Wont update

I am working on a gui sys for a server and got a problem, im using client.ammo, its showing the img correctly and all, but it wont update if i have client.ammo = 1, and change to 10, then i need to update the script for it to change..

So thats what i need help with right now, so it will update, some one?
PHP Code:
//#CLIENTSIDE
function onCreated()
{
  for (
i=1i<client.ammoi+=1)
  {
    
showimg(200+i"mercia_newgui.png"screenwidth 302 -(i*4), screenheight 75);
    
changeimgpart(200+i220137510);
    
changeimgvis(200+i5);
  }
  
setshape(13232*client.ammo);
  
setTimer(.5);

You need to redraw it when the ammo count changes, but I can't help you with that since I don't know the context.

However, a brute force solution can look like this:
PHP Code:
//#CLIENTSIDE
function onCreated()
{
  
setTimer(.5);
}

function 
onTimeout()
{
  
hideimgs(200300);
  
  for (
i=1i<client.ammoi+=1)
  {
    
showimg(200+i"mercia_newgui.png"screenwidth 302 -(i*4), screenheight 75);
    
changeimgpart(200+i220137510);
    
changeimgvis(200+i5);
  }
  
setshape(13232*client.ammo);
  
setTimer(0.05);

Nooo!! I know your intentions are well but it's never a good idea to start scripters off like that, at least without mentioning the correct way (sorry if I come off rude, not my goal at all).

Ideally the gun system or whatever changes that value would send a "trigger" to the GUI system, and update it. This reduces the processor power needed to run the loop 20 times a second hiding and then reshowing all the images.

Also, not sure what this is supposed to do:
PHP Code:
setshape(13232*client.ammo); 
setShape() is for level NPCs. You don't need to use it for setting the size of showimgs
