The uiShowRestMenu event is raised when the rest menu is about to be displayed. It allows the callback to change if sleeping is allowed, or to prevent the UI from showing at all.

--- @param e uiShowRestMenuEventData
local function uiShowRestMenuCallback(e)
event.register(tes3.event.uiShowRestMenu, uiShowRestMenuCallback)


This event supports blocking by setting e.block to true or returning false. Blocking the event prevents vanilla behavior from happening. For example, blocking an equip event prevents the item from being equipped.


An event can be claimed by setting e.claim to true, or by returning false from the callback. Claiming the event prevents any lower priority callbacks from being called.

Event Data⚓︎

  • allowRest (boolean): true if the player is allowed to sleep (determined primarily from the cell flags), or false if they must wait instead. This value can be modified.
  • scripted (boolean): Read-only. This value is true when the menu is shown from using the ShowRestMenu or equivalent function.
