Can also be used on any object that has inventory, not only player inventory containers.

Where _box is B_supplyCrate_F:
// empty _box canAdd "FirstAidKit"; // returns true // full _box canAdd "FirstAidKit"; // returns false

This can also be used as alternative to canAddItemToBackpack, canAddItemToUniform, canAddItemToVest where container might not be strictly defined. In some cases it might be a good optimisation for your code, where you also don't need to perform checks on which type of player container this is. Example:
private _container = selectRandom [uniformContainer player, vestContainer player, backpackContainer player]; if (_container canAdd "Rangefinder") then { _container addItemCargoGlobal ["Rangefinder", 1]; };
