WoW API < GetInboxNumItems

numItems, totalItems = GetInboxNumItems()

Reports the number of messages in the client's inbox.

Example[]

if ( totalItems > numItems) then
 InboxTooMuchMail:Show();
else
  InboxTooMuchMail:Hide();
end 

Details[]

Uppdated with totalItems in Patch 3.2

After CheckInbox() is called and the inbox populated, this function will report the number of items in the user's inbox.

Ensure that the MAIL_INBOX_UPDATE event has been fired before accessing this function, or it will return 0 numItems.

You access items in the inbox using GetInboxHeaderInfo().

FIXME - Requires that the mailbox window is open?
FIXME - Sample code showing use of the mail when at the mailbox or out in the world.
