All Commands All Reference


This command is probably one of the most used and versatile in the language.

It is essentially used to retrieve data from an object but it can do a lot more.

It's most common use might be something like {OBJ_DATA(0, C1)} which is requesting Character Data 1 (the object title) from the current object. {OBJ_DATA(0, C2)} would therefore be requesting Character Data 2 from the current object. See this help page for the other part numbers you can use in this command.

You can also retrieve XML values. So for the tag "first_name", you would use the code {OBJ_DATA(0, first_name)}. You can aslo retreive multiple XML values at the same time using {OBJ_DATA(0, first_name last_name)}.
