The unit IDs tracked by the library are:

  • "player"
  • "vehicle"
  • "pet", "pettarget"
  • "target", "targettarget"
  • "focus", "focustarget"
  • "arena1", ..., "arena5"
  • "arena1target", ..., "arena5target"
  • "arenapet1", ..., "arenapet5"
  • "arenapet1target", ... "arenapet5target"
  • "boss1", ..., "boss5"
  • "boss1target", ..., "boss5target"
  • "party1", ..., "party4"
  • "party1target", ..., "party4target"
  • "partypet1", ..., "partypet4"
  • "partypet1target", ..., "partypet4target"
  • "raid1", ..., "raid40"
  • "raid1target", ..., "raid40target"
  • "raidpet1", ..., "raidpet40"
  • "raidpet1target", ..., "raidpet40target"
  • "nameplate1", ...
  • "nameplate1target", ...

API Methods

HasUnitEvents

Returns whether the unit ID receives unit events, e.g., UNIT_AURA, UNIT_TARGET, etc.

boolean = lib:HasUnitEvents(unit)

Arguments:

  • unit – string: unit ID, e.g., "player", "party1", "raid15", etc.

Returns:

  • boolean – boolean: true if the unit receives unit events, or false otherwise

GetGUIDByUnit

Returns the GUID currently associated with the unit.

guid = lib:GetGUIDByUnit(unit)

Arguments:

  • unit – string: unit ID, e.g., "player", "party1", "raid15", etc.

Returns:

  • guid – string: GUID of the unit

GetUnitByGUID

Returns a list of units currently associated with the GUID.

unit1, unit2, ..., unitN = lib:GetUnitByGUID(guid)

Arguments:

  • guid – string: GUID

Returns:

  • unit1, unit2, ..., unitN – list of strings: variable-length list of unit ID strings

GetNameByUnit

Returns the name currently associated with the unit.

name = lib:GetNameByUnit(unit)

Arguments:

  • unit – string: unit ID, e.g., "player", "party1", "raid15", etc.

Returns:

  • name – string: the name of the unit, name or name-realm

GetUnitByName

Returns a list of units currently associated with the name.

unit1, unit2, ..., unitN = lib:GetUnitByName(name)

Arguments:

  • name – string: name or name-realm

Returns:

  • unit1, unit2, ..., unitN – list of strings: variable-length list of unit ID strings

GetNameByGUID

Returns the name currently associated with the GUID.

name = lib:GetNameByGUID(guid)

Arguments:

  • guid – string: GUID

Returns:

  • name – string: the name associated with the GUID, name or name-realm

GetGUIDByName

Returns a list of GUIDs currently associated with the name.

guid1, guid2, ..., guidN = lib:GetGUIDByName(name)

Arguments:

  • name – string: name or name-realm

Returns:

  • guid1, guid2, ..., guidN – list of strings: variable-length list of GUID strings

GetPetUnitByUnit

Returns the unit ID assigned to the pet for the unit, even if the pet does not exist.

petUnit = lib:GetPetUnitByUnit(unit)

Arguments:

  • unit – string: unit ID, e.g., "player", "party1", "raid15", etc.

Returns:

  • petUnit – string: unit ID, e.g., "pet", "partypet1", "raidpet15", etc.

GetOwnerGUIDByGUID

Returns the GUID of the owner of the pet or vehicle GUID if both are on the group roster.

ownerGUID = lib:GetOwnerGUIDByGUID(guid)

Arguments:

  • guid – string: GUID of the pet or vehicle

Returns:

  • ownerGUID – string: GUID of the owner

GetTargetUnitByUnit

Returns the unit ID assigned to the target for the unit, even if the target does not exist.

targetUnit = lib:GetTargetUnitByUnit(unit)

Arguments:

  • unit – string: unit ID, e.g., "player", "party1", "raid15", etc.

Returns:

  • targetUnit – string: unit ID, e.g., "target", "party1target", "raid15target", etc.

IsGUIDInGroup

Returns whether the GUID is on the group roster.

boolean = lib:IsGUIDInGroup(guid)

Arguments:

  • guid – string: GUID to test group membership

Returns:

  • boolean – boolean: true if the unit is on the group roster, or false otherwise

IterateRoster

Returns an iterator that gives key-value pairs of GUID and unit ID for members on the group roster.

for guid, unit in lib:IteratorRoster() do
    ...
end

RegisterCallback

Registers a function to handle the specified callback.

lib.RegisterCallback(handler, callback, method, arg)

Arguments:

  • handler – table/string: your addon object or another table containing a function at handler[method], or a string identifying your addon
  • callback – string: the name of the callback to be registered
  • method – string/function/nil: a key into the handler table, or a function to be called, or nil if handler is a table and a function exists at handler[callback]
  • arg – a value to be passed as the first argument to the callback function specified by method

Notes:

  • If handler is a table, method is a string, and handler[method] is a function, then that function will be called with handler as its first argument, followed by the callback name and the callback-specific arguments.
  • If handler is a table, method is nil, and handler[callback] is a function, then that function will be called with handler as its first argument, followed by the callback name and the callback-specific arguments.
  • If handler is a string and method is a function, then that function will be called with the callback name as its first argument, followed by the callback-specific arguments.
  • If arg is non-nil, then it will be passed to the specified function. If handler is a table, then arg will be passed as the second argument, pushing the callback name to the third position. Otherwise, arg will be passed as the first argument.

UnregisterCallback

Unregisters a specified callback.

lib.UnregisterCallback(handler, callback)

Arguments:

  • handler – table/string: your addon object or a string identifying your addon
  • callback – string: the name of the callback to be unregistered
