The message will appear in the chat box but can only be seen by the user specified with 'playerid'. The line will start with the sender's name in their color, followed by the message in white.
Avoid using format specifiers in your messages without formatting the string that is sent. It will result in crashes otherwise.

(playerid, senderid, message[])

int senderid The sender's ID. If invalid, the message will not be sent.
string message The message that will be sent.

  • 1: The function was executed successfully.
  • 0: The function failed to execute. This means the player specified does not exist.

public OnPlayerCommandText(playerid, cmdtext[])
    if(!strcmp(cmdtext, "/hello", true))
        SendPlayerMessageToPlayer(0, playerid, "Hello ID 0!"); //Will send a message to the user with the ID 0 in the name of the user who typed '/hello'.
        // Assuming 'playerid' is called Tenpenny, the output will be 'Tenpenny: Hello ID 0!'
