get_name_ea
Category: Names

idaman ea_t ida_export
get_name_ea(ea_t from, const char *name)
Return the address of where the name supplied in *name is defined. If you are after a name that is local to a function, from should be within the same function, or it won't be seen. If you are not after a local name, from should just be BADADDR.

Examples:
#include <kernwin.hpp> // For askstr and get_screen_ea
#include <name.hpp>

// Get the cursor address
ea_t addr = get_screen_ea();

// Ask the user for a string (see kernwin.hpp), which will be the name we search for.
char *name = askstr(HIST_IDENT,              // History identifier
                    "start",                 // Default value
                    "Please enter a name");  // Prompt

// Display the address that the name represents. You will get FFFFFFFF for stack variables
// and nonexistent names.
msg("Address: %a\n", get_name_ea(addr, name));
