GetActorReference - ReferenceAlias

From Creation Kit
Jump to: navigation, search

Member of: ReferenceAlias Script

Attempts to retrieve the actor this alias is pointing at. If it has not been resolved to a reference, or the reference is not an Actor, it will return None.

Syntax

Actor Function GetActorReference()
	return GetReference() as Actor
endFunction
Actor Function GetActorRef()
	return GetActorReference()
endFunction

Parameters

None

Return Value

The Actor this alias is pointing at, or None if the alias has not been resolved or is not an Actor.

Examples

; Obtain the actor this alias points at
Actor theActor = MyAlias.GetActorReference()

Notes

  • Under the hood, this is 'GetReference() As Actor' which is measurably faster.
