Deletes a group of aliases
View list of data type meanings
long DeleteAliasGroup(BSTR GroupName);
Triggers, aliases and timers can be placed in "groups" where a group is a bunch of related items. Groups have names, there is no restriction on the name of a group. Ungrouped items have blank (empty) names.
To delete an entire group of aliases do this:
For debugging purposes the function returns a count of the number of members deleted. eg.
mycount = world.DeleteAliasGroup ("groupname")
If you are using plugins only the members of the current plugin (if any) are deleted. If the call is made outside a plugin only the members of the group that are not in a plugin are deleted.
WARNING - if the alias is executing a script it cannot be deleted. For example, an alias cannot delete itself.
If you need to delete an alias from within itself use DoAfterSpecial to delete it after a short delay. You might also want to use EnableAliasGroup to disable it first.
Since DeleteAliasGroup deletes multiple aliases, any found to be "in use" (that is, executing a script) will not be deleted.
Available in MUSHclient version 3.29 onwards.
A count of the number of items deleted.
