View list of data type meanings


Gets the current value of a timer option for the specified plugin.

You must specify a plugin ID, the name of an existing timer, and a timer option from the list given under the description for GetTimerOption. These are the same names as used in the XML world files for timer options.

If you want to find the value of an timer option in the current plugin, use "GetTimerOption".

If you are writing a plugin and want to find "global" MUSHclient timer values, use an empty plugin ID, eg.

world.Note world.GetPluginTimerOption ("", "my_timer", "enabled")

If the option name is not known, or is not allowed to be retrieved, a NULL variant is returned.

If the named timer does not exist, EMPTY is returned. If the name given is invalid, NULL is returned. If the option name is not known, EMPTY is returned. (Use "IsEmpty" and "IsNull" to test for these possibilities).

See GetTimerOption for a list of option names and values.

Note: Available in version 4.21 onwards.
