# GetVehicleDistanceFromPoint

### From SA-MP Wiki

**Description:**

This function can be used to calculate the distance (as a float) between a vehicle and another map coordinate. This can be useful to detect how far a vehicle away is from a location.

**Parameters:**

(vehicleid, Float:X, Float:Y, Float:Z)

vehicleid | The ID of the vehicle to calculate the distance for. |

Float:X | The X map coordinate. |

Float:Y | The Y map coordinate. |

Float:Z | The Z map coordinate. |

**Return Values:**

A float containing the distance from the point specified in the coordinates.

**Example Usage:**

/* when the player types 'vendingmachine' in to the chat box, they'll see this.*/ public OnPlayerText(playerid, text[]) { if(strcmp(text, "vendingmachine", true) == 0) { new Float: fDistance = GetVehicleDistanceFromPoint(GetPlayerVehicleID(playerid), 237.9, 115.6, 1010.2), szMessage[44]; format(szMessage, sizeof(szMessage), "You're %f away from our vending machine.", fDistance); SendClientMessage(playerid, 0xA9C4E4FF, szMessage); } return 0; }
