NOTE: Because LsL does not reset a script when it is transferred to a new owner, a script can retain old owner identity and even act upon the old owner unless the script is reset. While this appears up front to be a problem with llGetOwner(), this is not the case. The script must be reset upon owner change, which is most easily accomplished using the CHANGE event, as demonstrated below. Without such a reset event, significant problems can be experienced especially in the use of animations and other functions which act upon the owner of the device.

Summary

Function: key llGetOwner( );

Returns a key that is the current owner of the script

NOTE: Because LsL does not reset a script when it is transferred to a new owner, a script can retain old owner identity and even act upon the old owner unless the script is reset. While this appears up front to be a problem with llGetOwner(), this is not the case. The script must be reset upon owner change, which is most easily accomplished using the CHANGE event, as demonstrated below. Without such a reset event, significant problems can be experienced especially in the use of animations and other functions which act upon the owner of the device.

Examples

<lsl>default {

   state_entry()
   {
       llInstantMessage(llGetOwner(),"Only you can hear me. Isn't that eerie.");
   }
changed(integer change){if (change & CHANGED_OWNER){llResetScript();
