WoW API < GetItemFamily

Gets the bitfield of what types of bags an item can go into or contain.

bagType = GetItemFamily(itemId or "itemName" or "itemLink")


(itemId or "itemName" or "itemLink")
Integer - The numeric ID of the item. ie. 12345
String - The Name of the Item, ex: "Hearthstone"
String - The itemLink, when Shift-Clicking items.


Bitfield - What type of bags an item can go into or if the item is a container what it can contain


local a = GetItemFamily(22786)


a = 32


New function for 2.4 that allows you to find out what items can go into what bags. If the item you pass is a container itself it will return what items it can contain since containers can always only go in general purpose bags. This function only returns info for the items in the item cache just like GetItemInfo. If the item is not in the item cache the function will return nil.
The best way of testing if an item is a bag (or quiver) is to GetItemInfo() it and check if the 9th return value is "INVTYPE_BAG". All other tests require localization.
