TradeOffer @ v1

Alexander Corn edited this page Jun 13, 2016 · 1 revision

TradeOffer is a class which represents an individual trade offer sent or received by your account. It cannot be instantiated directly, it must be created using TradeOfferManager#createOffer, TradeOfferManager#getOffer, or TradeOfferManager#getOffers.

Properties

Each TradeOffer object has a number of read-only properties. To change an offer, you must use a method.

  • manager - The TradeOfferManager which owns this TradeOffer. If you want to get the SteamID of the bot account which sent/received this trade offer, use offer.manager.steamID.
  • id - The trade offer's unique numeric ID, represented as a string
  • partner - The other party in this offer, as a SteamID object
  • message - A message, possibly empty, included with the trade offer by its sender
  • state - A value from the ETradeOfferState enum
  • itemsToGive - An array of items to be given from your account should this offer be accepted
  • itemsToReceive - An array of items to be given from the other account and received by yours should this offer be accepted
  • isOurOffer - true if this offer was sent by you, false if you received it
  • created - A Date object representing when the trade offer was sent
  • updated - A Date object representing when the trade offer was last updated (equal to created if never updated)
  • expires - A Date object representing when the trade offer will expire if not acted on
  • tradeID - A numeric trade ID, represented as a string, if the offer was accepted. null otherwise. This value won't be very useful to you.
  • fromRealTimeTrade - true if this trade offer was created automatically from a real-time trade that was committed, false if it was explicitly sent as a trade offer
  • confirmationMethod - If this offer needs to be confirmed by you, this is a value from EConfirmationMethod
  • escrowEnds - If this offer is in state InEscrow (11), this is a Date object representing when the offer should exit escrow
  • rawJson - The stringified raw JSON from the WebAPI from which this TradeOffer object was constructed

Methods

There are a number of methods available to each TradeOffer object, although not all are available for all states.

isGlitched()

v1.22.0 or later is required to use this method

Checks if the offer is "glitched". Returns true (glitched) or false (not glitched). An offer is considered "glitched" if it has been sent and either contains no items (itemsToGive and itemsToReceive are both empty) or any item has an empty or undefined name. Neither of these conditions can be met under normal, non-buggy Steam conditions.

data(key[, value])

  • key - A string containing the data key you wish to get/set.
  • value - Any arbitrary data type that can be stringified using JSON.stringify. Using undefined will unset the value.

v1.9.0 or later is required to use this method.

Gets or sets any arbitrary data you wish to associate with a trade offer. This can be useful to give offers context. This data is stored in poll data, so you will need to save and restore that if you want your offer data to persist across app sessions.

Omit value to get the data, specify it to set. For example:

var offer = manager.createOffer('[U:1:46143802]');
console.log(offer.data('foo')); // undefined
offer.data('foo', 'bar');
console.log(offer.data('foo')); // bar

This offer data is permanently tied to the trade offer, so it can be accessed and updated anywhere the offer's object is available (e.g. when creating an object, in an update event, or in getOffer). You can use this method before you send an offer, but any data you set will be discarded if the offer is not sent and assigned an offer ID.

Some data keys are special, and are used to modify the properties or options of a specific trade offer. These are:

cancelTime

Used to change the time after which the trade offer will be automatically canceled if not acted on by the other party. This can only be set for an offer which we created, and only if the offer is either unsent or Active.

Set to 0 to disable automatic cancellation, undefined to use the TradeOfferManager's cancelTime (default if not set), or any other numeric value to automatically cancel the offer after that many milliseconds have passed after it was sent.

Usage of this option is governed by the same rules as cancelTime in the TradeOfferManager's constructor (e.g. this is only effective if timed polling is enabled).

loadPartnerInventory(appid, contextid, callback)

  • appid - The ID of the app for which you wish to load the inventory
  • contextid - The ID of the context within the app for which you wish to load the inventory
  • callback - A callback to be invoked when complete.
    • err - An Error object on failure, null on success
    • inventory - An array of the user's inventory items, as EconItem objects
    • currencies - An array of the user's currency items, as EconItem objects

Gets the contents of your trading partner's inventory for a particular app and context.

addMyItem(item)

  • item - An item object

Adds a given item to a new trade offer. The item object should be in the same format as is returned by the Steam inventory. That is, it should have the following properties:

  • assetid - The item's asset ID within its context (the property can also be named id)
  • appid - The ID of the app to which the item belongs
  • contextid - The ID of the context within the app to which the item belongs
  • amount - Default 1, if the item is stackable, this is how much of the stack will be added

Returns true if the item wasn't already in the offer and so was added successfully, or false if it was already in the offer.

As trade offers are created locally, this method does not involve any networking and returns immediately with no callback.

addMyItems(items)

  • items - An array of item objects

Convenience method which simply calls addMyItem for each item in the array. Returns the number of items that were successfully added.

removeMyItem(item)

  • item - An item object

Removes an item from your side of the trade offer. Returns true if the item was found and removed successfully, or false if the item wasn't found in the offer.

As trade offers are created locally, this method does not involve any networking and returns immediately with no callback.

removeMyItems(items)

  • items - An array of item objects

Convenience method which simply calls removeMyItem for each item in the array. Returns the number of items that were successfully removed.

addTheirItem(item)

  • item - An item object

Same as addMyItem, but for the partner's side of the trade.

addTheirItems(items)

  • items - An array of item objects

Convenience method which simply calls addTheirItem for each item in the array. Returns the number of items that were successfully added.

removeTheirItem(item)

  • item - An item object

Removes an item from the other side of the trade offer. Returns true if the item was found and removed successfully, or false if the item wasn't found in the offer.

As trade offers are created locally, this method does not involve any networking and returns immediately with no callback.

removeTheirItems(items)

  • items - An array of item objects

Convenience method which simply calls removeTheirItem for each item in the array. Returns the number of items that were successfully removed.

containsItem(item)

  • item - An item object containing appid, contextid, and assetid/id properties

v1.22.0 or later is required to use this method

Returns true if the given item is in this offer, or false if not.

send(message[, token, callback])

  • message - Required. A message to include with the offer. Anything longer than 128 characters will be truncated. Can be empty string.
  • token - Optional. If sending an offer to someone who's not your friend, you'll need to include their trade offer token (found as token parameter in their Trade URL) here.
  • callback - Optional. A callback to be invoked when complete.
    • err - An Error object on failure, null on success
    • status - pending if awaiting email/mobile confirmation, sent if offer was successfully sent to the other party

Sends a newly-created offer. Only works if this is an offer created with TradeOfferManager#createOffer which hasn't been sent yet. When the callback fires, if successful, the offer's id parameter will be defined. All other parameters will be defined with the module's best guess for their values. As of v1.1.0, on failure, the err object may contain an eresult property. As of v1.3.0, on failure, the err object may contain a cause property which will be one of TradeBan (if the partner is trade banned), NewDevice (if you've logged in from a new device and must wait), or TargetCannotTrade (if the partner cannot trade due to Steam Guard, password reset, etc.).

getEscrowDuration(callback)

  • callback - Called when the request completes
    • err - An Error object on failure, null on success
    • daysTheirEscrow - If you accept this trade and the other party is losing items, the trade will be held for up to this many days
    • daysMyEscrow - If you accept this trade and you are losing items, the trade will be held for up to this many days

v1.14.0 or later is required to use this method

Checks to see if accepting this trade would incur any escrow. You can only call this for offers that you have received which are Active.

If you want to check the potential escrow duration before you send an offer, use TradeOfferManager#getEscrowDuration instead.

cancel([callback])

  • callback - Optional. A callback to be invoked when complete.
    • err - An Error object on failure, null on success

This this trade offer was sent by us, cancels it. If it was sent to us, declines it. As of v1.1.0, on failure, the err object may contain an eresult property.

decline([callback])

  • callback - Optional. A callback to be invoked when complete.
    • err - An Error object on failure, null on success

Alias of cancel

accept([autoRetry][, callback])

  • autoRetry - Optional. Controls whether or not the manager should continually attempt to retry acceptance every minute if accept fails for some reason. Defaults to true.
  • callback - Optional. A callback to be invoked when complete.
    • err - An Error object on failure, null on success
    • status - pending if awaiting email confirmation to be committed, accepted if successfully accepted

v1.4.0 or later is required to use autoRetry.

Accepts an offer that was sent to us. Once the callback fires, you can call getReceivedItems to get details about the items you received, including their new assetids. As of v1.1.0, on failure, the err object may contain an eresult property. As of v1.3.0, on failure, the err object may contain a cause property which will be one of TradeBan (if the partner is trade banned), NewDevice (if you've logged in from a new device and must wait), or TargetCannotTrade (if the partner cannot trade due to Steam Guard, password reset, etc.).

If an error occurs, polling is enabled, and autoRetry isn't set to false, node-steam-tradeoffer-manager will automatically keep trying to accept the offer every minute, unless cause is defined on the Error object. Therefore, to know if an accepted offer goes through, you should:

  • Wait for the callback, and if err is null, then process the offer, otherwise
  • Wait for the receivedOfferChanged event and check the offer's state

duplicate()

v1.15.0 or later is required to use this method

Returns a new unsent TradeOffer object that contains the same items as this one. Same as TradeOffer#counter, except sending this offer won't mark the original as Countered.

counter()

v1.2.0 or later is required to use this method

Returns a new unsent TradeOffer object that contains the same items as this one. Sending the new trade offer will send a counter offer, and this offer will be marked as Countered.

update(callback)

  • callback - Required. A callback to be invoked when complete.
    • err - An Error object on failure, null on success

v1.15.0 or later is required to use this method

Fetch the latest data for this offer from the WebAPI. When the callback is fired, if an error didn't occur then all of this offer's properties will be updated with the newest values.

getReceivedItems([getActions, ]callback)

  • getActions - Optional. If true, then the descriptions of the received items will be loaded from the WebAPI in order to populate the items' actions. Default false.
  • callback - Required. A callback to be invoked when complete.
    • err - An Error object on failure, null on success
    • items - An array of EconItem objects that you received.

v1.19.0 or later is required to use getActions.

Can be called on an accepted offer to retrieve item data about the items you received, including names, descriptions, and new assetids. Will not include any actions (e.g. the CS:GO inspect link) unless getActions is true.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
