sendToBack() Function

Introduced in version 1.3b48
Adjust the z-order (or draw order) of the Token so that it is drawn before all other Tokens on the same Map Layer, this has the effect of making the Token appear to be in back of the other Tokens as it will be obscured by other Tokens on the same Map Layer in the same location.


sendToBack(tokenRef, mapname)


  • tokenRef - Either the token id or Token Name of the token that has its z-order changed, 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.


Sends the Current Token to the lowest z-order.
[h: sendToBack()]

Sends all of the selected tokens to the lowest z-order.

[h: tokens = getSelected()]
[h, foreach(id, tokens, ""), code:
    [h: sendToBack(id)]
