WoW API < GetMapInfo
mapFileName, textureHeight, textureWidth = GetMapInfo();

Return the map information about the current world map texture.


Arguments
none

Returns
mapFileName, textureHeight, textureWidth
mapFileName 
String - The name of the file containing the textures for the current world map (nil for the whole world, BUT the official API catches this with a comment of Temporary Hack and uses the value "World" instead!)
textureHeight 
Number - The height of the specified texture (0 if no texture)
textureWidth 
Number - The width of the specified texture (0 if no texture) (This is a guess, it's not used in the UI)

DetailsP

Note that the width and height aren't in a consistent order with most of the other API functions. Neither of the values are used by the UI so it's impossible to tell whether this is a deliberate inconsistency or a typo! The return values would appear to imply they are, however, reversed from the usual width, height convention.
