Gets information about a raid member.

name, rank, subgroup, level, class, fileName, 
  zone, online, isDead, role, isML = GetRaidRosterInfo(raidIndex);

Parameters Edit

Arguments Edit

raidIndex 
Number - Index of raid member between 1 and MAX_RAID_MEMBERS (40). If you specify an index that is out of bounds, the function returns nil.

Returns Edit

name
String - raid member's name. In cross-realm battlegrounds, returns "Name-Server" for cross-realm players.
rank
Integer - Returns 2 if the raid member is the leader of the raid, 1 if the raid member is promoted to assistant, and 0 otherwise.
subgroup
Integer - The raid party this character is currently a member of. Raid subgroups are numbered as on the standard raid window.
level
Number - The level of the character. If this character is offline, the level will show as 0 (not nil).
class
String - The character's class (localized), with the first letter capitalized (e.g. "Priest"). This function works as normal for offline characters.
fileName
String - The system representation of the character's class; always in english, always fully capitalized.
zone
String - The name of the zone this character is currently in. This is the value returned by GetRealZoneText. It is the same value you see if you mouseover their portrait (if in group). If the character is offline, this value will be the string "Offline".
BUG (as of 6/07/2013): Sometimes values are different, example: Thron des Donners and Der Thron des Donners.
BUG (as of 2/26/2005): It seems that the person calling this function will have their Zone value returned as nil if they have not changed locations since last reloading their UI. Once you change locations (get the name to popup on screen), it seems to return as normal. This only seems to affect when you look at the zone value of yourself from the raid. Could a call to SetMapToCurrentZone() cure this?
You should use functions categorised under Location Functions for getting your own location text --Salanex
Possible values: nil, "Offline", any valid location
online
Boolean - Returns 1 if raid member is online, nil otherwise.
isDead
Boolean - Returns 1 if raid member is dead (hunters Feigning Death are considered alive), nil otherwise.
role
String - The player's role within the raid ("maintank" or "mainassist").
isML
Boolean - Returns 1 if the raid member is master looter, nil otherwise

Details Edit

Do not make any assumptions about raidid (raid1, raid2, etc) to name mappings remaining the same or not. When the raid changes, people MAY retain it or not, depending on raid size and WoW patch. Yes, this behavior has changed with patches in the past and may do it again.
