getProperty() Function

Introduced in version 1.3b48
Returns the value of a Token Property on a Token. If the Token Property is empty (NULL) or not defined, an empty string ("") is returned.


getProperty(property, tokenRef)
getProperty(property, tokenRef, mapname)


  • property - The property that has its value returned. For referencing the literal name of the property (for instance, if you wish to get the property Constitution configured in Campaign Properties), enclose the property name in quotes. If using a variable whose value is the name of the property, do not enclose the variable name in quotes.
  • tokenRef - Either the token id or Token Name of the token, defaults to the Current Token.

     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.


Getting a property using the literal property name.
The value of property 'Strength' is [r: getProperty("Strength")].

This will output the following if Strength has the value 18:

The value of property 'Strength' is 18.

Getting a property using a variable.

[h:desiredProperty = "Constitution"]
The value of property 'Constitution' is [r: getProperty(desiredProperty)].

This will output the following if Constitution has the value 12:

The value of property 'Constitution' is 12.
