Ok This is driving me insane.

I have a parameter set like so.
Code:
 * @param Status Window Opacity
 * @desc Enter window transparancy.
 * @default 0
 *
I then have this code referencing it.
Code:
this._statusWindow.opacity = parameters['Status Window Opacity'];

Now when i run my project with the the parameter set in place I get the error.
Undefined is not a function...

But if I just manual put in
Code:
this._statusWindow.opacity = 0;
Then run the game. It works just fine.

I am at a loss. The error refers to this in the console.
Code:
SceneManager.catchException = function(e) {
    if (e instanceof Error) {
        Graphics.printError(e.name, e.message);
        console.error(e.stack); <------ Stops right here
    } else {
        Graphics.printError('UnknownError', e);
    }
    AudioManager.stopAll();
    this.stop();
};

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advanced. I am still learning JS.

You need to first get the parameters from the PluginManager like so:
Code:
var parameters = PluginManager.parameters("myPlugin");
Then since you want a number you need to convert it to one using parseInt for example:
Code:
var aNumber = parseInt(parameters.myNumber || 0, 10);
Notice that I am basically saying that if myNumber does not exist use 0 instead using 10 as the base.
Now you can assign aNumber where you need it.

Hmm that's not working for some reason either. but maybe I'm not inputing it. right here is the whole script.
Plus the need to be able to put any number in there. the values equal 0 to 255.

i added the
Code:
    var StatusOpacity = parseInt(parameters.myNumber || 0, 10);
and then
Code:
 this._statusWindow.opacity = StatusOpacity;

but it doesn't do anything. :/

Here is the whole script

But if i remove those two lines everything works fine again.

Nope actually that didnt work at all. Now if it was on StatusWindow.x = then it works fine but when i put it on opacity i get the same undefinded function error.

here is the current code.

Note that the parameters.myNumber was just an example variable. In your case since you use spaces in your parameter names you need to use the bracket notation or parameters["Status Window Opacity"]. I also noticed you did not have Status Window Opacity listed as a parameter in your script. So a complete example would be:
Code:
/*:
* @param Status Window Opacity
* @desc Opacity of the status window
* @default 0
*/
(function () {
var parameters = PluginManager.parameters('UIC-MainMenus-Alpha');
var StatusOpacity = parseInt(parameters["Status Window Opacity"] || 0, 10);

 // do some stuff
     Scene_MenuBase.prototype.setOpacity = function () {
         if (StatusOpacity >= 0 || StatusOpacity <= 255) {
             this._statusWindow.opacity = StatusOpacity;
         } else {
             this._statusWindow.opacity = 0;
         }
     }
})()

That is actually what it was named before i just called it myNumber to quickly test it out your snippet.
But the if statement is still seems a bit much. May if I simplify the question a bit.

I just need it to input what ever number they input in the plugin manager to be input into that parameter.

And every way i do it. whether I use a variable or just a direct @param Command Window Opacity and parameters['Command Window Opacity'] or even try doing it with a variable. So basically no matter what input has been getting put in there it wont excpet it. but it I manually type it in and remove the paramater it works fine.

it just seems no matter what parameter is set in there it just wont use it. Still get the undefinded is not a function.
Basically
this._statusWindow.opacity = 0; <--- any number here works. the value equals the opacity level. but only if i hand code it.
this._statusWindow.opacity = parameters['Status Window Opacity']; <-- any param i put here wont work

Sorry misread one of your functions the function that I posted should be:
Code:
Scene_Menu.prototype.setOpacity = function () {
    if (StatusOpacity >= 0 && StatusOpacity <= 255) {
        this._statusWindow.opacity = StatusOpacity;
    } else {
        this._statusWindow.opacity = 0;
    }
}
Anyway tested it and I don't receive any errors. And the status window changes opacity according to what the parameter is. If you continue having errors then something must not be set up right or you might be having a plugin conflict.

Edit: Also you need to call the above function inside the Scene_Menu.prototype.create function by using this.setOpacity(). Otherwise no changes will be made.

Just a hint, but if you keep having undefined errors and you don't think it's your plugin, try play testing or refreshing the plugin in the PluginManager.

Also I would do
Code:
Number(parameters['Status Window Opacity']);
Should convert it to a number before the game think it's a string, and make sure that there's no unnecessary spaces on the line for @param Status Window Opacity <--.

There should be no if statement as the function does require one.... it just needs to be a number value. any number. they just need to go to be able to go to the plugin manage and type a number and what ever number they type will go into
this._statusWindow.opacity = parameters['Status Window Opacity]; but i cant seem to put a variable after this._statusWindow.opacity of any kind.

And that is the thing . That is exactly how it was set up and it just doenst work. it works for every other variable on the page done in the exact same way. but not there.

This seems like its closer to the right path.

But what I simply dont understand is why i can do
this._statusWindow.y = parameters['Status Window Y Position']; <-- input any number in the param and it accepts it.
But not this.
this._statusWindow.opacity = parameters['Status Window Opacity']; <-- I put any number into the param here. i get undefined error. Its just supposed to be putting what i tell it to there right. why why if i hard a code a 142 it works but if i use a parameter to have a user input 142 it doesn't work. it makes now sense. :/ if i had hair it would be falling out. :p

The reason I used an if statement is typically opacity values should not be less than 0 and not greater than 255. As for why it is not working: do you have additional plugins in the project? Does it work if it is the only plugin turned on?

Here is what worked for me:

@Kino I prefer using parseInt over Number for a few reasons in some cases of user error and reduces some of the work for rounding removing unwanted floats:
Code:
Number("5.8")
//5.8
parseInt("5.8", 10)
//5

Yea I use parseInt sometimes too; in this case it's a lot better since they're working with opacity. Also, might be another plugin conflicting with your code. If this problem persists restarting MV or looking over your params is important. Extra whitespace can ruin things.

Also if it's such a problem, do this:
Code:
console.log (parameters)
And look at the defined parameters.

Man I really wasn't thinking well yesterday had an or (||) in that if statement when it should have been and (&&). Updated my above post.
If you don't want to show all the parameters you can use:
Code:
console.log(parameters["Status Window Opacity"]) //or whatever parameter you want to check.
This should log either undefined or the value of the parameter.

Yeah I was super tired as well when I was posting last night. lol So its all good. I didn't even really see what the if statement was doing till I looked back at it today. But yeah weird. The first time I put it in my plug in manager it still didn't work. I even created a new game and dropped it in and it still didn't work. I used steam to verify the integrity of the software. It add some random file. Now its working fine.

So maybe the problem wasn't even the code at all.
Well the inital problem was definitely the code, but why it wasn't working for me may have been a different issue.

Anywho...
Thank you guys both for your help. I've been doing a bit more research on both your methods and its starting to click a bit more for me.

What I still don't get is why the first param below works and the latter does not.

Why wasn't I able to use the same method as :

Code:
 * @param Status Window Y Position
 * @desc Enter the Y Cord you want your Status window to be. Value is in px.
 * @default 0

this._statusWindow.y = parameters['Status Window Y Position'];

for

Code:
* @param Status Window Opacity
* @desc Opacity of the status window
* @default 0
*

this._statusWindow.opacity = parameters['Status Window Opacity'];

You know, your right. And as a web developer I really should have been using the console. :p I keep forgetting about F8. Isn't there a way to have the console open automatically natively, or will i have to write a script for this too. I need to run it though a linter too. For when it starts become a bigger project.

Just an extra note that all parameters are strings until you convert them to the type of data that you are expecting.
So:
Code:
* @param Status Window Y Position
* @desc Enter the Y Cord you want your Status window to be. Value is in px.
* @Default 0

this._statusWindow.y = parameters['Status Window Y Position'];
This is setting this._statusWindow.y to a string not a number. You might have the parameter set to 5 for example in the plugin manager but when it sets it to this._statusWindow.y it will be set as "5".

Ohhh. I get it. And that right there make the most complete sense. ok. So it has to be converted into an integer. Cause the param is a string. Thank you.
