This function sets the name of an account.

Syntax

bool setAccountName ( account theAccount, string name [, bool allowCaseVariations = false] )

OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Method: account:setName(...)
Counterpart: name

Required Arguments

  • theAccount: The account you wish to change the name.
  • name: The new name.

Optional Arguments

  • allowCaseVariations: Whether the username is case sensitive (if this is set to true, usernames "Bob" and "bob" will refer to different accounts)

Returns

Returns a true if the account name was set, false if an invalid argument was specified.

Example

Change the name of an account.

addCommandHandler("changeaccountname", function(player, _, oldname, newname)
    if not oldname or not newname then
        return
    end
    local account = getAccountByName(oldname)
    if not account then
        return 
    end
    setAccountName(account, newname)
end)
