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"; -> true // Full _box canAdd "FirstAidKit"; -> 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:
_i = [(uniformContainer player),(vestContainer player),(backpackContainer player)] call BIS_fnc_selectRandom; if (_i canAdd "Rangefinder") then { _i addItemCargoGlobal ["Rangefinder",1]; };
