Function: list llGetObjectDetails( key id, list params );

Returns a list of the details for id, specifically those requested in params.

• key id group, avatar or prim UUID that is in the same region or adjacent regions*
• list params OBJECT_* flags

An empty list if id is not found. OBJECT_UNKNOWN_DETAIL is returned when passed an invalid integer parameter.


Avatar detection range for SL Server 1.34
id Parameter

id holds the UUID of the avatar or prim this function is going to get the details of.

If id is not found in the region, adjacent regions are searched for avatars which match id. An avatar is only considered to have been found if it is inside the region, or within a 34 meter zone outside the region boundaries (see diagram). A single valid result may be returned after the avatar leaves this zone.

params Parameter

The params list is used to indicate the object attributes of interest. The order they are supplied in determines the order of the corresponding return values in the return list.

  • If params contains unsupported integer values, OBJECT_UNKNOWN_DETAIL is placed in the output list.
  • If params contains non-integer types, those values will be silently ignored.

  • OBJECT_ROT will return an accurate facing for Avatars seated or in mouselook, but only a rough direction otherwise.
  • Adjacent regions are not searched for prims which match id.
  • Information for avatars that can no longer be found will still be available for a short period (about 45 seconds) but it is not updated.
  • Items in params that are not integers are silently ignored, OBJECT_UNKNOWN_DETAIL is not returned.
  • This function does not return information about items in inventory.
  • llTargetOmega will only effect the return of OBJECT_ROT if the object is physical. If the object is not physical then the original start rotation is returned, llTargetOmega is a client side effect.
  • OBJECT_SCRIPT_MEMORY reports the maximum memory that all scripts in an object could use, not the actual amount of real memory currently used. In particular, Mono scripts only report the default 64K or what they chose with llSetMemoryLimit, not the current dynamic allocation that is only accessible from within the script. For LSO scripts, the 16K is real usage in all cases. In practice, this makes the number reported a worst case scenario.
  • OBJECT_RUNNING_SCRIPT_COUNT includes crashed scripts in its count.
  • OBJECT_REZZER_KEY will return NULL_KEY for objects rezzed prior to server version
  • Objects copied in-world between server versions & return the object's creator key for rezzer key.
  • When targeting an agent with OBJECT_REZZER_KEY while they are sitting on an object, the rezzer key of the object's root prim is returned.

Useful Snippets

See Link/Get for some link related helper functions. Also see llGetLinkPrimitiveParams if you need to get the position and rotation of a linked prim.

integer isLindenTreeOrGrass(key id){
    //Check if it's an OPT_OTHER and not an attachment, which makes it a Linden tree or grass!
    list out = llGetObjectDetails(id, [OBJECT_PATHFINDING_TYPE, OBJECT_ATTACHED_POINT]);
    return (llList2Integer(out, 0) == OPT_OTHER) && !llList2Integer(out, 1);
