How to Randomize TokenMod statsmarkers from API Button?

This works fine from within my API button... !token-mod --set statusmarkers|yellow;8 However, I'm trying to do this... !token-mod --set statusmarkers|yellow;[[1d4+4]] And nothing happens. Is this the correct syntax?

I tested it as a macro in my Macro Mule character in my Vault game, and it works fine: !token-mod {{ --set statusmarkers|yellow;[[1d4+4]] }}

You need to prevent the inline roll from happening before you push the button.  Generally, you do that by HTML escaping part of it: [Push Me](!token-mod --set statusmarkers|yellow; [ [1d4+4]]) When you have problems with Buttons, push up in the chat after trying it to see what it sent to the API.  Without the escape, this is what I was seeing: !token-mod --set statusmarkers|yellow; Rolling 1d4+4 = (1)+4'>5
Escaping the bracket worked. Thanks!
