  local reagentName, reagentTexture, reagentCount, playerReagentCount = GetTradeSkillReagentInfo(id, i);
  totalReagents = totalReagents   reagentCount;
end;

If a recipe calls for 2 copper tubes, 1 malachite and 2 blasting powders, GetTradeSkillNumReagents would return 3. If it required 5 linen cloths, the result would be 1.

Once you know how many distinct reagents you need, you can use GetTradeSkillReagentInfo to find out how many of each one are required.
