WoW API < GetStatistic

Return the value of the requested Statistic.

value = GetStatistic(achievementID)

Arguments[]

  • achievementID (number) - The ID of the Achievement

Returns[]

  • value (string) - The value of the requested Statistic.

Details[]

Using the achievementID's of actual Achievements, as opposed to statistics, generates strange results. More testing is needed.

Example[]

Here is a function that will take any statistic category (like Battlegrounds) and any statistic title in that category (like Battlegrounds played) and will return the statistic ID for that statistic, so it can be used in other functions.

function GetStatisticId(CategoryTitle, StatisticTitle)
	local str = ""
	for _, CategoryId in pairs(GetStatisticsCategoryList()) do
		local Title, ParentCategoryId, Something
		Title, ParentCategoryId, Something = GetCategoryInfo(CategoryId)
		
		if Title == CategoryTitle then
			local i
			local statisticCount = GetCategoryNumAchievements(CategoryId)
			for i = 1, statisticCount do
				local IDNumber, Name, Points, Completed, Month, Day, Year, Description, Flags, Image, RewardText
				IDNumber, Name, Points, Completed, Month, Day, Year, Description, Flags, Image, RewardText = GetAchievementInfo(CategoryId, i)
				if Name == StatisticTitle then
					return IDNumber
				end
			end
		end
	end
	return -1
end
