Function: string llGetUsername( key id );

Returns a string that is the unique username of the avatar specified by id.

• key id avatar UUID that is in the same region

id must specify a valid avatar key, present in or otherwise known to the sim in which the script is running, otherwise an empty string is returned. This function will still return a valid username if the avatar is a child agent of the sim (i.e., in an adjacent sim, but presently able to see into the one the script is in), or for a short period after the avatar leaves the sim (specifically, when the client completely disconnects from the sim, either as a main or child agent).


  • To get around the "avatar must be present" limitation, you can use the llRequestUsername function and the dataserver event to obtain the avatar's username from a key.
  • There is no opposite function (llUsername2Key) available.
