Returns

The highest set PVar ID.

Examples

// Store the upper index in the variable 'PVarUpperIndex' + 1
new PVarUpperIndex = GetPVarsUpperIndex(playerid) + 1;

// This pVarCount variable will store how many pVars a player has set as we count them.
new pVarCount;

for(new i=0; i != PVarUpperIndex; i++) // Loop through all pVar IDs under the upper index
{
    // At first, we need to get PVar name
    new pVarName[128];
    GetPVarNameAtIndex(playerid, i, pVarName, sizeof(pVarName));
    // If the var is set (type not 0), increment pVarCount.
    if(GetPVarType(playerid, pVarName) != 0) pVarCount++;
}

new szString[66];
format(szString, sizeof(szString), "You have %i player-variables set. Upper index (highest ID): %i.", pVarCount, PVarUpperIndex-1);
SendClientMessage(playerid, -1, szString);
