WoW API < SecureCmdOptionParse

Arguments[edit | edit source]

macroText 
a string containing the macro conditions to be parsed.

Returns[edit | edit source]

result 
The chosen clause text, or no return (nil) if none of the clauses apply.
target 
The [target=(unit)] argument of the chosen clause, if such an argument exist.

Example[edit | edit source]

print(SecureCmdOptionParse("[mod:alt] Alt is down; Alt is not down")); -- Prints appropriate text
print(SecureCmdOptionParse("[target=pet] Cast at Pet")); -- Prints 'Cast at Pet', 'pet'
print(SecureCmdOptionParse("[nomod,mod] Alt is not down")); -- Prints nothing (nomod and mod cannot both be true)

Details[edit | edit source]

This command can be used to implement the same conditional processing that Blizzard's macro system uses. It is the same API they use and so supports all the same conditionals.

Note that item links can not be part of the commands because they contain square brackets [], which get interpreted by the parser as modifiers.
