WoW API < GetAddOnInfo

Get information about an AddOn.

name, title, notes, enabled, loadable, reason, security = GetAddOnInfo(index or "name")

Parameters Edit

Arguments Edit

(index or "name")
index 
Integer - The index of the AddOn in the user's AddOn list. Note that you cannot access Blizzard-provided AddOns through this mechanism.
name 
String - The name of the AddOn to be queried. You can access Blizzard-provided AddOns through this mechanism.

Returns Edit

name, title, notes, enabled, loadable, reason, security
name 
String - The name of the AddOn (the folder name).
title 
String - The title of the AddOn as listed in the .toc file (presumably this is the appropriate localized one).
notes 
String - The notes about the AddOn from its .toc file (presumably this is the appropriate localized one).
enabled 
Flag - Indicates if the AddOn is currently enabled, 1 if it is, nil if it is not.
loadable 
Flag - Indicates if the AddOn is eligible to be loaded, 1 if it is, nil if it is not. Currently returns 1 if the addon is LoadOnDemand in the .toc file or if the addon is already loaded.
reason 
String - The reason why the AddOn cannot be loaded. This is nil if the addon is loadable or already loaded, otherwise it contains a code indicating the reason. (Observed reason codes: "DISABLED", "MISSING", "INTERFACE_VERSION")
security 
String - Indicates the security status of the AddOn. This is currently "INSECURE" for all user provided addons and "SECURE" for Blizzard_* AddOns.

Notes Edit

  • If the function is passed a string, name will always be the value passed, so check if reason equals "MISSING" to find out if an addon exists.
  • index or "name" is not case sensitive, at least not on Windows.
  • If the function is passed a number that is out of range, you will get an error message, specifically [<file name>]:<line number> AddOn index must be in the range of 1 to <GetNumAddOns()>
