Returns the script name and line number where the region was created.

location = Region:GetSourceLocation()

Returns

location 
string - The script name and line number where the region was created.

Details

  • The returned string will be the script name and line number delimited with a colon, eg. path\to\script.lua:10.
  • For accurate script names the enableSourceLocationLookup console variable must be set to 1, otherwise the script name will always be "UnknownFile".
  • For dynamically loaded scripts the script name portion will correspond to the chunkname argument supplied to loadstring. If not supplied, this will typically expand to a leading portion of the script body.
  • Texture and fontstring regions created through script APIs at-present report the source location of their initial parent frame, whereas those created statically in XML will be correct.
