API SetBindingMacro

From Wowpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Sets a binding to click the specified button object.

ok = SetBindingMacro("key", "macroName" or macroId);


("key", "macroName") or ("key", macroId)

String - Any binding string accepted by World of Warcraft. For example: "ALT-CTRL-F", "SHIFT-T", "W", "BUTTON4".
String - Name of the macro you wish to execute.
Number - Index of the macro you wish to execute.


Flag - 1 if the binding has been changed successfully, nil otherwise.


  • This function is functionally equivalent to the following statement.
ok = SetBinding("key", "MACRO " .. macroName);
  • A single binding can only be bound to a single command at a time, although multiple bindings may be bound to the same command. The Key Bindings UI will only show the first two bindings, but there is no limit to the number of keys that can be used for the same command.
  • You must use SetBinding to unbind a key.
