Int Function GetNumItems() Native

Return Value

Returns the number of items in a container.


  • Check a single container.
Int iNumItems = MQ101AlduinREF.GetNumItems()
  • Set the weights of all ingredients in player's inventory to 0.1.
Actor Property PlayerREF Auto
Event SomeEvent()
	ReweighIngredientsIn(PlayerREF, 0.1)
Function ReweighIngredientsIn(ObjectReference akContainer, Float afWeight) Global
	Int iFormIndex = akContainer.GetNumItems()
	While iFormIndex > 0
		iFormIndex -= 1
		Form kForm = akContainer.GetNthForm(iFormIndex)
		If kForm.GetType() == 30 ; Ingredient


  • The returned value indicates the number of item types in the container regardless of the count of any particular item. If a container has ten gold and a torch, GetNumItems will return '2' and not '11'.

The exception is keys, if you have two of the same key then GetNumItems will count both keys. EDIT: This could be because the keys were quest items. More testing is needed to confirm this.
