getTokenVBL() Function

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

Introduced in version
Gets the VBL attached to a token as a JSON object.



This macro function is used used to get a JSON object describing the TOKEN VBL attached to a token. The returned JSON object can then be used with setTokenVBL(), drawVBL()or eraseVBL().

Token VBL is attached to and moves with the token. It can be set (or cleared) under the VBL tab on the Edit Token dialog and is colored YELLOW. Normal VBL is static, can be created with the VBL drawing tools or with the use of VBL functions and is colored BLUE.


  • tokenRef - OPTIONAL: Either the token id or Token Name of the token for which you want to get the VBL. Defaults to the Current Token.
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.


[h: vbl = getTokenVBL("Door, Steel")]
[h: setTokenVBL(vbl, "Door, Wood")]
