Function: integer llGetObjectPrimCount( key prim );

Returns an integer that is the total number of prims in the object that contains prim.

• key prim prim UUID that is in the same region

Avatars sitting on the object are not counted[1]. Zero is returned if prim: (A) is not found, (B) is part of an attachment[2], or (C) is not a prim.


  • This cannot be used to detect if an avatar is seated (by checking for a non-zero return), use llGetAgentInfo instead.
  • The prim count for attachments are not returned[2]. If possible use llGetNumberOfPrims instead.

  1. ^ llGetNumberOfPrims on the other hand does count avatars sitting on the object.
  2. ^ Whether the attachment exception is a bug or a feature is unclear.
