GetEntPropEnt Function

Retrieves an entity index from an entity's property.

This function is considered safer and more robust over GetEntDataEnt*, because it performs strict offset checking and typing rules.

int GetEntPropEnt(int entity, PropType type, const char[] prop, int element)


int entity

Entity/edict index.

PropType type

Property type.

const char[] prop

Property name.

int element

Element # (starting from 0) if property is an array.

Return Value

Entity index at the given property. If there is no entity, or the entity is not valid, then -1 is returned.


Invalid entity or offset out of reasonable bounds.
