Returns the binary number stored at the specified address+offset.

Number := NumGet(VarOrAddress [, Offset = 0][, Type = "UPtr"])



A memory address or variable. If VarOrAddress is a variable such as MyVar, the address of the variable's string buffer is used. This is usually equivalent to passing &MyVar, but omitting the "&" performs better and ensures that the target address + offset is valid.

Do not pass a variable reference if the variable contains the target address; in that case, pass an expression such as MyVar+0.


An offset - in bytes - which is added to VarOrAddress to determine the target address.


One of the following strings (defaults to UPtr if omitted):
UInt, Int, Int64, Short, UShort, Char, UChar, Double, Float, Ptr or UPtr

Unlike DllCall, these must be enclosed in quotes when used as literal strings.

For details see DllCall Types.

Return Value

If the target address is invalid, an empty string is returned. However, some invalid addresses cannot be detected as such and may cause unpredictable behaviour.

Otherwise, the number at the specified address+offset is returned.

General Remarks

If only two parameters are present, the second parameter can be either Offset or Type. For example, NumGet(var, "int") is valid.
