LUA function for getting item enchants

Is there a way in the API to check the enchants on an item that I currently have equipped? I've been unable to find one so far...

To check for an enchant, you need to parse the itemstring.

You can get an itemlink for a slot in your inventory with GetInventoryItemLink:
lua Code:
  1. local slotId = GetInventorySlotInfo("ChestSlot")
  2. local link = GetInventoryItemLink("player", slotId)
  3. local itemId, enchantId, gem1, gem2, gem3, gem4 = link:match("item:(%d+):(%d+):(%d+):(%d+):(%d+):(%d+)")
Tekkub's Bimbo is an excellent example of how you can detect enchants/gems.

Ooh, I didn't know you could get that sort of info out of an item link... thanks

[edit]
I can't find anything about what these enchant/ gem numbers mean though, including in Bimbo... they aren't spell IDs nor item IDs.

Well, there's this page: http://www.wowpedia.org/EnchantId

It doesn't look very updated. Not sure what the best practice is for dealing with enchantIds.

Forgive the Necro but this thread shows up in searches and I don't want people to get the wring idea: The above discussion does NOT apply to the buffs Shaman put on their weapon.

Aside from parsing Tooltips and/or monitoring logs to see when Windfury etc were applied, there is no way of knowing the enchant put on a Shaman's weapon.

In the case of Shaman's, you will get a 0 (zero) in the colon separated string list.

Well, if this thread has already been resurrected...
I eventually solved the problem by creating an item link for a stat-less item with the given enchant ID and parsing its tooltip, and would like to thank the author of this add-on for the idea (and most of the implementation).

As for shamans, I used GetWeaponEnchantInfo to see if a weapon enchant exists, but this indeed does not tell me what the enchant is.

What about this: http://wowprogramming.com/docs/api/GetWeaponEnchantInfo ?

If anyone is trying to do this, feel free to copy the code from PhanxBuffs; it detects all temp enchants currently in the game, and maps them to the spell that applies them.

I think the best method is if you really want to find all enchants for weapons is that you scan the mainhand/offhand weapons tooltip with the enchant id's localized name.

Since 6.0 you can get the temporary enchant ids from GetWeaponEnchantInfo():

Lua Code:
  1. local hasMainHandEnchant, mainHandExpiration, mainHandCharges, mainHandEnchantID, hasOffHandEnchant, offHandExpiration, offHandCharges, offHandEnchantId = GetWeaponEnchantInfo()

The issue now, is that you don't know the duration of the enchants.

But you can filter the fishing lure enchants or fall back to 3600 like this:

Lua Code:
  1. local tempEnchantID = {
  2.     [256] = 600, -- (+75)
  3.     [263] = 600, -- (+25)
  4.     [264] = 600, -- (+50)
  5.     [265] = 600, -- (+75)
  6.     [266] = 600, -- (+100)
  7.     [3868] = 3600, -- (+100)
  8.     [4225] = 900, -- (+150)
  9.     [4264] = 600, -- (+15)
  10.     [4919] = 600, -- (+150)
  11.     [5386] = 600, -- (+200)
  12. }
  13.  
  14. local hasMainHandEnchant, mainHandExpiration, mainHandCharges, mainHandEnchantID, hasOffHandEnchant, offHandExpiration, offHandCharges, offHandEnchantId = GetWeaponEnchantInfo()
  15. local duration = tempEnchantID[mainHandEnchantID] or 3600
  16. frame.cooldown:SetCooldown(GetTime() + ((mainHandExpiration / 1000) - duration), duration)
