Return Value

The form ID of this form.


; Obtains the form id of the main quest
int formID = mainQuest.GetFormID()


  • The value returned by GetFormID is always in decimal. This can be confusing to anyone expecting the return value to be the hex value for a form found in the Creation Kit. You will have to convert the value yourself. This can be easily done with the windows calculator, by selecting "View → Programmer" and selecting "Dec", pasting the value in, and then selecting "hex".


Int myFormID = SomeTree.GetFormID()
768339 = BB953; or 000BB953 in the editor.
