setProperty() Function

Introduced in version 1.3b48
Sets the value of a Token Property on the Current Token (unless trusted, in which case a Token ID can be supplied to indicate which token is to be affected). Note that if there is not already an existing property by the name listed in the macro, setProperty will create a new Token Property with that name. Any created Property will not be visible in the Properties tab of the Edit Token window but can still be used like normal. It's value can be retrieved with the getProperty command.


setProperty(property, value)
setProperty(property, value, tokenRef)
setProperty(property, value, tokenRef, mapname)


  • property - A string containing the name of the property that has its value set.
  • value - The value that the property is set to.
  • tokenRef - Either the token id or Token Name of the token which has its property set, 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.


Sets a property named Health to the value of 10 on the Current Token.
[h: setProperty("Health", 10)]

Sets a property named Fatigue to the value of 5 on the selected token.

[h: setProperty("Fatigue", 5, getSelected())]

Sets a property named Strength to the value of 20 on the selected token using variables.

[h: Property = "Strength"]
[h: Value = 20]
[h: ID = getSelected()]
[h: setProperty(Property, Value, ID)]
