Enables an addon for subsequent sessions.

EnableAddOn (addon [, character])
DisableAddOn(addon [, character])

Arguments

addon 
number - Index from 1 to GetNumAddOns() or string name - (as in toc/folder filename) of the addon, case insensitive.
character 
string? - Name of the character (without realm) or boolean? - 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).

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.
