Function: key llList2Key( list src, integer index );

Returns a key that is at index in src.

• list src List containing the element of interest.
• integer index Index of the element of interest.

index supports negative indexes.
If index describes a location not in src then null string is returned.
If the type of the element at index in src is not a key it is typecast to a key. If it cannot be typecast null string is returned.

KBcaution.png Important: Please read this intro of how to iterate over a list in LSL.


Index Positive Negative
First 0 -length
Last length - 1 -1


  • Positive indexes count from the beginning, the first item being indexed as 0, the last as (length - 1).
  • Negative indexes count from the far end, the first item being indexed as -length, the last as -1.


  • If index is out of bounds the script continues to execute without an error message.
