The UI trigger actions are generally used for controlling the User Interface. Some actions are only usable by Blizzard and their maps. Many are self-explanatory, so this page will include more specific information about what they each do.

Text Triggers

Clear Text Messages

Clear all of the specified text messages currently being displayed for the specified player(s). Message type presets include: All Messages, Chat Messages, Cinematic Messages, Directive Messages, Objective Messages, and Subtitle Messages.

Alerts/Cheats/Tips/Tutorials/Help Panel

Clear Alerts

Clears all alert messages and spacebar points for the specified player.

Clear All Tip Alerts

Clears all currently displayed tip alerts for the specified player(s). Tips can still be viewed in the Help Panel.

Create Alert At Point

Create an alert at a point for a specified player. There are 117 Alert Types to choose from which determines what the In-Game voice will say. A spacebar point is created at the alert's target point. The alert's text is the text that will show up when the user presses spacebar to jump to that alert's location. The custom alert icon does not appear to show up in-game but may be somewhere I have not looked.

Create Alert At Unit

Same as "Create Alert At Point", except this action targets a unit instead of a point.

Create Alert With No Source

Same as "Create Alert At Point", except this action has no target and, therefore, will not create a spacebar point. However, the alert's text will still show up when the player presses spacebar.

Create Cheat

Creates a tip on the help panel with a button that must be pressed for the tip to be displayed.
