Pick up a macro from the macro frame and place it on the cursor

PickupMacro("macroName" or macroID)

Arguments[edit | edit source]

String - the name of the macro.
Number - the position of the macro in the macro frame. Starting at the top left macro with 1, counting from left to right and top to bottom. The IDs of the first page (all characters) range from 1-18, the second page 19-36. Note that this index may change as macros are added or deleted.

Example[edit | edit source]


Result[edit | edit source]

The macro named "Reload" is placed on the cursor. If there is no such named macro then nothing happens.
The macro located on the second page of the macro frame, middle row, far left will be placed on the mouse cursor and can be dropped onto any action button. If this position is empty (no macro in that slot defined), nothing happens.

Note[edit | edit source]

Currently a macroID argument which is greater than 36 returns nothing. There are only 36 macro slots as of 3.0.3.
