Disables an addon for subsequent sessions.

DisableAddOn(addon [, character])

Arguments[]

addon
number - addonIndex from 1 to GetNumAddOns()
or string - addonName (as in toc/folder filename) of the addon, case insensitive.
character
string? - playerName of the character (without realm)
or boolean? - enableAll True if the addon should be enabled/disabled for all characters on the realm.
Defaults to the current character. This param is currently bugged when attempting to use it (Issue #156).

Details[]

  • Takes effect only after reloading the UI.
  • Attempting to disable secure addons with the GuardedAddOn TOC metadata field will result in an "Cannot disable a guarded AddOn" error.

Example[]

  • Enables the addon at index 1 for the current character.
function PrintAddonInfo(idx)
	local name = GetAddOnInfo(idx)
	local enabledState = GetAddOnEnableState(nil, idx)
	print(name, enabledState)
end

PrintAddonInfo(1) -- "HelloWorld", 0
EnableAddOn(1)
PrintAddonInfo(1) -- "HelloWorld", 2
  • This should enable an addon for all characters, provided it isn't bugged.
EnableAddOn("HelloWorld", true)
  • Blizzard addons can be only accessed by name instead of index.
DisableAddOn("Blizzard_CombatLog")

Patch changes[]

  • Dragonflight Patch 10.1.0 (2023-05-02): Secure addons with the GuardedAddOn TOC metadata field can no longer be disabled.
