EOS API reference page for EOS_EpicAccountId_ToString


Retrieve a null-terminated stringified Epic Online Services Account ID from an EOS_EpicAccountId. This is useful for replication of Epic Online Services Account IDs in multiplayer games. This string will be no larger than EOS_EPICACCOUNTID_MAX_LENGTH + 1 and will only contain UTF8-encoded printable characters (excluding the null-terminator).

Return Value

  • An EOS_EResult that indicates whether the Epic Online Services Account ID string was copied into the OutBuffer.

  • EOS_Success - The OutBuffer was filled, and InOutBufferLength contains the number of characters copied into OutBuffer including the null terminator.

  • EOS_InvalidParameters - Either OutBuffer or InOutBufferLength were passed as NULL parameters.

  • EOS_InvalidUser - The AccountId is invalid and cannot be stringified.

  • EOS_LimitExceeded - The OutBuffer is not large enough to receive the Epic Online Services Account ID string. InOutBufferLength contains the required minimum length to perform the operation successfully.
