DetailsEdit

Remember, chatItemLink(s) are different than itemLink parameters needed by many APIs. To properly extract an itemLink from a chatItemLink, here is a neat function:
--[[ Function: extractItemLinkFromChatItemLink
     Purpose: gets an item link string from a chat item link string
     Note: don't ask questions, it works
  ]]
function extractItemLinkFromChatItemLink(message)
  local _, _, _, _itemLink = string.find(message, "(|H(.+)|h)");
  _, _, _itemLink = string.find(_itemLink, "(.-|h)");
  return _itemLink;
end
Here is a chatItemLink Example:
|cffffffff|Hitem:3771:0:0:0|h[Wild Hog Shank]|h|r
Here is an itemLink Example:
item:3771:0:0:0
