setGMName() Function

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

Introduced in version 1.3b49
Sets the GM Name of a token.


setGMName(name, tokenRef)
setGMName(name, tokenRef, mapname)


  • name - A string that is set as the GM Name on the token.
  • tokenRef - Either the token id or Token Name of the token that has its GM Name set. Defaults to the Current Token.
  • 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.


Sets the GM Name of the Current Token to New GM Name.
[h: setGMName("New GM Name")]

Sets the GM Name of all selected tokens to New GM Name.

[h: SelectedTokens = getSelected()]
[h,foreach(TokenID, SelectedTokens), code:
[h: setGMName("New GM Name", TokenID)]
