Get the string value of a server variable.

(const varname[], buffer[], len)
const varname[]The name of the string variable to get the value of.
buffer[]An array into which to store the value, passed by reference.
lenThe length of the string that should be stored.

Return Values:

The length of the returned string. 0 if the specified server variable is not a string or doesn't exist.



Using this function on anything other than a string (int, bool or float) or a nonexistent server variable, will crash your server! This is a bug.

Example Usage:

public OnGameModeInit()
    new hostname[64];
    GetServerVarAsString("hostname", hostname, sizeof(hostname));
    printf("Hostname: %s", hostname);


Type 'varlist' in the server console to display a list of available server variables and their types.



When filterscripts or plugins is specified as the varname, this function only returns the name of the first specified filterscript or plugin. This is a bug.
