Party members with server name?

Hello,

Is there a way to retreive party members' name with realm name (something like "Leroy-KirinTor")?
API GetHomePartyInfo() only returns names.

Thanks.

UnitName
If the realm return is nil then they are on your realm (GetRealmName)

OK, so if I well understand, the only way is to loop on GetHomePartyInfo() result?
I can't check right now but what happen if, let's say, "Leroy" from Kirin Tor, and "Leroy" from Aggramar are in the same party?

A general idea.
Code:
local unit = "player"
local name = UnitName(unit)
local realm = GetRealmName()
print(unit, name, "from", realm)
for i=1, 4 do
	unit = "party"..i
	if UnitExists(unit) then
		name, realm = UnitName(unit)
		if not realm then
			realm = GetRealmName()
		end
		print(unit, name, "from", realm)
	end
end

If you want the normalized name for your realm (used for whisper targets), you can use GetNormalizedRealmName(). Normalized realm names generally have spaces removed. I don't know if special characters like hyphens and apostrophes are removed as well.

Thank you for your answers

I finally use: name, realm = UnitFullName(unit), in order to have the "condensed" form of server name, without space.
