How to implement a Networking Line Renderer in my Script?

Hey Im having some trouble with my script. I want the Line Renderer to be synced but I dont know how. Even after some research I dont know how to do it. May someone please write these RPC function into my script?

using UnityEngine;

using Photon.Pun;


public class GrapplingGun : MonoBehaviour {

PhotonView PV;

[Header("AimAssist")]

[SerializeField] float aimAssistSize = 1;

[SerializeField] GameObject AssistVisualizer;

RaycastHit hit;

[Header("GrapplingHook")]

private LineRenderer lr;

public Vector3 grapplePoint;

public LayerMask whatIsGrappleable;

public Transform gunTip, camera, player;

private float maxDistance = 100f;

private SpringJoint joint;



void Awake() {

lr = GetComponent<LineRenderer>();

AssistVisualizer.SetActive(false);

PV = GetComponent<PhotonView>();

}

void Update()

{

if(PV.IsMine)

{

if (Physics.SphereCast(camera.position, aimAssistSize, camera.forward, out hit, maxDistance, whatIsGrappleable)) {

AssistVisualizer.transform.transform.position = hit.point;

}

if (Input.GetMouseButtonDown(0)) {

StartGrapple();

}

else if (Input.GetMouseButtonUp(0)) {

StopGrapple();

}

}

}


//Called after Update

void LateUpdate() {

DrawRope();

}


/// <summary>

/// Call whenever we want to start a grapple

/// </summary>

void StartGrapple() {



{

if (Physics.SphereCast(camera.position, aimAssistSize, camera.forward, out hit, maxDistance, whatIsGrappleable)) {

grapplePoint = hit.point;

joint = player.gameObject.AddComponent<SpringJoint>();

joint.autoConfigureConnectedAnchor = false;

joint.connectedAnchor = grapplePoint;


float distanceFromPoint = Vector3.Distance(player.position, grapplePoint);


//The distance grapple will try to keep from grapple point.

joint.maxDistance = distanceFromPoint * 0.8f;

joint.minDistance = distanceFromPoint * 0.25f;


//Adjust these values to fit your game.

joint.spring = 4.5f;

joint.damper = 7f;

joint.massScale = 4.5f;


lr.positionCount = 2;

currentGrapplePosition = gunTip.position;

AssistVisualizer.SetActive(false);

}

}

}



/// <summary>

/// Call whenever we want to stop a grapple

/// </summary>

void StopGrapple() {

lr.positionCount = 0;

Destroy(joint);

AssistVisualizer.SetActive(true);

}


private Vector3 currentGrapplePosition;

    To render a line, you have to provide an array of points. So you could turn your drawing movement into a series of vectors and send that. Avoid sending every point on it's own and instead send a few of them every 0.x seconds instead.

    Aside from using RPCs you could also setup a networked object with a PhotonView and have it call OnPhotonSerializeView() on a script of your own. I there, write / read the array and apply it to a line renderer.
