ParametersEdit

ArgumentsEdit

unit 
UnitId - The unit whose guild information you wish to query.

ReturnsEdit

guildName 
String - The name of the guild the unit is in (or nil?).
guildRankName 
String - unit's rank in unit's guild.
guildRankIndex 
Integer - unit's rank (index). - zero based index (0 is Guild Master, 1 and above are lower ranks)

DetailsEdit

  • You may use a name in the argument for this function
  • This function only works in close proximity to the unit you are trying to get info from. I don't know the distance, but it is the same distance that the character portrait loads if you are in party with them. It will abandon the data shortly after you leave the area, even if the portrait is remembered.
  • If using with UnitId "player" on loading it happens that this value is nil even if the player is in a guild. I wrote a little function which checks in the GUILD_ROSTER_UPDATE and PLAYER_GUILD_UPDATE events, if guild name is available. As long as it is not, no actions are fired by my guild event handling.


   local status = true
   if IsInGuild()
   then
       local test = GetGuildInfo("player")
       if (test == nil)
       then
           status = false 
       end
   end
   
   return status
