callback Interfaces in Fabric API

Event Callbacks provided by Fabric API can be found in net.fabricmc.fabric.api.event package.

Here is a partial list of existing callbacks.

Player Interactive Events

Registry Events

Looting Events


There is an example using LootTableLoadingCallback you can find here.

World Events

Server Events

Network Events

Custom Callbacks

Although there are plenty of events already provided by Fabric API, you can still make your own events. Please refer to events.

Let's see Take AttackBlockCallback as an example for how register a listener

Basically, we are going to … (an event listener) callback to listen the event.

Since there is not more a method that is able to be called on a block clicked, you may want to. If you want to make a ;

As stated in javadoc of AttackBlockCallback, this event accepts ; You can interrupt and stop continuing by sending ActionResult.SUCCESS;

 * Callback for left-clicking ("attacking") a block.
 * Is hooked in before the spectator check, so make sure to check for the player's game mode as well!
 * <p>Upon return:
 * <ul><li>SUCCESS cancels further processing and, on the client, sends a packet to the server.
 * <li>PASS falls back to further processing.
 * <li>FAIL cancels further processing and does not send a packet to the server.</ul>
 * <p>ATTACK_BLOCK does not let you control the packet sending process yet.

<!– TODO: Really do sth. –>

  1. public class ExampleMod implements ModInitializer
  2. {
  3. [...]
  5. @Override
  6. public void onInitialize() {
  7. AttackBlockCallback.EVENT.register((player, world, hand, pos, direction) -> {
  8. // Do sth...
  9. if ([condition]) {
  10. return ActionResult.SUCCESS;
  11. } else {
  12. return ActionResult.PASS;
  13. }
  15. })
  16. }
  17. }
