Patch
Added in 1.7.0 / 1.13.2

Get information about an AddOn.

name, title, notes, loadable, reason, security, newVersion = GetAddOnInfo(index or name)

Arguments

index 
index - The index from 1 to GetNumAddOns(). Note that you cannot query Blizzard addons by index.
name 
string - The name of the addon (as in toc/folder filename), case insensitive.

Returns

name 
string - The name of the AddOn (the folder name).
title 
string - The title of the AddOn as listed in the .toc file (presumably this is the appropriate localized one).
notes 
string - The notes about the AddOn from its .toc file (presumably this is the appropriate localized one).
loadable 
boolean - Indicates if the AddOn is loaded or eligible to be loaded, true if it is, false if it is not.
reason 
string - The reason why the AddOn cannot be loaded. This is nil if the addon is loadable, otherwise it contains a string token indicating the reason that can be localized by prepending "ADDON_". ("BANNED", "CORRUPT", "DEMAND_LOADED", "DISABLED", "INCOMPATIBLE", "INTERFACE_VERSION", "MISSING")
security 
string - Indicates the security status of the AddOn. This is currently "INSECURE" for all user provided addons and "SECURE" for Blizzard_* AddOns.
newVersion 
boolean - Not currently used.

Details

  • If the function is passed a string, name will always be the value passed, so check if reason equals "MISSING" to find out if an addon exists.
  • If the function is passed a number that is out of range, you will get an error message, specifically [<file name>]:<line number> AddOn index must be in the range of 1 to <GetNumAddOns()>

Patch changes

  • Warlords of Draenor Patch 6.0.2 (2014-10-14): Removed 'enabled' return. 'loadable' return was changed from a flag to a boolean. Added 'newVersion' return. The enabled state of an addon can now be queried with GetAddOnEnableState.
