getMacroProps() Function

Introduced in version 1.3b48
Returns a property list of the properties for a macro button for the Current Token. You can retrieve the index of a macro button with the getMacroIndexes() or getMacroButtonIndex() function. The type of the value returned depends on the delimiter parameter.


getMacroProps(index, delim)
getMacroProps(index, delim, tokenRef)
getMacroProps(index, delim, tokenRef, mapname)


  • index - The index of the macro button.
  • delim - The delimiter used to separate the values in the string property list which defaults to ";" if not specified. This function returns a JSON Object if "json" is specified.
  • tokenRef - Either the token id or Token Name of the token that the function is executed on. From v1.15, accepts "campaign" and "gm" as ids for the relevant panels.

     Note: This parameter can only be used in a Trusted Macro

  • mapname - The name of the map to find the token. Defaults to the current map.
Token IDs are unique, but Token Names can be duplicated. Using Token Name when more than one token has the same name can produce unexpected results.

Macro Buttons Properties Returned

  • metadata - A JSON Object holding the metadata key/value pairs for the macro.
    • uuid -
    • commandChecksum -
    • propsChecksum -
  • See createMacro() for a list of all other properties.
