Fetch can tell you the current height, width, left, and top of a token. (Note: requires Fetch v2.0) @(selected.height) @(selected.width) @(selected.top) @(selected.left) It can even tell you the snapping increment of the page the token is on, so you could know the position of the gridlines: @(page.@(selected.pageid).snapping_increment) ZeroFrame can defer an inline roll to do modulo math using the info returned by Fetch, or MathOps could do it without deferring. MathOps version for top: {& math @(selected.top) % (@(page.@(selected.pageid).snapping_increment)*70)} ...and for left: {& math @(selected.left) % (@(page.@(selected.pageid).snapping_increment)*70)} Of course, that is to the center of the token, so if you want to align the upper left corner to the grid, you have to adjust your starting figure to account for half of the height/width. The actual upper left corner is found as: TOP : {&math @(selected.top)-(@(selected.height)/2)} LEFT: {&math @(selected.left)-(@(selected.width)/2)} Which would make the modulo operation for the upper left corner: TOP : {& math (@(selected.top)-(@(selected.height)/2)) % (@(page.@(selected.pageid).snapping_increment)*70)} LEFT:  {& math ( @(selected.left)-(@(selected.width)/2) ) % (@(page.@(selected.pageid).snapping_increment)*70)} Those numbers would tell you how far the upper left corner was displaced from aligning to the grid... so you could use them right in a TokenMod command line to move the token that far. Those numbers are "right" and "down" measurements of displacement, so to use those numbers for grid alignment, you would need to change the sign so that the token would always be moving the token up and to the left. If you would rather move it down and to the right to get it to align, you'd have to subtract those displacement numbers from the grid size of the page. To explain... imagine the token has a top displacement of 23. That means it is 23 pixels below aligning to the grid, or (putting it another way) the grid line is 23 pixels above the upper left corner. You could therefore move the token 23 pixels up to align it, or your could move it the remainder of the grid square down to align it to the next grid line. The height/width of a grid square is the portion of the equation where you see the snapping increment multiplied by 70 (the default 100% resolution): (@(page.@(selected.pageid).snapping_increment)*70) TL;DR So, working from the upper left corner, the final equation for "how far to move the token down" is: {& math  (@(page.@(selected.pageid).snapping_increment)*70)-( (@(selected.top)-(@(selected.height)/2)) % (@(page.@(selected.pageid).snapping_increment)*70))} ...and the final equation for "how far to move the token to the right" is: {& math  (@(page.@(selected.pageid).snapping_increment)*70)-( (@(selected.left)-(@(selected.width)/2)) % (@(page.@(selected.pageid).snapping_increment)*70))} REQUIRED SCRIPTS: Fetch, MathOps, TokenMod, and ZeroFrame (if you don't install MathOps after Fetch)

The Aaron said: There isn't, but how would you see that operating? Is there a way to get the current location or size of the token?  Assuming the token was aligned before modifying its size, if the prior size were known it would be a reasonable calculation.  I am doing this from a known starting point.  But once the token has been modified a few times, the macro no longer knows how to move the token. Currently I am modifying the size based on a selection, and it is an absolute value (i.e. not 2x or /2).  So I can't base the calculation on a scaling.

This maybe because im an idiot, but i Know one of things folks were trying to do was use TARGET instead of SELECTED in the script. So i made a mistake while making a token action and did this&nbsp; [STATUS](!token-mod {{ &nbsp; &nbsp; --set statusmarkers|+Charm &nbsp; &nbsp; --ids @selected|token_id }}) instead of this [STATUS](!token-mod {{ &nbsp; &nbsp; --set statusmarkers|+Charm &nbsp; &nbsp; --ids @(selected|token_id} }}) These are buttons that show in chat and normally using the&nbsp;&nbsp; --ids @(selected|token_id} I would need to go in a remove the charm status on my caster. But with this&nbsp; --ids @selected|token_id&nbsp; I dont need to remove it, it targets only the creature. It works like a target.&nbsp; This may already be known but i couldnt find anything about targeting except it creates and issue !Spawn script and this little error fixes this for me. Here is the script i created for the spell i am using and it works fine&nbsp; &amp;{template:npcaction} {{rname=**Level 1: Charm Person** [Charm-Person](<a href="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.d20.io/images/310725874/joL7JYmwMuikr8fxWSGlkw/original.png" rel="nofollow">https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.d20.io/images/310725874/joL7JYmwMuikr8fxWSGlkw/original.png</a>) "By my deeds I mean no harm, with these words I hope to charm...

Hmm... you might need to do more testing to be sure, because this: --ids @(selected|token_id} isn't a Roll20 construction, nor is it a Fetch construction. In fact, it's sort of halfway between (opening paren, closing right brace), which might be why it wasn't working, before. And @selected|token_id doesn't get parsed by Roll20, so it's likely triggering something in TokenMod, but Aaron would have to weigh in on that.

There's probably enough there for it's own script. What I proposed with the metatoolbox would work for square grids, and there was enough info there to extrapolate the directional movement (negating the vertical displacement to move it "north" could handle both "nw" and "ne", depending on how you handled the horizontal displacement), but it was a lot of extra verbiage, for sure. Some sort of alignment script could offer handles for what corner of the token to align in what direction, and could take the grid style into account.

All kidding aside though, I honestly don't see the need to do it.&nbsp; a simple tap of the token and it aligns to the grid you choose after resizing.
I dont know why it works but as a button in a spell they do work properly with no errors showing up&nbsp;

--ids @(selected|token_id} was atypo --ids @{selected|token_id} is what it should have been

The reason it has been working is because TokenMod always operates on all selected tokens unless you specify --ignore-selected or have a @{target|...} as part of the command.&nbsp;
1668478682
I can't understand why I can't parse a token ID directly anymore: !token-mod {{ --ids @{Strahd von Zarovich|token_id} --ignore-selected --set bar3_value|@{Strahd von Zarovich|speed} }} gets me this: No attribute was found for @{Strahd von Zarovich|token_id}

Use character_id Characters don't have a token_id because there is a one to many relationship between characters and the tokens that represent them, the system wouldn't know which id to use. TokenMod will take a character_id and find all graphics representing that character to apply the command to. You may also want to supply --current-page or --active-pages to only target graphics on your current page or pages with players on them respectively.&nbsp;

And, since I wanted this to be a global-effecting macro, its actually OK to apply to all tokens throughout module.&nbsp; It's precisely what I want to happen.

Ah, good point.&nbsp; It is there under the two page restrictions: --current-page &nbsp;-- Only modifies tokens on the calling player's current page. This is particularly useful when passing character_ids to&nbsp; --ids . --active-pages &nbsp;-- Only modifies tokens on pages where there is a player or the GM. This is particularly useful when passing character_ids to&nbsp; --ids . But it's missing under the --ids option and the Token Specification section.

Yeah, not that you didn't do a good job thoroughly explaining to folks about everything the API does, but the "Affected Tokens" section could all be brought together in it's own very clear section. On that note, the UDL/ LDL sections, since Roll20 has deprecated LDL, could probably be separated now for distinction, making LDL a footnote for those still using it, after UDL is described in detail. I wonder how long LDL is actually going to remain in Roll20?&nbsp; At that time, all the LDL functionality could be trimmed out of TokenMod to speed it up. Gotta admit Aaron, been in Foundry lately and kinda miss your presence there.&nbsp; lol.

So weird behavior, and I thought I had an understanding of how things work, but apparently ... I don't I thought that bar1, bar1_value, or the like would also Link the corresponding attribute to the bar.&nbsp; But, it seems to only be concerned with values? &lt;- All attributes are "None" after setting. I wondered if we could get a combination Boolean/ Attribute Declaration in the bars: --set&nbsp; bar1_link|true|hp bar2_link|false|speed bar3_link|false|fly_speed

From the TokenMod help handout: Attribute Name These are resolved from the represented character id. If the token doesn't represent a character, these will be ignored.

I have, what I beleive, is a very simple macro. Using your Help documentation I was able to create the emacro they way I want except for one thing: I cannot leave out a value for the Token Marker. Sometimes I want a nuberic value from 1 to 9, other timea I want no value at all - such as just the default Token Marker image selected. !token-mod --set statusmarkers|!?{Marker|Burning,Burning|Dead,dead|Bleeding,red|Dying,half-heart|Frightened,blue|Helpless,interdiction|Nauseated,pink|On Fire,half-haze|Sleep,sleepy|Slowed,snail|Staggard,brown|Summoned,yellow}:?{Numeric 1-9| } Note: Token Markers Burning and Flying are custom Token Markers. Also if the Token Mark already exist, with a value or not, I am using the ! so it will remove the Token Marker if I select it again. However, to remove an existing Token Marker with a value requiers you to enter that value again. I woudl like it just to remove the Token Marker without having to eneter that value again - if possible. So is this possible? Thanks.

Hmmm ... couple of things ... first off, Burning and Flying should be directly contrived if they are Custom Markers; example Burning:0023489 &nbsp; You can get the exact reference from !token-mod --help ; all of your game's standard and custom markers ids will be gathered there Secondly, I would just list all possible values, including the 0 value, for clears !token-mod {{ --set statusmarkers|!?{Marker|Burning,Burning: 0023489 |Dead,dead|Bleeding,red|Dying,half-heart |Flying,Flying:0086794 |Frightened,blue|Helpless,interdiction|Nauseated,pink|On Fire,half-haze|Sleep,sleepy|Slowed,snail|Staggard,brown|Summoned,yellow}:?{Numeric 0-9|0|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9} }} There's some more complicated things you 'can do', but it all depends on how you are using the macros.&nbsp; I wouldn't recommend this to most people though, it can get complicated: ?{Are you Adding a marker?|Yes,!|No,!.}token-mod {{ --on statusmarkers|?{Marker|Burning, Burning:0023489 |Dead,dead|Bleeding,red|Dying,half-heart |Flying,Flying:0086794 |Frightened,blue|Helpless,interdiction|Nauseated,pink|On Fire,half-haze|Sleep,sleepy|Slowed,snail|Staggard,brown|Summoned,yellow}:?{Numeric 0-9|0|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9} }} ?{Are you Removing a marker?|Yes,!|No,!.}token-mod {{ --off statusmarkers|?{Marker|Burning, Burning:0023489 |Dead,dead|Bleeding,red|Dying,half-heart |Flying,Flying:0086794 |Frightened,blue|Helpless,interdiction|Nauseated,pink|On Fire,half-haze|Sleep,sleepy|Slowed,snail|Staggard,brown|Summoned,yellow}:0 }} I've had the above type of macro work with mixed results.&nbsp; It never works with reference calls (%/%.) or attributes (@/@.), and sometimes (!/!.) doesn't work in sheets' styled portions (works from the attributes and abilities tab or global macros).&nbsp; The main thing you have to remember is that ! has to be in the unstylized chat (roll macros) and has to be on the first line. ! will call something into being (almost exclusively, as I understand it - API calls) !. will ignore all text up to a carriage return or %NEWLINE% call

I'm trying to create a script to be used as a token action to automate switching vison between two tokens. In D&amp;D 5E, a spellcaster can have a creature that acts as their&nbsp; familiar , and has the ability to see through the familiar's eyes but while doing so are themselves blinded. I've created a token for the familiar and given control of it to the spellcaster's player and created a couple of token actions using TokenMod scripts to turn it's vision on and off. What I'd like is for the spellcaster's token vison to be turned off when the familiar's vision is turned on, and vice-versa for when it is turned off. IOW, I want to combine these two macros into one for allowing vision through the familiar's eyes: !token-mod {{ &nbsp; --set &nbsp; &nbsp; bright_vision|on &nbsp; &nbsp; night_vision|on &nbsp; &nbsp; night_vision_distance|120 &nbsp; &nbsp; night_vision_effect|nocturnal &nbsp; &nbsp; has_directional_bright_light|off &nbsp; &nbsp; directional_bright_light_center|360 &nbsp; &nbsp; directional_bright_light_total|0 &nbsp; &nbsp; light_color|transparent }} !token-mod {{ &nbsp; --set &nbsp; &nbsp; bright_vision|off &nbsp; &nbsp; night_vision|off --ids @{Schlitz|character_id} }} And then combine these two for restoring vision to the spellcaster token: !token-mod {{ --set bright_vision|off night_vision|off }} !token-mod {{ --set bright_vision|on night_vision|on night_vision_distance|60 night_vision_effect|nocturnal has_directional_bright_light|off directional_bright_light_center|360 directional_bright_light_total|0 light_color|transparent --ids @{Schlitz|character_id} }}

I tried the 0.8.74 script and when dropping wildshape, it does change the bar 1 and 2 links properly but not bar 3. The speed from the last wildshape still sticks. With 0.8.75 version and when dropping wildshape, it changes the token side and size ok, but somewhere along the line it altered the hp, ac and speed of the original character sheet to that of the wildshape.

A creature takes 1d10 piercing damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.** /w gm **Hit EFFECT on target creature.** /w gm [EFFECT](~selected|Hail-of-Thorns-Effect) !token-mod --ids @{selected|token_id} --set statusmarkers|+HailofThorns|+Concentration&nbsp; !act -1 10 --Hail of Thorns&nbsp; The ability from [EFFECT] would fire on the foe&nbsp; when the foe is chosen and the EFFECT button hit.

Hi all, This has properly been asked a few times before, but can tokenmod set the play/pause and loop effects on an animated token? Thanks again for a great mod

Hi GM! Unfortunately, Mod Scripts cannot currently affect animation settings: start, stop or looping.

Hi!&nbsp; I am wondering why token mod in my games has problem with getting bar value negative? !token-mod --set bar2_value|[[[[@{selected|bar2}]]- [[6]]]] When the result in above is positive all goes fine but when the result should be negative the bar changes in a weird result. Screenshot #1 below Engelhart has 5 HP token mod&nbsp;subtracts 6 from 5 result should be -1 but it's +4. Screenshot #2 token mod&nbsp;subtracts 6 from 4 result should be -2 but it's +2.

It thinks you want a relative change. Try proceeding it with an = to set.&nbsp; Specifically, this: !token-mod --set bar2_value|[[[[@{selected|bar2}]]- [[6]]]] is resolving to: !token-mod --set bar2_value|-4 Which says "reduce bar2 by 4", which is how you end up with 6-4 = 2 You could just write: !token-mod --set bar2_value|-[[6]] and it will deduct 6 from bar2.&nbsp; It doesn't need to be in an inline roll either.&nbsp; You can even append a !: !token-mod --set bar2_value|-6! and it will bound the value between 0 and bar2_max. If you want to set it to a calculated value that might be negative, you can precede it with =: !token-mod --set bar2_value|=[[[[@{selected|bar2}]]- [[6]]]] which might resolve to: !token-mod --set bar2_value|=-4 explicitly setting it to the value -4.
1675355027
Thank you Aaron! The "=" is the key :) !token-mod --set bar2_value|=[[[[@{selected|bar2}]]- [[6]]]]

Good to hear! I might suggest using: !token-mod --set bar2_value|-[[6]]! in general, as it will support multiple tokens at the same time (so, fireball damage, for example).&nbsp; The way you have it will give unexpected results if you have more than one token selected (@{selected|...} will get evaluated for the "first" selected token before the command is sent to the Mod Script for processing).
Question :&nbsp; Can token mod hadle the opacity of the auras ? Like !token-mod --set aura1_color|#ff00050

Lionel V. said: Question :&nbsp; Can token mod hadle the opacity of the auras ? Like !token-mod --set aura1_color|#ff00050 Doesn't look like it. I'm shocked! BTW, You do not need the "#". And you would need one more character, transparency on #rgb is 2 characters.

I don't think you can adjust opacity on auras. If you can, I can certainly add that.&nbsp;
