Patch
Added in 1.1.0 / 1.13.2

Returns information about the specified channel.

id, name, instanceID, isCommunitiesChannel = GetChannelName(id or "name")

Arguments

id 
number - Channel ID to query, e.g. 1 for the chat channel currently addressable using /1.
name 
string - Name of the channel to query, e.g. "Trade - City".

Returns

id 
number - The ID of the channel, or 0 if the channel is not found.
name 
string - The name of the channel, e.g. "Trade - Stormwind", or nil if the player is not in the queried channel.
instanceID 
number - Index used to deduplicate channels. Usually zero, unless two channels with the same name exist.
isCommunitiesChannel 
boolean - True if this is a Blizzard Communities channel, false if not.

Details

  • Note that querying GetChannelName("Trade - City") may return values which appear to be valid even while the player is not a city. Consider using GetChannelName((GetChannelName("Trade - City"))) > 0 to check whether you really have access to the Trade channel.
