Question BNGetFriendInfo issue

Code:
-- get number of online friends
local _,num=BNGetNumFriends()

-- cycle through friends to find "Bob"
for i=1,num do
    local id,name=BNGetFriendInfo(i)
    if (name=="Bob") then
        BNSendWhisper(id, "Hi Bob!")
    else
        print("Bob is not online.")
    end
end
Even if Bob is online, it never sends him the message and goes to "Bob is not online." Any ideas?

If you save the name to a saved variable you'll find it's for all intents and purposes, junk. You should use the BattleTagId.

Swapped to compare this instead and works as intended. Thanks!
