WoW API: GetRaidTargetIndex
Get which raid targetting icon is being shown over a mob or raid member.
In patch 1.11, Blizzard added the ability for a raid/party leader or assistant leader to assign up to 8 different target icons to mobs or players. These icons are visible only to other players within the raid or party.
- String - The UnitId to examine.
- Number - a value from 1 to 8, or nil, as follows:
- nil = no icon
- 1 = Yellow 4-point Star
- 2 = Orange Circle
- 3 = Purple Diamond
- 4 = Green Triangle
- 5 = White Crescent Moon
- 6 = Blue Square
- 7 = Red "X" Cross
- 8 = White Skull
- Note that (at least during 1.11), GetRaidTargetIndex() will return seemingly-random indexes for units that do not exist. Always test for UnitExists() before doing GetRaidTargetIndex().
- Explicit case: "raid2target" when "raid2" is offline and not targetting anything at all misbehaves.
