getMacros() Function

Introduced in version 1.3b48
Returns a list of the labels of all of the macro buttons on the Current Token. The type of the value returned depends on the delimiter parameter.


getMacros(delim, tokenRef)
getMacros(delim, tokenRef, mapname)


  • delim - The delimiter used to separate the values in the String List, a JSON array is returned if "json" is specified as the delimiter. Defaults to ","
  • 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.


To display all of the macro button labels on the current token use.
[h: macroLabels = getMacros()]
[foreach(macro, macroLabels, "<br>"): macro]
